The average home inspection does not include thorough HVAC testing: Home inspectors are not HVAC specialists and can typically only provide a rudimentary evaluation of the system. For this reason, HVAC problems are some of the most frequently missed issues in a home inspection.

HVAC systems account for about half of a home's energy bill: By certifying that systems are well maintained and working efficiently, agents can offer buyers a better return on their investment and lower utility bills for years to come.

HVAC systems are some of the most expensive equipment in a home: Without an expert inspection of a home's HVAC system, hidden problems missed by the home inspector can lead to costly repairs or even require a full replacement of the system. As one of the biggest investments in a home, it is crucial that potential buyers know HVAC systems are in good condition.

Inspection issues often kill deals: Agents know from experience that it doesn't take much to scare off a potential buyer. Anything from off-putting odors to overly-personalized decor can be enough to keep a good house from selling. As such, it is imperative that home owners have their HVAC systems thoroughly evaluated ahead of time to ensure that home inspections run smoothly.
