During my heating system inspection, I inspect the heating equipment, normal operating controls, automatic safety controls, chimneys, flues, and vents.  I inspect all solid fuel heating devices.  I evaluate your heat distribution systems (including fans, pumps, ducts, piping, supports, insulation, air filters, registers, radiators, fan coil units, and convectors).  I inspect for the presence of an installed heat source in each room.   Lastly I inspect the fireplaces and firelogs.
