Mechanical Permit

These types of projects require a Mechanical Permit:

  • Any new construction
  • Installing new mechanical equipment (e.g. new air conditioner, heat pump, furnace, etc.)

    *Exception: when replacing a like for like electric heat pump, permits are not required.
  • Installing or replacing any flue or new vent associated with mechanical equipment
  • Replacing any furnace, hydronic piping (hot water piping), or its associated ductwork
  • Replacing an existing furnace with one that utilizes a different fuel

    *Note: A chimney reline requires a building permit, not a mechanical permit. If the mechanical work involves gas, a gas permit will also be required. If the mechanical work involves electrical work, an electrical permit will also be required.
