How do I prepare for a furnace inspection?
Being prepared for your furnace inspection is essential if the inspection is to go smoothly. Here is a brief checklist to help you with your preparation.
- Furnace accessibility: Scan its position, source of energy, and heating procedure. Moreover, be sure that there is easy accessibility to your unit.
- Type of furnace: Review your furnace type (Category). Some of the more common home furnace types are I and IV, respectively.
- Ventilation: Scan the exterior of your vent exhaust system. By checking the surfaces in this way, you can clearly detect any issues such as ruptures, water corrosion, or other damages.
How to Prepare for an HVAC Repair and Inspection?
There are a few basic HVAC inspection best practices to adhere to; they are:
- Clean dust and grime from the unit’s exterior: Ensure your unit’s exterior is clean and that the unit is accessible. The exterior must be secure for the technician while they work on your system. Moreover, this helps them get the job done faster than they could have done otherwise.
- Ensure the vent and unit areas are clear: The AC specialist might require access to the vents based on your specific problem. If such is the case, you’ll want to ensure the surrounding area is clear. Clear any loose material or objects surrounding the vents. And if necessary, move any furniture so it doesn’t block or constrict airflow.
- Decide (ahead of time) what to do with pets: If you’re a pet owner, ensure you make a plan for your furry friends, so they don’t become a nuisance. The AC specialist will require access to many places in and out of your home; even friendly pets can get in the way and unintentionally create problems.
- Ensure you’re at home during the scheduled times: It might be appealing to make a corner store trip while waiting for your AC specialist to arrive; don’t. You must ensure you’re at home for the scheduled, agreed-upon time. If you take off (even if it’s a quick trip), it may result in scheduling problems for the remainder of the day. Please respect the AC technicians and their company’s time.
