Inspector is not an HVAC professional. Feel free to hire one prior to closing. This inspection of the HVAC system is a visual inspection using only the normal operating controls for the system. The inspection of the HVAC system is general and not technically exhaustive. A detailed evaluation of the interior components of the system is beyond the scope of a home inspection. Inspector does not inspect humidifiers or dehumidifiers, the electronic air filter, or determine heating supply adequacy or distribution balance. Inspector does not operate the heating system when the outside air temperature is too hot, to prevent damaging the unit. Inspector does not operate the cooling system when the outside air temperature is too cold, to prevent damaging the unit. It is essential that any recommendation that is made for service, correction, or repair be scheduled prior to closing or purchasing the property, because the hired-professional could reveal defects or recommend further repairs that could affect your evaluation of the property. Note: Health is a deeply personal responsibility. You should have the air quality tested and the ductwork or baseboards cleaned as a prudent investment in environmental hygiene, especially if any family member suffers from allergies or asthma.
Inspector does not test clothes dryers, nor washing machines and their water connections and drainpipes. Inspector can operate them using normal controls, but only as courtesy if the appliances are remaining with the property after closing. If a water catch pan is installed, it is not possible for Inspector to check its performance. Recommend routine cleaning of dryer lint trap and annual inspections of the dryer exhaust pipe.
