Automatic Safety Controls
Automatic safety controls are those devices installed as a part of your electrical, heating, cooling, water heating and other systems to prevent such things as overheating, high and low pressures, excessively hot water or a surge in electrical current. An example of an automatic safety control is the temperature and pressure valve on your water heater.
Since automatic safety controls are important to keeping your family and your home safe, it's essential that they be installed and operate correctly. The home inspector will inspect all of these devices to determine that valves aren't clogged, wires are connected correctly and functional when and where needed.
