An HVAC inspection involves a thorough test and review of a heating, ventilation and air conditioning system. Our HVAC inspectors perform the inspection to find out how your heating and cooling equipment is performing. After the inspection, they provide you with a report of their findings and any recommendations for repairs. So, is an annual inspection necessary? What are the benefits and what does it entail?

They also caution in their warranties that damage to the HVAC units due to improper maintenance is not covered.
