Are Maintenance Letters on HVAC Important when you purchase a home?
You’ve searched long and hard for your dream home and you are ready to make the biggest purchase of your life. It has everything you want and everything seems to be fine. The Home Inspector looks your home over to make sure there aren’t any major problems. He will probably check for pest, mold, damage to the roof, electrical wiring, bad water drains, termites and structural issues. He might even look at the Heating and Air Conditioning System. But is he really qualified to make sure the system is operating properly? Unless the Home Inspector is a qualified HVAC professional, it is doubtful he will be able to verify that the system functions properly and does not require repairs.
A Heating and Air Conditioning system is one of the most expensive items you will have to replace in your home so why not have a qualified HVAC professional inspect your system before you buy. You can require the seller to provide a clean heating and air conditioning letter as a condition of the sale. This letter states that the HJVAC has been inspected by a professional and is in good shape. The HVAC professional inspects the heating, ventilation and air conditioning system to make sure all parts work effectively and that the system is clean. An HVAC inspection normally costs $100 – $250 but in the long run, it is well worth it for peace of mind.
