Natural Gas Safety Inspection
Put your mind at ease by scheduling a Gas Safety Inspection in conjunction with your home or building inspection. The inspection of furnace heat exchangers and pressure testing of the natural gas fuel lines inside your home is outside the scope of a home inspection and beyond the capability of home inspectors.
Having gas appliances and systems checked for leaks, pressure testing gas piping, and testing heat exchangers prior to the purchase of the home can save money and provide additional peace of mind. The natural gas appliances and gas lines in our home create a potential hazard because of the explosive nature of gas and the mechanical components the gas serves. A gas safety inspection ensures that these appliances are working properly at the time of the inspection and in compliance with national fuel code and your local municipality.
This type of inspection used to only be performed by Laclede Gas Company, which is now known as Spire. Now, most are performed by local licensed HVAC/Mechanical Contractors. Here at Brewer, we subcontract all of the gas safety inspections we schedule to a top notch licensed mechanical contractor. The technicians that perform the gas safety inspections are insured and have experience in repairing and servicing gas lines, gas heating systems and more; now they can provide you with the thorough inspection you need when it comes time to sell or buy a home.
House Sale Gas Inspections that are performed by our licensed HVAC Sub-contractor typically include a thorough inspection on the gas appliances, gas lines, and heating and cooling systems and provide you with a pass/fail report.
