Be aware that in Massachusetts there is no mechanical or HVAC licensing for residential or light commercial contractors. Consequently, there are no mandatory inspections.
The only permits usually pulled are electrical and (if equipment is gas fired) gas and then only gas lines, venting and/or electrical lines are inspected. Ductwork is rarely inspected unless it is on a new construction project.
Don’t fall into the trap of hiring a company that is able to offer a cheaper price because they operate without a license, don’t ‘pull’ required permits, or don’t carry adequate insurance. R. J. Franey Mechanical Services is a licensed contractor and obtains all municipal and state permits as required. R. J. Franey Mechanical Services is insured for Workers Compensation and for liability insurance.
Compliance with codes and adequate insurance is important to you for liability reasons. If a worker is injured and the contractor is not insured, you can be held liable. Or, if there is an insurance claim due to a fire or an accident that is related to unlicensed work or work for which no permit was obtained, your insurance company may dispute the claim. You also want to avoid questions related to workmanship when you sell the house, which may end up costing you more than the original repair to correct.
With R. J. Franey Mechanical Services, you have peace of mind knowing that you are not dealing with a ‘fly-by-night’ company that can leave you ‘hung out to dry’.
