Are You Thinking of Selling Your House?
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 us today or schedule an appointment for your home sale furnace inspection.
