Permit Or NO DEAL
Why You Should ONLY Use A Westchester HVAC Contractor That
Pulls A Permit On Every Job
Hint: It’s THE LAW
Here’s the thing about a permit. It’s not an extra boost or a handy thing to have — it’s a hardcore MUST HAVE. Every single Westchester HVAC contractor MUST obtain a permit from a building department in Westchester county in order to be allowed to work LEGALLY.
Here’s the other thing about a permit. It takes work to get one. You need to understand the process, and you need to be dedicated to getting it. To give you an idea of the kind of effort involved — we spend around $250,000 a year in administration costs to obtain permits.
Here’s why you absolutely should NEVER EVER hire a contractor who thinks getting a permit is optional.
You’re Left With A MESS To Deal With
The code written for these permits is usually the MINIMUM. If your HVAC contractor didn’t bother to get a permit and has no relationship with the building inspector you can bet he’s operating with NO license and NO insurance.
So, let’s break that down. He’s breaking the law by operating without a permit. He’s doing less than the code requires — which is below the minimum. He’s not licensed to work in the county. And he has no warranty or insurance whatsoever.
What does this mean for you? This means he has NO OBLIGATION to you. Whatever he messes up in your home — you’re 100% responsible for it.
After all is said and done, you’re left with an illegal HVAC system that probably functions at a suboptimal level — and a contractor in the wind.

Good Luck Selling Your Home
We get calls DAILY from homeowners who are desperately trying to sell their homes…but they’re stuck. Once you have an illegal HVAC system in your home, you’ll need to twist yourself into knots to get it legalized.
Legalizing work done in your home starts at $3500. No matter how handy you are as a homeowner, you’re not legally allowed to do this kind of work yourself. This whole process holds up closing, inspection, loses buyers and deals. In a word: it’s a HEADACHE.
