Are You Licensed and Insured?

November 30, 2016 Katie Hoffman



Before hiring any contractor, you can check their license at and verify they are licensed to work.


Here is our license information:

Air Conditioning/Refrigeration Contractor
License #: TACLB00076800E


We are also fully insured.


There are several really good reasons why you should hire a licensed company:


1.) If a company is licensed, they must do high quality work because they cannot just change their business name if things go wrong. When you get an ACR contractors license, you must include the name of your business with your license. If a company is not licensed, they can do bad work, defraud people of money, and worse, and then just change the name of their company and disappear into the wind.


2.) An ACR contractor’s license is hard to get and requires four or more years of experience in the AC business. When you hire an unlicensed company, you really don’t know if they know what they are doing. They may have learned a few things about AC and heaters, but can cause you more money in the long run if they don’t fully know what they are doing.


3.) Unlicensed companies may not honor their warranties because if something goes wrong with their business, they can just change their name and disappear, or start again the next day with a new name and nobody would know. Because there is no state held record of their business, and the business is being conducted illegally, whether or not they honor any warranties or perform good work is really just a matter of chance.
