Heating / Ventilation Projects

Heating / Ventilation Project Information

Heating permits are needed for any installation, alteration, repair, relocation, replacement, or addition to any piping (including gas piping), equipment, or duct work associated with the heating / cooling or ventilation systems.

Obtaining a Permit

Only an HVAC contractor that is licensed with the City of St. Cloud or the owner of the property (single-family dwelling only) can obtain a heating / ventilation permit. Homeowners who are doing their own work must own and occupy the residence, and the property cannot be used for any rental or daycare purposes. 

Getting Licensed

See Contractor Licensing and Mechanical Exam Forms for additional information on getting licensed.

Heating / Ventilation Permits

All permits shall become invalid unless the work is commenced within 180 days after its issuance, or if the work is suspended or abandoned for a period of 180 days after the time the work is commenced.
