HVAC Home Inspectors
On Your Side Inspections will conduct a comprehensive inspection of all components related to the heating, ventilating, and air conditioning system (HVAC). The following is a list of inspection criteria that our certified home inspector will conduct during an HVAC inspection.
What We Will Check During a Gainesville HVAC Inspection
- 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.
- Estimate the size of the system, usually measured in “tons”. Typical is 2–4 tons of cooling.
- Determine the age of the system. Typical life expectancy is 15–20 years.
- Determine the location of all major components. Air handler, condenser (outdoor unit), filters, bleach ports, etc.
- Measure the temperature output at all registers throughout the home, typically in cooling mode.
- Inspect all readily accessible ductwork.
- Inspect the “A” coil. This is located in the air handler and is a critical component for an efficient system.
- Measure the output temperature in heating mode.
- Instruct the client on operation and proper maintenance of the system.
- Give rough estimates for system repair or replacement.
