Common Heating and Furnace Issues

Most houses in Chatham-Kent are heated by gas furnaces or boilers. During an inspection, I will run the furnace to make sure it cycles properly. I will inspect the filter and heat exchanger of the furnace, as well as determine the size and age of the furnace, if possible. The ductwork will be inspected and I will make sure every room has a heat source. As I am inspecting the furnace, I will instruct you on how it should operate and how to maintain your furnace, humidifier and HRV, if present.

Did you know that most boilers require an annual inspection by a licensed natural gas technician (TSSA certified)?

I will inspect chimneys for safety and compliance, as well as natural gas lines. If a house has baseboard electrical heaters, I will make sure they function.
