Winters can range from mild to severe. As a matter of fact, Idaho's coldest day was on January 23, 1943, when temperatures dropped to a freezing-cold minus 60° F!

If you feel that your Heating Contractor has not met his or her legal obligations on a job that they have performed for you, your first step should be to speak directly with the contractor about the situation. This will save you time, money and frustration. However, if that doesn't work, you will need outside help. The Boise office of the Idaho Better Business Bureau may be of service -- or you may want to contact Idaho's Attorney General.
Idaho residents that need assistance with their home heating costs may find help with LIHEAP, an office of the US Department of Health and Human Services.
Idaho's state motto is "May it Endure Forever". So it's no wonder that contractors in Idaho are required to undergo a three-step process: 1) Apprenticeship: Work under a licensed contractor or journeyman; no minimum length of time specified; 2) Journeyman: Serve as an apprentice for a period of four (4) years and pass a state examination; 3) Contractor candidates: Must have and show proof of working a minimum of 24 months as a HVAC journeyman, which requires passing a state examination. Contractors must also carry a $2000 performance bond. For more information about the state of Idaho's contractor licensing regulations, see this article.
