Inspecting Electric Forced Air Furnaces


Recommended Posts

I generally recommend that an HVAC pro further evaluate a gas or oil fueled furnace or boiler if the unit appears to not have been recently serviced. (generally - if I don't see a service tag or a receipt dated within a year of my inspection). I feel this protects my clients as well as myself. I rarely see heat pumps or electric furnaces, and don't have any general recommendations for these units. Anyone out there see these on a regular basis and have general recommendations for frequency of service? Or anyone have any SOP's for inspecting these? Thanks.

Remember that old saying - "Be careful what you wish for, you might get it?"

This is a checklist that I adapted from the Carson-Dunlop Essentials of Home Inspection Series, Heating II, using their inspection checklists.

I'll see what I've got for heat pumps.

OT - OF!!!
