Checking the airflow and temperatures at each register will help to regulate and create better heating and cooling zones.
Does your inspector test for gas leaks. Health & safety
Combustion testing is used to test for gas fired, oil fired appliances for efficiency and flue drafting.
All inspections should include testing gas fired appliances.What is the efficiency of your gas fired appliance?
Gas / oil fired equipment testing
Commercial Kitchen Inspections
We inspect many restaurants and inspect all equipment as well. For many years I built , installed and serviced commercial refrigeration equipment. Now I’m teaching my wife.
Checking the temperatures on refrigeration equipment and gas fired cooking ovens, stoves will help your clients.
Temperature Oven Checks
We find commercial oven temperatures almost always off by several degrees to 100 degrees.
Building pressure testing
Pressure testing will always determine if the exhaust system is to much or to little. It will also tell us many things about your duct system.
Always check your clients electrical panels
Taking an amp draw on electrical devices is important to determine if that device is operating within spects.
Electrical motor testing
Carbon dioxide testing
Carbon dioxide maybe good for trees and grass however not so good for people. Depending on where you live the levels of CO2 maybe higher than you thank. High levels will cause headaches, dizziness and even death.
Very few people think about testing for formaldehyde. Read up on formaldehyde. It can make you sick and even cause cancer.
We utilize top of the line radon testing equipment. Many areas of the country has high levels of radon. Oregon is one of those areas. 48 hour turn around for test results.
Some of our testing tools we use for building inspections. Common tools are moisture meter, thermal camera and tablet. However does your inspector go beyond the normal paramatories to help keep you safe. We test for gas leaks, radon levels, formaldehyde levels, CO, CO2 levels. Does your inspector provide testing? Testing a building will help conclude the condition of a building. For example: The buyer is purchasing a building with several HVAC “RTUs” roof top units that heat with gas. We utilize a combustion analyzer to test for efficiency and proper operation. Sometimes we find cracked heat exchangers during these tests. Very dangerous. Sometimes we find burners clogged, yellow flames. Just wasting gas!
Refrigeration equipment. On one of our inspections the client had 18 pieces of different types of refrigeration equipment. We found four of them not operational. Our point is always have your inspector test all mechanical gas or electrical equipment.
