Heating contractors who wish to conduct business in Massillon, Ohio, must be licensed and registered with the city, pay an application fee of $75, a registration fee of $150, and furnish the city with a $10,000 Massillon HVAC contractor bond.
The surety bond requirement is met by your choice of purchasing the bond through AmeriPro Surety Bonds.
Our agency offers the city’s HVAC contractor bond as a new and/or renewal surety bond.
The purpose of the heating contractor bond is a to serve as a financial guarantee that heating contractors operating in the city will act in full conformity with the Heating Code of the City of Massillon in the course of their professional duties.
This compliance specifically refers to Ordinance 1321.
The bond’s protections --- again for the city of Massillon and its residents --- extends also to any employees and subcontractors whom you hire in connection with heating work performed.
Since the surety bond is a protection for the city of Massillon --- not your heating business --- in the event that a claim is paid against your surety bond, it is your legal liability to reimburse the surety for all costs and fees involved in the claim’s settlement.
The premium, or the cost of the Massillon heating contractor bond should be about $100, annually for almost all persons purchasing this bond.
Once issued, by statute, the bond’s expiration date is the 28th of February of the year in which the bond is purchased.
For bonds purchased after February 28th, the expiration date is February 28th of the following year.
An active, current surety bond must always be kept on file as a condition of qualifying for heating work in Massillon.
