A residential appliance installer is licensed to perform electrical work that is limited to the installation of residential appliances. When your registered home appliance installer leaves employment with your company, you must notify the department and appoint a new registered home appliance installer within thirty business days of the date of separation. Residential appliance installation contractors are licensed to participate in the business of installing residential appliances, including electrical installation and maintenance related to swimming pools. Currently, the Texas Residential Appliance Installer License (often called a RAIL or TRAIL license) is required for all individuals performing pool and spa services that replace or repair electrical pool and spa equipment in Texas.
You must hire a licensed residential appliance installer to apply for a residential appliance installation contractor license.
