What Insurance Do HVAC Technicians Need?

Since HVAC technicians and contractors work in clients’ homes, it’s safe to say you face a lot of unique risks. For example, if you end up installing a faulty cooling system in a customer’s home, you could be liable for any resulting damages. Or let’s say you leave your tools out and a customer trips over them. If the customer gets hurt, you might have to pay out-of-pocket for their medical bills.
