Cooling and Air Handler Equipment
Cooling and air handler equipment includes your central air conditioning system as well as any electronic air filter or whole-house humidifying system attached to your furnace. These systems also include the duct work that connect the central unit to the individual vents in your living space and the thermostat that regulates the temperature.
The home inspector will check these systems to make sure that they are functioning properly. In addition, he will check the connections to the power source, that the air conditioning condenser is unobstructed and that the ducts are properly sealed. It's also important to make sure that no condensation from the air conditioning system is finding its way back into the house, potentially causing mold and mildew problems.
