New York is the third most populated state in the country, after California and Texas, but boasts the largest city in the country: New York City.
The state's average summertime temperature is in the high 70s, with occasional bouts of uncomfortable humidity. In winters the average temperature is in the low 30s. To be comfortable all year round, heating and air conditioning units are a necessity.
New York does not have a state licensing board for HVAC contractors, all licensing is done at the local level.
Buyer Beware (or at least, "Buyer, Be Aware!")
New York's Better Business Bureau listed building contractors at number 7 on the top 10 list of number of complaints they received in 2005 - with just over 1,000 complaints. In contrast, the top two professions on the list (electronics and financial services) had almost 3,000 complaints each.
To file a complaint against a contractor, visit the New York State Consumer Protection Board. Their service is available in both English and Spanish. The Board is currently taking surveys about home improvement contractors, from both the consumer and contractor's points of view.
