    Hvac technician flyers

    Would it be ok for an Hvac/r technician to make flyers or business cards and pass them out. Note: unemployed, no contractors license.

    To solicit to the public, not without a contractors license.
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    Down here in the valley there are some contractors who follow trucks/vans that look like service vehicles or call them out and try to videotape techs doing a/c work and turn them in for reward. There two in particular who are very bitter and are out daily doing this.
    Craigslist guys are usually getting busted in the news. Before I got my TACLA I did work for family and friends on the DL and tried to have my truck like a daily driver and passed out simple cards to them. I usually was called in to fix work from "reputable contractors" who had techs on commission only, like bad $300 5 mfd capacitors, or $500 multi h/p cond mtrs etc which contractor would not warranty just wanted to sell them whole new unit even though cust unit was about 3 yrs old at most and won over a lot of customers. I still remember an older lady who got charged for 20 lbs of R22 on a 2 1/2 ton unit by the largest a/c company down here and the list goes on.

    In Texas you must have contractor license to do service for the general public.

    In TX, you must have a TACL license if you are for hire. First letter is the Classification, "A" is infinite TR or "B" is up to 25TR. Last letter is the endorsement; "E" is AC, "R" is Refrigeration, and "C" is both.
