What We Will Check During a Gainesville HVAC Inspection

  1. Measure the temperature difference at the air handler. A temperature difference of less than 15 degrees may indicate the system is not operating efficiently and should be evaluated by a qualified HVAC contractor.
  2. Estimate the size of the system, usually measured in “tons”. Typical is 2–4 tons of cooling.
  3. Determine the age of the system. Typical life expectancy is 15–20 years.
  4. Determine the location of all major components. Air handler, condenser (outdoor unit), filters, bleach ports, etc.
  5. Measure the temperature output at all registers throughout the home, typically in cooling mode.
  6. Inspect all readily accessible ductwork.
  7. Inspect the “A” coil. This is located in the air handler and is a critical component for an efficient system.
  8. Measure the output temperature in heating mode.
  9. Instruct the client on operation and proper maintenance of the system.
  10. Give rough estimates for system repair or replacement.
