    What kind of license do you need in Chicago and do you buy it from Obama?

    The state of Illinois does not require a license for HVAC or to be a GC, so what kind of license do you need for Chicago to do HVAC?

    The job that was posted here, I don't think was done in Chicago.

    You still did not answer my question about what kind of License is needed to do HVAC work in Chicago.

    Chicago has some very high standards, that is where Barack learned how politics works.

    Chicago is conduit city, no romex there.

    They have their own fire alarm approvals and the industry conforms to meet Chicago standards.

    Regulated construction.

    Someone from Chicago would look at the flex, ductboard and pvc/cpvc used in Florida and be shocked at the 'sub-standard' way you do things down there. I do not mind ductboard myself, especially in attics it does not leak like metal can, and pvc/cpvc are more durable than copper in my own local conditions.

    If you want argue politics and ***** about Obama, take a stroll over to ARP

    Is the gap between the OPs condensers going to drive up head pressure, I would say no.

    Florida had to get hit by Andrew to learn a few things that were basically common sense. I say you guys up there should read the story of the three little pigs and next time you are hit by a big one, maybe the aerial photos do not look like someone spilled 10 zillion toothpicks.

    The way we build has a greater impact on our comfort, energy consumption and IAQ than any HVAC system we install.

    Chicago has some of the strictest building codes in the country.

    DWV: no-hub cast iron and not PVC
    POTABLE: copper and not PVC.
    EMT & pulled instead of romex & greenfield
    sheet metal duct not duct board
    flex duct limited to five feet and we always went hard to the grills anyways
    Value & Quality & Durability drive price, not the other way around

    Some of the most skilled tradespeople I have ever had the pleasure to work with, and I worked there 25+ years. I have now been in Fl for almost a decade and although I see some good stuff, for the most part it is a hack, cutthroat low-ball driven environment where often the cheapest materials and lowest paid labor is used. Doesnt even compare to Chicagos hacks. What does Obama have to do with HVAC? Its hard not to be a dickhead when thats what you aspire to.

    Florida has had strict contractor licensing laws and codes long before Andrew.

    I wonder how Illinois with it's lax codes and non existant licensing for GC's would do if hit by an Andrew type storm.
