Three Rivers Inspection & Engineering, Inc, provides home inspection services to potential home buyers. They inspected my property for a potential buyer. Their report to the buyer claimed that the furnace had a crack in the heat exchanger, ??The furnace has a crack in the second chamber from the right, in the back wall of the chamber, to the left of the seam". They were very specific about the location of the crack. Since it is impossible to see the rear of the heat exchanger without dismantling the furnace, it would be assumed that they utilized a digital inspection scope/camera to view it.

As the seller, I did the following investigation:
1) The seller purchased a digital inspection scope/camera with a 38? flexible shaft to obtain digital images of the area that was claimed to be cracked. No crack was found.
2) The seller contracted with a certified HVAC company to inspect the furnace. The furnace required dismantling to view the heat exchanger. No crack was found.

In researching home inspections, the seller discovered that it may be common practice for some less reputable inspection companies to automatically reject furnaces over 12 years old without actually finding any defects. Nor do they have the expertise or equipment to properly inspect a furnace. The claimed defect is usually in an area that is not easily visible for verification by the seller (like a crack in the rear of the heat exchanger), hoping that the seller will not attempt to verify the defect resulting in the purchase a new furnace or negotiating a lower price with the buyer therefore clearing the inspection company of any liability regarding the furnace. It is highly unlikely that Three Rivers Inspection & Engineering, Inc. dismantled the furnace or utilized an inspection scope to view the heat exchanger. If they had, they would have seen that there was no crack. They provided no proof of the claimed crack. It is the seller??s belief that Three Rivers Inspection & Engineering, Inc, ??made it all up? for liability reasons.

It is the seller??s belief that Three Rivers Inspection & Engineering, Inc, INTENTIONALLY MISREPRESENTED the furnace condition and exaggerated verbiage of other conditions of the house providing a biased report that was in favor of the buyer. A home buyer uses this report in price negotiations with the seller to obtain a lower price. The deceptive practice of automatically rejecting an older furnace has unnecessarily cost the seller time and money to rebut Three Rivers Inspection & Engineering, Inc biased and intentionally false report.
