Quality Inspections

We've got your back

Gain peace of mind knowing you hired the right professional the first time. A quality assurance inspector from Duke Energy will thoroughly inspect the workmanship, validate the efficiency ratings of the product, ensure code compliance and verify that the job site is left clean. We’re here for you.

What we will inspect

Inspection types vary on the project but may include:

  • Validation that the efficiency ratings as stated per ENERGY STAR® or Air Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) are met
  • Products are properly installed and working as intended by manufacturer
  • Diagnostic evaluation for reduced duct leakage
  • Diagnostic evaluation for whole home air leakage
Inspectors will call and schedule your inspection up to five days in advance and can take up to two hours to complete depending on the size of your home and the improvements that have been made. Our inspectors do not correct or repair any potential issues found at the time of inspection. An inspector will note the results in our system and notify the installation contractor of the items found. Duke Energy requires all contractors to take corrective actions to satisfy our standards or requirements.
