Why do HVAC contractors and businesses need insurance?

Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) work comes with hefty risks. A worker could hurt their back lifting a unit, or an air conditioner could leak and damage a client's floors. HVAC insurance covers medical bills, legal fees, and repair costs. Some policies, like workers' comp, may be required by law.
