The Real Value Of An HVAC Inspection Is To Prevent Future Issues
Are you considering buying a new home? Before you sign the contract, you’ll probably schedule a home inspection. After all, this is one of the largest purchases you’ll ever make and you want to be sure there’s nothing structurally wrong with the home. At the same time, you should also schedule an inspection of the home’s HVAC system. Most typical home inspectors don’t have the technical expertise to effectively inspect the HVAC system. It is always better to hire a professional who is trained in these types of systems and can perform a thorough inspection. The value of an HVAC inspection is that it can uncover problems that could cost a lot of money in repairs later on.
When a regular home inspector does the inspection, they will usually turn on the climate system to ensure it’s working. They will check for both heat and air conditioning, but will often insert a disclaimer into their inspection report stating they don’t have the expertise to officially inspect the HVAC system. Most potential homeowners will read the report and assume there is no problem with the climate control system.
The problem is that without a professional inspection of the HVAC system, there is no way to identify potential problems. There could be safety issues such as a cracked heat exchanger or the system has a faulty compressor which will require the entire air conditioning unit to be replaced.
AC Inspection Experts
Experts in the home warranty industry tell us that HVAC systems make up almost half of all the claims they pay. The HVAC system is one of the most under-inspected items during a home inspection. The home inspector may only check the part of the system that is appropriate for the current climate. This means they may check the heat in the winter and the A/C in the summer, but not both at the same time.
Hiring a professional HVAC technician like Muccia AC Company to inspect the HVAC system on a home you are buying is really an investment. It costs more, but the value of the HVAC inspection makes it worth the extra money. This system is one of the most expensive in the home and one of the most expensive to repair.
An HVAC system inspection can also help reduce your energy costs. In the typical family home, about half of the monthly utility costs will be for cooling or heating the home. An inspection of the HVAC system will help ensure it is running at peak efficiency.
Even if you’re not buying a new home, it’s a good idea to have your HVAC system inspected on a regular basis. An inspection performed by a trained HVAC specialist will alert you to any potential problems and help keep your system operating efficiently. If the inspector finds anything wrong, you can make repairs before they cause additional damage which could cost you a lot more to fix.
Your home is one of your most expensive assets. It only makes sense to keep all systems in great shape.
