Licensing & Insurance Requirements

The state of Michigan requires mechanics who work on residential buildings or both residential and commercial buildings to have contractor's licenses. This includes anyone working on HVAC equipment, ductwork, limited or unlimited heating services, or hydronic heating systems. Additionally, the Michigan Department of Labor's Bureau of Construction Codes and Board of Mechanical Rules require a specialty license for anyone working with liquid propane tanks and pipes, gas piping, gas piping and venting, underground tanks and pipes, solid fuel, or solar systems. Consumers can verify that a tradesman or contractor has a license by searching http://www.cis.state.mi.us/verify.htm.

Obtaining a License

Contractors and tradesmen must contact the Michigan Department of Labor's Bureau of Construction Codes and Board of Mechanical Rules based in Lansing. Becoming licensed requires passing a mechanical contractor's license exam. To be eligible to take the exam, the state requires applicants to have three years’ work experience or a combination of board-approved education and work experience. The costs of becoming licensed include the following:

  • Taking the licensure exam: $25
  • Obtaining the license: $75
  • Required payment to the Construction Lien Recovery Fund: $50

Obtaining Contractor's Insurance

Having insurance typically makes heating and furnace contractors more appealing to customers, many of whom expect contractors to have liability insurance. At minimum, contractors should have four major insurances to protect their businesses, employees, and clients: property, liability, workers' compensation, and automobile. Contractors should check with the state to determine the required workers' compensation coverage.
