THE DEVIL IS IN THE DETAILS. 

EXPERT HVAC INSURANCE INSPECTIONS.

WHAT IS AN HVAC INSURANCE INSPECTION?

An HVAC inspection is an examination of your home's mechanical heating, cooling, and air circulation systems. HVAC inspections are one of the most important things you can have completed as a homeowner. Our expert technicians check to see if your thermostat, furnace, air conditioner, and heat pump and ducts are in functional condition. We will also look at your insulation where it is visible and can check for carbon monoxide or gas leaks.

WHO TYPICALLY NEEDS AN HVAC / INSURANCE INSPECTION? 

  • Homebuyers

  • Home Builders 

  • Real Estate Agents

  • Homeowners whose houses are more than 20+ years old

HOW LONG DOES AN HAVAC INSPECTION TAKE?

 

It generally takes about one and a half to two hours to inspect a 1-3- zone HVAC system in a residential home. The larger the home, the longer an inspection will take. 

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF AN HVAC INSPECTION?

  • Save money on utility bills

  • Avoid Emergency HVAC repair

  • Prolong the lifespan of your system 

  • Purchase a new home with confidence 

PURCHASING OR SELLING A HOME? 

If you’re in the market for a new home, you will undoubtedly have potential houses inspected by a home inspector. But will you have your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system inspected separately?

3 REASONS WHY YOUR HVAC SYSTEM SHOULD BE INSPECTED SEPERATELY 

  • Your heating and cooling system is about half of your energy bill: According to Energy Star, around half of your yearly energy bill goes toward heating and cooling your home. Therefore, you want to make sure the home’s heating and air-conditioning systems are in good working order so you will not spend more than you need to on energy bills. An HVAC inspection will reveal any problems that affect your new home’s energy efficiency.

  • Average home inspections do not include detailed HVAC testing: Home buyers assume that the home inspector has tested their heating and air conditioning equipment. But the home inspector may simply turn on your furnace and air conditioner to make sure they work. Even if the furnace and air conditioner appear to be functioning, there may be an underlying problem that the home inspector cannot see (such as a cracked heat exchanger). HVAC is always one of the most missed problems when it comes to home inspections and buying a new home. Home inspectors don’t have the tools or knowledge to conduct a thorough HVAC inspection. HVAC systems, like cars, can work even if there are major problems.

  • Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning require the most expensive appliances in your home: Buying a home is a major investment. And it’s one that comes with plenty of expenses, as every homeowner can attest. But one of the biggest investments within your home is the heating and air conditioning system. A new furnace and air conditioner can cost in the thousands while other appliances (like your oven and refrigerator) are much less costly. So it makes sense to get your HVAC system checked out ahead of time to know what you’re getting into.

COST OF AN HVAC INSPECTION

The cost of HVAC inspection ranges from contractor to contractor. The cost of HVAC inspection averages $321. On the high end, an inspection may run you as much as $475; if your home is under 1,000 square feet, you could pay as little as $200 for an inspection. Be sure to verify the cost of HVAC inspection with your chosen contractor before the inspection begins, as prices do vary between providers.
