As of January 1, 1986, a person may not perform or offer to perform air conditioning and refrigeration work (covered under state law) unless the person holds an appropriate license issued or recognized under Chapter 1302 of the Texas Occupations Code. Consequently, all air conditioning and refrigeration contractors must be licensed by the State or hold a municipal/regional air conditioning and refrigeration license recognized by the State. Effective September 1, 2011, the Department adopted the 2009 Uniform Mechanical Code and/or the 2009 International Mechanical Code as the state code. Contact municipalities directly for any code updates/amendments specific to their jurisdiction.
The following list was compiled with information and assistance from the local jurisdictions. It is intended as a quick online reference for the local air conditioning and refrigeration code requirements and other municipal licensing/registration requirements that may be required of air conditioning and refrigeration contractors in addition to the state requirements.
