I am getting ready to apply for a low interest energy conservation loan from the state for a new furnace.
0% - 3% interest.
They will report my ontime payments to the CA's. But they mentioned a "mechanics lien" somewhat like
a second mortgage. I understand the state trying to cover themselves.
I just had an IRS tax lien completely removed from my CR's, thanks to the information I obtained from these
My concern is the Public Record on my CR. The jump in my score from removing the IRS lien wasn't a huge
jump, just not having it show up is a bonus.
Will this type of mechanics lien be detrimental?

The mechanics lien would only be recorded against the deed of the house to ensure that they get paid if the property is sold / transferred. It would not reflect on your credit report and is not a public record in the sense of credit reporting. It would be available as a record to anyone doing a search on the property though.
And of course if you were to default on the loan it would be a negative report. But the loan SHOULD report as an installment (I am assuming fixed monthly payments) and result in a positive trade line when all is done.
