Heat and Air Conditioning (HVAC) is the installation, restoration, servicing, and repair of air conditioning. It also includes heating (watch the video below for more content on this topic). Inspectors are responsible for inspecting the electrical and mechanical systems to determine whether they are in good repair, safe for use in the building, and operating efficiently.
A building’s heating and air conditioning system is one of the most critical systems in a structure. Without heating or cooling, a building will not be able to maintain a constant temperature and will not feel comfortable.
The inspectors are responsible for determining if the controls are up to date. If the system is working correctly, or if there is any malfunctioning equipment or wiring, the homeowner is notified. Inspectors may also check for cleanliness and vermin-free conditions.
Inspectors must be very familiar with HVAC inspections and building codes for the areas they inspect and be able to interpret these codes to determine if a plan complies with current building codes. Effective communication with the building management staff members is essential to perform checks at all levels of the facility’s operation. For more details on this topic, contact home!
