Inspect a garage heater? 12 years 1 week ago #24736

Should a standard inspection include gas fed, thermostatically controlled, ceiling hung garage heaters?

Never seen one here in California :) Make sure to go to Profile up above and add your location so people know where you are.

I don't see why that wouldn't be included in looking up the homes HVAC system.

I would include it in my garage section.  Those heaters usually don't have any ducting.  It is a simple inspection.  Just make sure to check the mounts.  Depending on the size, it could be a lot of weight.  Sort of like the home mechanic that doesn't think anything about putting an engine hoist in the middle of a truss and hanging an engine there for weeks.

There is nothing sweeter than the smell of fresh cut grass on a baseball infield, the click of a wooden bat and the taste of a hot dog at a warm sunny daytime double-header.

Joe,
You would inspect it the same as a forced hot air unit that would be in the house. I just had one last month and this one was vented to the outside through the wall. So, check for the proper normal operation and the flue venting (if any) for clearances and termination.

I agree, you are inspecting the components of the home.
