Why You Should Get a HVAC Inspection for Home Purchase Separately from a Home Inspection

Buying a new home is an exciting time with lots to do between the time you enter into a purchase agreement until your closing date arrives. Because this purchase is likely to be one of the biggest investments of your life, you will want to make sure that everything is up to par by having a home inspection. But did you know that you should also have a separate inspection of the home’s heating, air conditioning and ventilation system?

Why Should You Have a Separate HVAC Inspection for Home Purchase?

Every homebuyer knows how important a home inspection is for alerting you to any existing or potential problems with the home you are purchasing. But the average home inspection will not include a comprehensive HVAC inspection. Basically, a home inspector will only turn on the furnace and air conditioner to make sure they work. However, this is often not enough to ensure you get a detailed picture of its overall condition.

When it comes to home inspections, problems with HVAC systems are often missed during a typical home inspection. While the furnace and air conditioner may appear to be in good working order, there could be underlying problems that only a professional HVAC inspector could catch during a thorough inspection.

Replacing an HVAC System Can Be Costly

There are plenty of expenses that arise when you purchase a home. The last thing you need is the unexpected and unpleasant surprise of having to replace a furnace or air conditioner. Both are major appliances that, unlike a refrigerator or dishwasher, could cost thousands of dollars.

Keeping Heating and Cooling Costs in Check

An HVAC inspection will let you know whether the home’s HVAC system is in good working order. A system that is not in good working order can mean higher bills to keep your home warm or cool. So you will want to make sure that your system is working properly by having it checked out by an HVAC professional.

HVAC Inspection for Home Purchase, A Wise Investment

In comparison, the cost of an HVAC inspection is much less expensive than replacing or having to have major repairs made to a furnace or air conditioner soon after buying your new home. Spending money on a HVAC inspection is a wise investment that can save you money and prevent you from unknowingly purchasing a home with heating and cooling problems.

Protect yourself from making a bad investment or losing an opportunity to negotiate a better price when purchasing a home. Contact the heating and cooling experts at Snyder Heating & Air Conditioning to schedule a complete inspection of your prospective home’s heating and cooling system before you finalize the purchase.

Customer Reviews

This was an exceptional experience! We woke up to our A/C on but not cooling (it was 6am and already 81 in the house). The person who set up our appointment was very nice, able to get us seen same-day, and let us know of some options to help save us money.

-Christy Cormier

The service from Sam and Chris was excellent! They were very knowledgeable and professional. They were able to answer all of my questions and completed all of my electrical issues. I will definitely use them again for future jobs. Thank you!

-Adrienne Beal

From the get go I could tell that the Snyder employees were truly professionals and didn’t push to make sales like other companies I’ve talked to my whole life. They took the time to explain so that I could make a decision. The installers and later the duct cleaners were very respectful during their work here. Thank you.

-Mike Daniels

Snyder Heating and AC is dependable, always on time and techs have always been courteous and knowledgeable. Emanuel was a great addition to the company. He was friendly and knew what he was doing. Thank you for great service.

-Linda Ackley

Snyder came in and did a total overhaul of our duct system. They had a great knowledge of what to do to make our home so comfortable! The technicians were all so professional and took great care of us! We’re so thankful for their expertise. Great and easy communication with the call center. We will definitely use them again!

-Crystal Hill

Snyder provided an amazing experience from start to finish. Most of us dread getting estimates with pressuring salespeople. Erik was a great guy, explained all my options and didn’t try to pressure me to act quickly! Justin followed up with my husband and I to offer further assistance in our decision. Again, no pressure, just helped with our follow up questions.

-Michele Bauer

Very prompt, professional, courteous, and cleaned up after repair. Had water line break in my front yard and no pressure. Very pleased and would highly recommend Snyder for all your plumbing, and AC needs. Thank you for making a rough morning get better with ease and professionalism.

-Chuck Jr.

Snyder was easy to get in contact with and had availability the next day. Clint came out and needed some parts so had to reschedule us for the next day for installation. He did a great job converting our old 3 knob shower to one. Looks great! Professional and courteous. 100% recommend this company, especially Clint.
