02 Jul The Advantages of Choosing to Have an HVAC Inspection Prior to Making an Offer on a House
When you’re thinking about purchasing a home in the San Antonio area, an HVAC system inspection is vital in addition to the systematic home inspection before proposing an offer. The exhaustive HVAC inspection will be important for the older homes, due to the debatable history of the cooling and heating systems. Assuring that the system has been set up correctly as well as meet the requirements under the warranty, a thorough inspection of new homes is just as important.
The HVAC System Inspection Is Very Important
With a regular inspection of a house, the contractor just assesses the home’s general condition. Though the HVAC system is given a quick check, there isn’t a thorough inspection. Common issues with the system can be easily overlooked. This simple check may overlook common system problems like cracked heat exchangers or carbon monoxide levels that are too high.
With complete inspections, you can see possible future repairs, how old the HVAC system is and the projected life of the system. You can utilize this information before finalizing the deal as a resource to adjust your off on the home if necessary or ask for the seller to replace or repair the system.
Procedures of an HVAC Inspection
To assure the safety and condition of the system, an HVAC contractor will thoroughly inspect the system. During the inspection, the service provider is looking for any signs that point to a poor upkeep of the maintenance. This could be anything from clogged air filters and frayed belts to more detrimental issues like inoperable safety systems and refrigerant leaks. If your inspector doesn’t see these issues until after closing then you unfortunately have no recourse and have to pay the repairs yourself.
