Heating System Inspection Checklist: Water or Steam

To ensure that your heating system is functioning properly, we go through every detail and thoroughly check your water heater.

Some of the steps we take for a heating inspection include:
  • Inspect the burners to ensure a clean flame and prevent blockage.
  • Check the relief valve for signs of leakage and check the piping.
  • Inspect for a backflow preventer and check for leakage as well as proper piping.
  • Inspect the fast fill valve for proper pressure.
  • Check the exhaust pipe for proper pitch (¼ inch per foot).
  • Check all joints; these should be connected with three screws in each one.
  • Look for signs of moisture that could be due to back drafting.
  • Check electrical connections and wiring for proper terminations & supporting.
  • Check safety switches & limit controls for proper setting and operation.
  • Visually inspect the pilot assembly & ignition module for loose connections.
  • Inspect the hot surface igniter & spark rod for cracks or misalignment.
  • Check flame sensor readings for proper OHM rating & alignment.
  • Inspect the unit for gas leaks/soap test inspection.
  • Check gas pressure for proper pressure using a manometer before and after valve.
  • Inspect circulators for leaks, check oil ports & oil and electrical connections.
  • Inspect zone valves for complete turning operations.
  • Inspect flow controls to ensure they are operating properly and they are not leaking.
  • Measure water temperature to make sure it does not exceed 190 degrees.

Steam Visual Inspection Checklist

Important disclaimer: natural gas systems only. We do not service oil fired systems.

  • Check for proper connection to chimney.
  • Check all wiring.
