Connecticut has the highest per capita income of any state in the country, and ranked first in median household income. But not everyone in Connecticut is wealthy. The city of Hartford has one of the ten lowest per capita incomes in the U.S. The southwest portion of the state is considered part of the tri-state area, along with southern New York and northern New Jersey. Summers are hot and humid throughout the state, although average summer temperatures usually don't go above the low 80s. Temperatures in the winter rarely dip below the high 20s or low 30s. In Connecticut, both home improvement and new home construction contractors require certification, and those working on major projects must be registered. Those who need licenses include contractors who do heating, piping, and cooling work.
Contractors need to pass an exam for any license. Contractors must have two years of experience as a Connecticut-licensed journeyman or Department-approved equivalent to apply for a contractor exam. To take the journeyman exam, contractors need to complete an apprenticeship program or Department-approved equivalent. Note that licenses expire every August 31. If you have a complaint or concern about your HVAC contractor, contact the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection, or the local Better Business Bureau.
Low income individuals who are having difficulty paying their heating bills should contact Connecticut Energy Assistance Program (CEAP).
