Contrary to popular belief, a home inspection does not necessarily equal a quality HVAC inspection. Many homeowners, especially new homeowners, believe that when they get an all-clear from their home inspection, that means that every part of the home, including the HVAC system, is running smoothly. Home inspections do check the basic function of an HVAC system but this is not enough to spot the problems that could eventually accumulate and affect the performance of your system.
When you have preventative maintenance done, you can have an HVAC inspection done along with it. This is a good idea to make sure that your HVAC system is not only functioning smoothly but performing at its best capacity.
What is an HVAC Inspection?
An HVAC inspection allows homeowners to know if their HVAC system isn’t performing the way it should and might need repairs. A thorough HVAC inspection tests all the heating and cooling equipment in your home to ensure that it’s running properly. Even if you haven’t noticed any problems in the function of your HVAC system, an expert heating and cooling technician might. They can also decipher why your HVAC system is making that strange noise or why a room isn’t receiving as much cooling as it should.
At the end of the inspection, they offer a completed report of all their findings and may recommend repairs or updates to the system in order to help it run at peak function and energy performance. Once you’ve read the report, feel free to ask questions about to clarify any of the points made.
Benefits of an HVAC Inspection
The most obvious benefit of an HVAC inspection is an expert’s eye to ensure that your home’s heating and cooling is performing smoothly. If you live in areas that can be quite hot in the summer, like Bryan-College Station, or quite cold in the winter, having a functional HVAC system is an absolute necessity. An HVAC inspection is like a doctor’s checkup for your HVAC system. If it’s in good health, you can have the confidence of knowing you’ll be comfortable in your home all year round. If there’s an issue, you can have it addressed quickly.
HVAC inspections also help to improve the energy efficiency of your system. It may be that your HVAC system keeps your home warm in winter and cool in summer, but you have to turn it up too far in order to achieve that comfort. This can lead to uncomfortable utility bills to say the least. With an HVAC inspection, a tech will be able to tell you what might be hindering your HVAC system and how it can be fixed so you can continue to enjoy a comfortable home but put less strain on your energy bills. An HVAC tech can also tell you if your system is outdated or simply past its prime and needs an update.
