Furnace install, trust but verify inspection. Desert Sun Inspections.
When the sellers of this home was in the process of having the furnace replaced. They called and had a reputable company come in and do the new furnace install.
This should have been the best way to go right?
Just because you think you are using a reputable company doe's not mean that they are going to install a furnace or any other appliance the right way.
Take for instance the furnace install. There seems to be an issue. The home owner thought they had the perfect company and did get a perfect installation.
But when it get's inspected by Desert Sun Inspections. We have an issue with the installation.
Take a look at what I saw when inspecting this furnace.
Every thing looks to be correct with the new furnace.
But there is no drip leg or what we like to call "Sediment trap" in the gas supply for the furnace. This is required by code. If you look at the water heater that was installed just six months prior, it too is missing the sediment trap.
But wait there was another water heater installed at the same time. This home has one furnace and Two water heaters. Take a look at the second water heater.
This water heater has a couple of issues. There is no sediment trap and the cut off is too far back in the closet to have an easy access.
None of the Three appliances that were installed had a
"APPROVED STICKER" this means there was never a permit pulled for the installation of the furnace or the water heaters.
The owner pulled the paper work for the installs and low and behold there was a charge for the permits on the billing sheets.
No wonder the home owner said that the city mechanical inspector was never at the home to inspect anything.
This is why you always get a "Trust but verify Inspection" by a certified inspector. For the peace of mind.
