Our HVAC Inspection Focus

As the premier HVAC contractor in all of Sonoma, Marin, and Napa counties, Stout’s HVAC takes enormous pride in our 25 year track record of successful family-owned operation and do everything we can to continue to improve our performance in all areas – including our HVAC inspections. Over the years, we’ve developed a proven, efficient process to cover everything related to your HVAC system during our time on your property to deliver the best possible results in the least possible time.

Our expertly-handled HVAC inspections go far beyond the simple, “is it working” you’ll get from a majority of our competitors and look at three key factors in every area where we investigate. These important factors are:

  • Safety: Our technicians are primarily concerned with your home or business HVAC system’s overall safe performance. There’s nothing more important than your safety to us, so we dig in dep wherever we feel there may be a safety issue and report each and every one of our findings, along with a detailed explanation and recommendation, to you, the customer.
  • Functionality: Our Stout’s professional HVAC technicians will look into whether or not your system is actually functioning as it should. This will require testing of the heating and cooling system to check for uneven zones and noise while in operation. These signs can lead us to whatever is causing the issue and include it in our findings report.
  • Efficiency: Finally, during each inspection our technicians want to be sure that your system is operating efficiently in every room and on every floor. If we notice lagging operation during our inspection, we’ll be certain to double check the system for aging parts and components that could be slowing down the system and costing the customer money.

HVAC Inspection Steps

Depending on the time of year we come to perform our HVAC inspection in Sonoma, Marin, and Napa counties, our process may involve a few different steps to complete, but this information clearly illuminates just how much we take in when conducting an HVAC inspection on your property – be it residential or commercial in nature. Our technicians have 25 years of experience with HVAC systems from all major manufacturers and will quickly and efficiently conclude the necessary steps before delivering our detailed inspection report with our findings.

Let’s take a look at what’s covered in one of our average HVAC inspections and explain a bit about each of the areas we investigate when we reach your property. And, as the systems in place for both commercial and residential are common, but not identical, there may be some steps that differ. Here’s what’s included:

  • Outdoor Air Intake: We’ll check the bird screen (if present) and look for any and all obstructions impeding smooth air flow to the internal system. We’ll also look for any close-by pollutants that may cause problems at some point in the future.
  • Mixing Plenum: This is where the air from the separate ducts within your HVAC system comes together to combine and reach equilibrium in terms of humidity and temperature. Our technicians will ensure this is clean and unobstructed.
  • Coils & Condensate Pans: Our expert technicians will ensure the coils and condensate pans are clean, free of corrosion, and without any noticeable odors. They’ll check for microbial growth that could cause illness if untreated and that the condensate pans are draining properly.
  • Humidifiers: If your system has a humidifier then our technicians will check it thoroughly for cleanliness and ensure there’s no standing water or overflow in evidence. They will then look the humidifier over for microbial growth or mineral deposits that could be trouble if left alone.
  • HVAC Controls: Stout’s talented technicians will check your HVAC system controls to ensure they’re functioning correctly. This will be accomplished in different ways depending on the season when the inspection takes place.
  • HVAC Fans: Our technicians will check that all the system fans are clean, free of corrosion, and operate without excessive vibration. All belts will also be checked for vibration and any obvious signs of wear. And, the system will be checked for leakage and whether or not there is adequate pressurization for effective operation.
  • HVAC Filters: Lastly, the HVAC filters will be checked for their general condition and that they’ve been installed properly with no bypass in evidence. They filter area will also be checked for odors or visible signs of pollution.
