Part One: The 4 Dangers of Unlicensed & Uninsured HVAC Technicians


Unlicensed contractors lack the experience and training to do the job correctly.
Their financial stability and longevity are also questionable. A leading
Florida HVAC company, we are passionate about helping people find the quality
Tampa AC repair they deserve. Here are seven signs that your HVAC contractor is operating
without a license:

  • The ads they run and their work vehicles do not include the contractor’s
    license number. The fact is that many states require licensed contractors
    to display their business names, addresses, and contractor numbers on
    their vehicles. A company that doesn’t adhere to this regulation
    may have something to hide.
  • A large down-payment is required before work begins, or contractors attempt
    to collect funds during the early phases of AC installation. Respectable
    contractors provide estimates upfront and don’t demand payment until
    after the job is done.
  • You are asked to obtain the permit. The contractor should take out the
    permit before work begins rather than leaving you on the hook.
  • The contractor is unwilling to put all of the terms in writing and prefers
    a verbal agreement. Any decent HVAC tech will give you a written estimate.
    In fact, Del-Air offers free quotes and a 100% satisfaction guarantee
    on service.
  • The HVAC technician does not have proof of insurance. Even if you have
    homeowner’s insurance, it probably doesn’t cover personal
    injury cases involving contractors. Don’t put your family at risk
    by hiring someone who isn’t insured.
  • The contractor will not give any references or referrals. Why would you
    choose an HVAC professional who can’t back up his or her skills
    with testimonials from happy customers?
  • You are told to make the check payable to an individual name or asked to
    make all payments in cash. If your HVAC technician doesn’t take
    credit cards, he or she probably doesn’t work for a licensed company.
