My Experience with a Home Inspector Regarding the Air Conditioner
I am with my buyer inspecting their dream home, which was just accepted by the seller. Along with my buyer is the buyer’s home inspector. As we are inspecting the home, the inspector mentions to the buyer the air conditioner is running too cold.
The inspector’s LED temperature gauge indicated that the temperature of the air coming out of the register was at 36F degrees. The buyer responded is this an issue with the unit. The inspector stated it should not be running this cold. I mention to the inspector, I know if the air conditioner was running warm that would be a concern, but running too cold? He suggested have it inspected by a licensed Air Conditioner Company. I explain to the buyer, the home inspector will give his professional opinion, if the inspector states it might be an issue, let’s hire air conditioner technician to inspect the unit for its condition/life span. I did a little research and called an air conditioning company and they explain to me, it’s better to have it running cold then too warm.
I explain this to the buyer and when you are buying a home with us you’ll be getting a "FREE" Home Warranty. When gettting a "FREE" Home Warranty with Delgado Realty, this will cover fixing or replacing the air conditioning unit if needed.
