South Jersey HVAC Equipment Inspection
If you’re buying your dream home, one thing you should include on your checklist is to have the HVAC Equipment Inspection completed by a licensed technician. Home inspectors will generally only look at your system for code violations, and not for the functionality of the system. Most home inspectors will recommend you call a licensed HVAC technician to perform equipment inspections.
The purpose of the inspection is to ensure that the Heater, Air Conditioner, and Indoor Air Quality systems are installed to meet codes and standards, and are operating safely, and efficiently.
Why it’s important
It will come as no surprise to you to learn that most people don’t maintain their home HVAC systems the way the manufacturer intends them to do so. Lack of maintenance, or even self-maintenance, can mean compromising the safety and integrity of the home’s system. This is why it’s important to have a qualified, licensed HVAC technician go through your system. The National Association of Realtors recommends having your home inspected to catch any issues that may require attention or monitoring.
Sometimes, through no fault of the sellers, HVAC equipment can become dangerous due to age or regular use. We inspect the system to find common issues with old equipment, such as damaged chimneys, deteriorating heat exchangers, compromised electrical systems, and more. We provide you a detailed report of our findings so that you can approach the seller, and have them perform repairs that are necessary. In some cases, we can provide the buyer with a free estimate on the cost to upgrade the equipment to newer, high-efficient equipment, that they may be able to negotiate a compromise at the closing table.
With our detailed report, you as the buyer have the information you need to go forward with the purchase of your dream home. Whether it’s the knowledge that all systems are operational, and up to code. Or that the system requires attention. In many cases, systems that require attention, are taken care of by the seller. You also will have a better understanding of how old the equipment is, and when you should begin to plan for the replacement.
We will schedule your HVAC Equipment Inspection to best fit with your schedule and the schedule of your home’s other inspections. Inspections usually take between 1 and 3 hours, depending on the complexity and age of the equipment. We price inspections as a flat rate per zone so that you know what you’re paying before we schedule. Call today to schedule your dream home’s HVAC Equipment Inspection today!
