    New HVAC Inspection

    Had a new Carrier Infinity 25VNA and FE4AN split system installed last week. Installer scheduled city inspection for tomorrow. What is involved with a new install inspection? I am out of town and will not be there for the visit.
    Happy holidays!

    It depends on the inspector, and the municipality you live in. Some are extremely thorough others are visual inspection and that's it.

    each one different

    Seems every inspector has a favorite area.. Maybe electrical, or venting
    sometimes it depends on their workload, if they have 14 places to go to,
    including travel time they may be onsite for 5 minutes!!
    Course they can check visually 20 things in 1 minutes of looking..
    venting/sheet metal/piping/taping/duct work and such.
    I like to be there too,but sometimes it just doesnt work out!!

    Code compliance only, the inspection won't verify QC or Operations. They are probably jammed due to the holiday schedule so he/she won't likely dilly dally.

    Depends on where you live. In California- you would need C4R/C6R Hers rater & a TXV/charge verification prior to final. You would need a plot plan showing setbacks & where condenser is going, duct R value verification in addition to all the code compliance requirements for the install.
    Or- maybe nothing but a 3 minute walk through.
