Furnace Safety Inspection

Furnace Inspection in Minneapolis

Are You Thinking of Selling Your St. Paul Home?

Before showing your property to prospective buyers, call us to schedule a Home Sale Furnace Inspection. A furnace inspection may be required by the home inspector when selling a home, changing ownership, or when applying and renewing a rental property license. Most cities in the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area require a heating system capable of providing heat at 68 degrees five feet above the floor in any livable area of the home or dwelling. Installation, repair, or alteration of heating equipment must be performed by a licensed contractor approved by the city and state.

During a furnace inspection, our NATE-certified technician will check the proper operation of your heating system, ensuring that your furnace is safe and up to code. Our thorough process of examination has been recognized by multiple cities, and we are licensed to serve the entire 7 county metro area.

Call Standard Heating & Air Conditioning today at (612) 324-1015 or schedule an appointment online for your home sale furnace inspection.

Requirements by City


Depending on your home’s location, a home sale furnace inspection might have a different name. Learn more about how your city calls it:

  • Minneapolis: The city of Minneapolis requires a Truth-in-Sale Housing (TISH) evaluation for any sale of a single-family house, duplex, townhouse, or first-time condo conversion.
  • St. Paul: The city of St. Paul requires all existing buildings, with the exception of owner-occupied single family houses and owner-occupied duplexes, to have and maintain a Fire Certificate of Occupancy.
  • Bloomington: The city of Bloomington requires an inspection and a Time-of-Sale Housing Inspection report for all single and two-family dwellings, condominiums, townhouses and mobile homes offered for sale. (Multi-family rental buildings of 4 or more units are not included). They call it the Time-of-Sale Housing Inspection.
  • Richfield: The city of Richfield requires an HVAC certification done by a licensed journeyman/master heating installer to ensure the system’s consistency with the code enforcement standards applicable. The visual inspection and examination is required for Point of Sale and Rental License.

What Problems / Potential Dangers Can a Furnace Safety Inspection Reveal?

A furnace safety inspection can uncover a range of potential problems and hazards, including:

  • Gas Leaks: Inspections can identify any leaks in the gas line or in the furnace itself. Gas leaks are highly dangerous and need immediate attention.
  • Carbon Monoxide Leaks: Furnaces that burn fuel can produce carbon monoxide. A safety inspection checks for any signs of a leak, as carbon monoxide is odorless and can be lethal.
  • Cracked Heat Exchanger: A cracked heat exchanger can lead to carbon monoxide leaks. It's a critical issue that requires immediate repair or replacement.
  • Dirty or Clogged Burner: This can lead to inefficient combustion, causing higher energy bills and potential safety hazards.
  • Faulty Pilot Light or Ignition System: If the pilot light is not functioning correctly, it may result in improper heating or even a complete shutdown.
  • Blocked Ventilation System: A blocked flue or ventilation system can lead to the accumulation of harmful gases and reduced airflow.
  • Electrical Issues: Inspections can identify any faulty wiring or electrical components that may pose a fire hazard.
  • Improperly Sized Ductwork: Incorrectly sized ducts can lead to uneven heating, reduced efficiency, and potential damage to the furnace.
  • Airflow Issues: An inspection can reveal any obstructions or inefficiencies in the airflow system, which can lead to poor heating performance.
  • Safety Switch Malfunctions: Safety switches are designed to shut down the furnace in the event of a problem. If they're not functioning correctly, it can pose a safety risk.

Regular furnace safety inspections are crucial for identifying and rectifying these issues, ensuring the system operates efficiently and safely, and providing peace of mind for homeowners.
