HVAC Safety Inspection for Homebuyers
August 1, 2022 | Cooling, Heating, Homeowner Tips
To any homebuyer, a home inspection is essential to understanding the quality of a home and its current condition. Having an HVAC inspection by a trained professional can help you make your home-buying decisions and determine the system’s current state, which will impact the overall livability of the home. General home inspections are helpful, but calling a professional service, like Mattex, can save you both time and money in the long run. The knowledge that our HVAC technicians provide can offer you a thorough understanding of your system’s future and help avoid potential problems.
What Happens During the Inspection?
Safety inspections may include the evaluation of an HVAC system’s age, component cleanliness, and the condition and function of the system. Depending on the condition of the system, the home’s value can be affected. A less than satisfactory HVAC system could be used to negotiate in the buying process. An inspector can give you an accurate representation of the state of your HVAC system and the timeline of how long it can be used before it needs to be replaced. An older system may need to be replaced soon, especially if it hasn’t been properly maintained. An inspection may even extend the life of your system allowing potential problems to be caught early.
Why an HVAC inspection and not just a general inspection?
A general inspection is a great step to make before purchasing a home. One major reason why a general inspection isn’t enough is that a home inspector will make sure the HVAC system works but won’t have the specific knowledge to tell you the lifespan of your system. The cleanliness, age, and previous maintenance is important to extending the life of your system. A trained HVAC inspector will be able to find the warning signs associated with an end-of-life system can include but is not limited to mechanical wear and tear, dirty filters, and dirty condenser or evaporator coils.
