Who needs the HVAC or refrigeration bond?
In the State of Alabama, HVAC and refrigeration contractors are required to obtain a $15,000 surety bond in order to be in compliance with Code of Alabama 1975, 34-31-18.
What is the HVAC or refrigeration bond?
The $15,000 HVAC or refrigeration bond protects the party requesting the surety bond, the Obligee, against any financial losses as a result of poor financial choices, damages, unethical decisions, or a failure to adhere to state and local laws and regulations on the part of you, the Principal. By obtaining your bond, you are telling the Obligee that you can be trusted and that you stand by your business decisions.
All Alabama HVAC licenses expire annually on December 31st, but the bonds expire throughout the year depending on when you first obtained your license.
What else do I need to obtain or renew my license?
While both HVAC and refrigeration work are covered under the same bond, any applicants planning to work as both an HVAC and a refrigeration contractor must pass the separate tests required for each license. For additional information, consult the refrigeration application instructions here.
