Your home is probably one of the biggest investments you’ll ever make, so of course you want to protect it. This is why it’s so important to hire an HVAC company that is licensed, bonded and insured. These credentials can help you feel confident that your contractor meets Georgia’s requirements for HVAC contractors. These credentials also ensure that you will get quality service and workmanship.
Here is a brief overview of these terms:
- Licensed – The state of Georgia requires HVAC contractors to be licensed in the specific field in which they work. In order to obtain a license, the professional must submit an application and pass an examination. Some examples of HVAC licenses granted in the state Georgia are: low voltage contractor, conditioned air contractor, electrical contractor and utility contractor.
- Bonded – In cases where contractors make a mistake such as failure to obtain permits, poor work or nonpayment of subcontractors, bonds can act as a safety net. If an HVAC company purchases a bond, then the homeowner won’t be held responsible for these extra costs.
- Insured – For added protection, any HVAC company you deal with should be insured. The HVAC contractor should be able to provide you with proof of general liability insurance. Make sure that all the information on the insurance is correct and corresponds to the individual or business.
Remember that if you choose to work with an HVAC company that’s not licensed, bonded and insured, you may find yourself regretting it when something goes wrong with the job. Your home is valuable, so why risk hiring unqualified contractors? Contractors that are licensed, bonded and insured can give you the peace of mind you need to move forward with any work that must be completed in your home.
