When do I need a mechanical permit?

A permit is required when installing or changing any mechanical system (heating, air conditioning, and ventilation) or component of the system. Simple maintenance or repairs do not require a permit. A homeowner working on his own home or a City Licensed Contractor may apply for this permit. When applying for a Mechanical Permit, the following things are required:

  • Online application
  • Description of the work to be done
  • An updated City Contractor's License (for contractors only)
