Part Two: 7 Signs Your HVAC Tech Is Unlicensed


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.
  • Don’t Let Just Anyway Handle Your HVAC Unit

    We are so grateful that Del-Air took care of us. It was an easy initial call. They ran routine service/maintenance. In that appointment, Raymond showed us areas in our air units that needed addressing. He took his time and made sure he made a thorough inspection of all the equipment. And what a nice gentleman.

    This was my first experience with Del-Air and they were prompt, professional, and knowledgeable. They were able to get me in on the same day for a maintenance visit, which I wasn’t expecting but very much appreciated. The office staff was pleasant and so was the technician that came out to service my air conditioners. Thanks…

    Called at 9pm and they were at our house the next day at 9am. Thorough evaluation , great communication, and fixed our problem without a hard upsell for a whole new unit I. Honest service and I have great confidence with this company moving forward.
