Have you recently purchased a home or are you thinking about buying one soon? Making sure your HVAC system works correctly not only gives you peace of mind but will also help you avoid costly problems in the future.
Many homebuyers assume their home inspection includes a thorough review of the HVAC system. However, this is usually not the case. While home inspectors will check to make sure the heating and air conditioning turn on, they typically don’t look for underlying problems. Unfortunately, there are many potential issues that won’t show up during an inspection. Left untreated, these could lead to major problems down the line.
You can protect yourself from high repair bills in the future by having your system professionally inspected now. AC Warehouse offers complete New Homeowner HVAC Inspections. Here’s what you can expect.
