Furnace Certification or Furnace Inspection
One of the most commonly asked questions when someone is preparing to buy a home is what is the difference between a furnace certification and a furnace inspection. While both involve taking a look at the home’s furnace, a certification goes way beyond what an inspection does. Below you learn a little bit about what each one involves, and why if you’re purchasing a home you should go with a furnace certification.
What Is a Furnace Certification?
Having a furnace certification done in the home that you are buying or selling is much more extensive than a furnace inspection. When your furnace a certified a licensed HVAC contractor will come out with all of their tools and check each of the major components that are involved with a furnace.

What Is a Furnace Inspection?
A furnace inspection may be done by either your hired home inspector or an HVAC contractor. Essentially, in a furnace inspection, the contractor will take a look at the furnace and make recommendations for what repairs need to happen. It’s less extensive than a furnace certification and therefore could miss different components or parts that may cause you problems down the line. A furnace inspection is a great option if you are a current homeowner and want to make sure that your furnace is in tip-top shape, but if furnace certification is needed if you’re going to be purchasing a new home.
