Notice: Boiler Licensing for a Residence
Recent amendments to the boiler law have resulted in a long awaited change. The boiler law no longer regulates licensing of individuals who install or repair boilers in a private residence or apartment building with less than 6 families. By default, the licensing of individuals doing boiler installation or repairs in these locations falls to the State of Michigan Mechanical Division. You may refer to the Forbes Mechanical Contractors Act, section 338.977 Sec.7.(1) of PA 1992 of 1984, by linking below.
