Thanks Marcel, no talent at all. Remember, a caveman can do it! ;D

I just sent the sample off to NiFAST to get the ball rolling.

This is an example of what I was sayng about an SOP for NiFast inspections. I collaborated with Russ Spriggs on this SOP for heating. We took the Nachi SOP and sliced it up a bit.

Please comment.

Heating

I. The inspector shall visually inspect:

A. the heating systems normal operation;
B. Exposed flue and vent piping for potential carbon monoxide leakage and proximity to combustible materials;
C. Exposed fuel supply piping or conduit for leaking, damage, deterioration, or proximity to harms way.
D. the heating systems method of filtration;

II. The inspector shall describe:

A. the heating equipment
B. the energy source;
C. the heating method;
D. the visible fuel supply piping or conduit for aparent leaking, damage, deterioration, or proximity to harms way;
E. the means or lack thereof, of disconnecting the fuel and or energy source for service or safety;
F. the method of obtaining combustion air for the heating systems operation;
G. any areas of the heating systems that are deemed inaccessible;

II. The inspector shall not:

A. inspect or evaluate interiors of flues or chimneys, heat exchangers,
     combustion air systems, fresh air  intakes, humidifiers, dehumidifiers,
     geothermal systems or solar heating systems.                                 
B. evaluate underground or concealed fuel supply systems.
C. evaluate the uniformity, temperature, flow, balance, distribution
D. light or ignite pilot flames.
E. operate heating, heat pump systems or other heating systems
    when ambient temperatures or other circumstances are not
    conducive to safe operation or may damage the equipment.
F. override electronic thermostats.
G. evaluate fuel quality.
H. verify thermostat calibration, heat anticipation, or automatic
    setbacks, timers, programs or clocks.

Looks good Drew and good morning to you.

Should the SOP also include all the other inspected items that would normally be done like extinguishers, smoke alarms, CO detectors ect.?
Seems like these types of inspections would be more official with a Standard of Practice that covers everything.
Just a thought, but you are definitely on the right track.  :)

Hi Marcel, yes this is just one of many sections of the SOP that needs to be done. I chose to start with heating because I think we can all agree it belongs there.

If anyone wants to be involved, there are many sections of the sample report posted that needs do's and don't attached to it. Feel free and post it here for discussion.
