Areas in Columbus Commonly Serviced

Columbus is consistently ranked among the top growing metropolitan areas in the nation. Enjoying both a high job growth rate and relatively low cost of living, the city is also the state's capital and home to a number of universities and tech/research companies. Located in the middle of the state, in Franklin County, it has a population of just under 800,000, according to the 2010 census, making it the 15th largest city in the U.S. The following five neighborhoods are among the most popular areas for homeowners in Columbus:

  • German Village
    The downtown German Village was first settled in the mid-19th century and is home to some 1,600 buildings listed in the National Register of Historic places. Popular among upper middle class families and the gay/lesbian population, most of the homes in this area are renovations.

  • Clintonville
    One of the larger Columbus "neighborhoods," Clintonville is located to the north of downtown and is home to more than 23,000 residents, many of which are families or students at Ohio State University.

  • Merion Village
    A diverse working class area located south of downtown, Marion Village was originally developed in the early 20th century. Its population includes new residents as well as many families who have lived in Columbus for generations.

  • Eastmoor
    To the east of downtown, Eastmoor is a largely residential area with large homes, winding drives, and abundant foliage.

  • Westgate
    Located west of downtown, Westgate is one of the more suburban areas around Columbus. Many of its homes were built following World War II and the area as a whole maintains a nostalgic, never-changing feel.

Licensing & Insurance Requirements

Columbus requires all HVAC contractors to obtain an Ohio state license to perform HVAC work before doing any contract jobs within its limits. Ohio requires HVAC technicians to meet the following requirements to obtain their HVAC license:

  • Be over age 18
  • Be a United States citizen or legal alien
  • Pass the Ohio state licensing exam
  • Have a combination of experience and education equivalent to 5 years working in the trade

In addition, the state requires licensed HVAC technicians to carry a minimum of $500,000 of liability insurance. This means any HVAC tech working in the area should carry the same level of insurance.

How Heating and Furnace Systems Affect Home Values in Columbus

Due to the Midwest’s notoriously humid climate, which includes cold, dry winters, a properly working heating system is essential for homes in Columbus. A home's value increases with an energy-efficient heating system and furnace, especially because heating oil and fuel prices can vary from year to year.

At minimum, Columbus homeowners need to regularly service all aspects of their heating system by scheduling annual cleanings and addressing the need for repair. This ensures their comfort throughout the winter and maintains the value of their homes.
