There are a few things that everybody should be aware of prior to beginning a heating inspection. You need to know exactly what you’re looking for to properly determine a heating system’s condition and what steps need to be taken to improve it.
There are standards and regulations for a heating inspection.
Firstly, inspectors will look at the heating system, utilizing normal operating controls. Afterward, they will describe the location of the thermostat for the heating system, the energy source, and the heating method. If the heating system doesn’t operate or if it is deemed inaccessible, the inspector will report that corrections are needed.
Depending on where in the country you are living, you will likely need to inspect different types of heating systems. You could be evaluating the working condition of a boiler, a furnace, or a heat pump. Inspectors should be aware of what to look for depending on the system that they are dealing with.
Prior to inspecting the actual furnace or boiler, you will find the thermostat and perform a visual inspection to ensure that it is working as it should and that it can be worked on with the access that you have.
