Heating Contractors in DelawareBrowse Heating Contractors in all states
Delaware, located on the Atlantic Coast and Eastern Seaboard, was the first state to be admitted to the union on December 7, 1787. So, it's no wonder that its nickname is "The First State". Delaware has a population of 783,000 (according the last U.S. Census in 2000) and has four distinct seasons. In fact, the coldest day in Delaware's history was on January 17, 1893, while the hottest day recorded was on 110° F on July 21, 1930. Interestingly enough, both records occurred in the city of Millsboro! With that kind of weather, furnaces and air conditioners are definitely top priorities for Delaware residents.
Even though Delaware's motto is "Liberty and Independence", it has some strict rules with regard to its heating and air conditioning contractors. To do business in Delaware as a contractor or subcontractor, you must get a license from the Delaware Division of Revenue. If you're a non-resident, you'll also need a surety bond for 6% of any contract work you do totaling $20,000 or more within a calendar year. Before you can bid on a job over $50,000 you must apply for a license.
To file a complaint against a Delaware contractor contact the Better Business Bureau. Another option is to file a complaint with the Delaware Attorney General.
