HVAC Permit Application Guideline

As you may know, some HVAC contractors have their own design/engineer team and will apply for HVAC permit on our behalf.

In projects where we are dealing with a contractor that doesn’t have it we will need to involve an HVAC designer to get the Heat Loss and Gain calculation performed, followed by requesting HVAC permit from the city.

Below is contact information for the HVAC designer (can also be found at partner’s list on coco)

Getting Permit Package Ready

Request CAD file from Keith.

Email Building Permit Drawings to Doug along with CAD file. A site meeting with Doug is recommended.
