HVAC Inspections 

Please be aware that only a licensed (and registered with the City of Galveston) HVAC professional is allowed to pull permits & call for inspections. 

Below is a list of inspections for HVAC Permits. Not all inspections listed are required on every job, as every job is different. Please be aware if you are doing a type of work that falls into one of these categories you will need to call for that inspection. It is up to you to know which inspections you will need and when you will need to call for them.
You are responsible for the HVAC inspections you do AND do not call for. 

Inspection requests can be made by phone or email 24-hours a day by calling or emailing that inspector for inspections requested on the following workday.
