COOLING SYSTEM - General Comment
This inspection cannot determine the heating or cooling supply adequacy or distribution balance.
IT IS NOT ADVISABLE NOR IS IT RECOMMENDED THAT A UNIT BE OPERATED UNTIL THE OUTSIDE
TEMPERATURE IS AT LEAST 60 DEGREES FOR A CONSECUTIVE 24 HOUR PERIOD. IT COULD BE BENEFICIAL
TO HAVE A PROFESSIONAL HVAC CHECK BEFORE CLOSING.
The typical life expectancy of a compressor is ten to fifteen years. However many units operate well beyond this time
frame.
The unit should be serviced on an annual basis to maintain peak efficiency.
Any piece of mechanical equipment can fail at any time. It is impossible to determine which component will fail or when;
The condition of the HVAC system is only verifiable at the time of the inspection and no opinion is offered as to the
continued operation. Mechanical devices and structural components may be functional at the time of the inspection and
later malfunction. A full evaluation of the HVAC system requires extensive testing and is beyond the scope of a home

Monitor/Maintain - An item that will require immediate maintenance and should be carefully monitored to avoid larger
problems.

Service/Repair - An item in need of repair or maintenance, the expected cost of which should be at a level less than that

Home inspectors are generalist and are not experts in any specific field, and further evaluations are often needed.
Qualified experts should be chosen carefully, and should be allowed to thoroughly inspect the entire suspect system and
not be limited to specific areas sighted in the home inspection. Throughout this report, the age of the appliances, roofs,
etc. if stated, are approximate. It is not possible to be exact, but an effort is made to be as accurate as possible based
on the visible evidence where accessible. When any item in the report is reported to be "Satisfactory", the meaning is
that it should give generally satisfactory service within the limits of its age and any defects or current problems noted
during the inspection. Please read the information printed on each page and call us for an explanation of any aspect of
the report that you do not fully understand. Once you have settled on the inspected property, please call our office with
any questions related to the home or its maintenance for the time that you own the property. The "Whole House
Inspection" is conducted according to the standards set by The American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) for the
purpose of identifying major deficiencies that might effect your decision whether to purchase. Unfortunately, we cannot
take away all the risks of home ownership. Although Service/Repair items may be mentioned, this report does not
attempt to list them all. It is important for you to understand exactly what your professional inspector is able to do for
you, and what the limitations are in his inspection. The inspection is of readily accessible areas of the building and is
limited to visual observations only. The inspector may not move furniture and personal property or dismantle any
appliances aside from removing covers on heaters, electrical panels etc. An inspection is intended to assist in evaluating
the overall condition of a building and its components based on observations of the apparent condition the date of the
inspection. The results of this home inspection are not intended to make any representation regarding latent or
concealed defects that may exist. Your home inspector is not a licensed structural engineer or other contractor whose
license authorizes the rendering of a technical analysis of the structural integrity of a building or its other component
parts. You may be advised to seek a licensed engineer or contractor's opinion as to any defects or concerns mentioned
in this report. This report is not a guarantee or warranty, expressed or implied. There are warranty programs that may be
obtained to insure you against failure of some of the major systems of the house. These warranties do not, however,
cover all the inspected items included in the report, and you should read the documents provided with these warranty
programs carefully. Home buyers, after occupying the home, sometimes overlook important information and warnings
contained in their reports. This can result in failure of equipment or other damage, which could have been prevented if
the inspector's advise, and recommendations had been followed. It is important for the client to attend the inspection.
The report is a fine tool, but does not replace the opportunity to ask questions directly and every effort should be made
to attend the inspection. After occupancy, all homes will have some defects that may not be identified in the inspection
report. If a problem occurs of which you feel our inspectors' report did not give you sufficient warning, call our office. A
phone consultation may be helpful to you in deciding what corrective measures to take, and the inspector may be able to
advise you in assessing proposals offered by contractors for correcting the problem. Please consult your inspector
before you engage a contractor to examine or correct possible defects. Unless prior consultation occurs, we cannot
assist you further.
