We inspect all city-permitted commercial HVAC systems and residential refrigeration installations (heat pumps, air conditioners, and mini splits systems) to ensure they comply with the Seattle Mechanical Code, Seattle Energy Code, and the International Fuel Gas Code.
We also conduct refrigeration operating permit annual site inspections (see Seattle Mechanical Code Chapter 1 Section 122 for requirements). These types of inspections are initiated and scheduled by our inspectors based on the expiration date of the permit.
Note: Heating-only furnace installations are inspected by your building inspector.
In general you should request an inspection after your system is “roughed in,” but before any part of that system is covered. If you have a unique situation or need help, contact your district inspector or call our customer support team.
Our inspectors can be reached between 7:30 - 8:30 a.m. By contacting your inspector, you can work out the details and timing of your inspection.
