Elements of Inspection


Heating and cooling systems help maintain an even, comfortable temperature in the home throughout the changing seasons. They also circulate air throughout the house and refresh the air supply. These systems also can add or subtract moisture from the air, depending on the equipment and season, and filter the air as well.

Testing of the furnace and air conditioner is done to determine proper operation, physical condition and presence of adequate air flow. An air temperature drop test is performed on AC units. We will date the systems and provide average life expectancies for the various systems.


  • Furnace: Proper and safe operation (includes gas leaks and carbon monoxide detection), excessive rust, scale, condition of filter.
  • Air conditioner condenser: Safe and proper operation using normal operating controls.
  • Ductwork: Proper connections/insulation, airflow.
