The City of Houston requires an annual inspection and fee for any boiler that is used to heat a building or for commercial processing. (Boilers that are exclusively used for producing domestic hot water are exempt from this requirement.) A City inspector will perform an annual general review of the boiler installation, and he or she will verify that appropriate operator licenses are posted. These licenses must be displayed, all fees must be current, and the boiler and its appurtenances must be kept in safe condition in order to receive an "approved" inspection result.
All licenses must be displayed and the boiler and its appurtenances kept in safe condition in order to receive an "approved" inspection result. The inspector will also check to ensure that all fees are current before the annual inspection is approved. Please note that boilers that are exclusively used for producing domestic (potable) hot water are exempt from these requirements.
Invoices are mailed 30-90 days prior to the renewal date. Payments can be made by check, cashier's check, money order, or credit card.
