Top Benefits of HVAC Inspection
HVAC inspectors conduct comprehensive examinations of components and systems to determine whether they are contaminated with a significant accumulation of particulate or microbial growth, or if HVAC performance is compromised due to contamination build-up.
The role of an HVAC inspector is to assess the cleanliness and structural integrity of an HVAC system. Inspectors search for obstructions, excess moisture and microbial contamination in the HVAC system.
NADCA offers a certification geared toward HVAC inspectors, called the Certified Ventilation Inspector (CVI) program. CVI-certified personnel have received training based on the EPA’s structured method of performing inspections, which is also in compliance with NADCA’s standard. The training covers applicable building and IAQ standards and codes, maintenance and housekeeping programs, diagnosing IAQ problems and reporting findings to building owners.
