Water Heater Inspection

At one time hot water on demand may have been considered a luxury, but today’s home buyers expect it. But there’s nothing about a water heaters that home owners should take for granted.

Our certified home inspectors are familiar with the parts of a gas water heater and know what to look for as we inspect it.

The inspector will come into your home and look over the following areas of the water heater:

  1. Look at the tank for any signs of corrosion or blackened areas near the burner.
  2. View the piping connected to the water heater for any signs of corrosion.
  3. Test the gas valve
  4. View the vent stack for proper rise.
  5. Ensure the draft hood should not be loose
  6. Test the water heater
  7. Ensure the correct hot and cold pipes are connected to the right source
  8. Electrical connections

Our inspector will provide a detailed and thorough report of their findings along with pictures and will have the report available in 24 hours after the inspection.
