Heating contractors (also known as HVAC contractors) are important in states where the weather is as cold as it is in Maine. Maine is a New England state where residents see temperatures ranging anywhere from an average high of 79° in July to an average low of 12° in January.
Having a Problem with your Heating Contractor?
Although some heating contractors may be thankful for not having to meet licensing requirements, this leaves residents of the state with one less safeguard. (In fact, the Maine Attorney General's website ranks home contractors as one of the top 3 complaints received by their Mediation Program each year.) The good news is that those who have a problem with an HVAC contractor that they have hired can work with the Attorney General's office to try to resolve the problem. They can also contact the Better Business Bureau of Maine.
HVAC Licensing Requirements in Maine
Many states require their building contractors, such as HVAC contractors, to be licensed. This allows the state to ensure that these contractors are doing a good job and abiding by licensing requirements. Maine does not require general building contractors, including heating contractors, to be licensed. Some contractors do need a license in Maine, including those that deal with asbestos and plumbing. Make sure to contact your town's code officials as well -- sometimes towns have more stringent requirements than the state.
