Heat Pump Inspection

Do you all remove the screwed-on access cover to the heat pump blower and wiring area?

I sure do, and this is why?

I do too.

Is that ‘problem’ electrical covering or metal piping?

The electrical tape (splice) is melted. That particular connection got real hot.

Yes.

If you can open an electrical service panel, you can open an HVAC panel.

Though this is outside of home inspection, it should be addressed by the the HI and considered by the client.
