Permits help homeowners and contractors
Why does The Energy Network require that HVAC projects enrolled in  Cool Comfort Financing meet local permitting requirements? Permitting helps both homeowners and contractors by ensuring your project:
  • Complies with local laws and code.
  • Meets manufacturer's installation instructions and code safety requirements.
  • Demonstrates to your customers that you provide informed advice.
For contractors, educating customers about permit requirements gives your company legitimacy in the face of your competitor. For homeowners, permits offer peace of mind for safety and compliance, helping customers feel even more comfortable with completing their HVAC projects.

Plus, your permitted HVAC project may be eligible for low-rates with Cool Comfort Financing. For questions about Cool Comfort Financing or how permits impact your project's financing, contact us at (877) 785-2237 or
