Why You Should Always Require a Permit for Your A/C Change Out/Replacement


No Nonsense Real Estate is here to address a major issue that many homeowners may not even be aware of: the failure of some A/C contractors to pull permits when replacing or upgrading a home’s A/C system. This is a serious problem that can lead to a host of issues down the line, and we believe it’s high time for everyone to take notice.

First and foremost, it’s important to understand why pulling a permit is so crucial. A permit ensures that the installation of the new A/C system is done correctly and up to code. Without one, there’s simply no way to verify that the contractor followed the proper installation protocols. This can be especially dangerous in areas like Florida where the heat and humidity can be unforgiving.

But it’s not just about safety – having a permit is also beneficial when it comes time to sell your home. Potential buyers will want to know that the A/C was upgraded the right way, and having a permit to show for it can be a major selling point. Without one, buyers may be hesitant to make an offer or may even request that the system be inspected at their own expense.

So why aren’t more contractors pulling permits? It’s hard to say for sure, but it could be due to a lack of knowledge, laziness, or an attempt to cut corners and save money. Whatever the reason, it’s simply unacceptable. Permit costs are minimal at best and it’s an important step to ensure the safety and value of your home.

At No Nonsense Real Estate, we believe that every homeowner should require their A/C contractor to pull a permit when replacing or upgrading their A/C system. We make it our mission to educate our clients about the importance of permits and work with licensed contractors who follow all the necessary protocols. We want to make sure that our clients have peace of mind knowing that their A/C system was installed correctly and up to code.

So if you’re a homeowner who’s considering an A/C upgrade or replacement, make sure to insist on a permit. It’s a small step that can make a big difference in the safety and value of your home. And if you’re working with No Nonsense Real Estate, you can rest assured that we’ve got your back.
