Home inspectors run across many different types of heating systems. Each of them have their own characteristics that can be used by an inspector to identify and describe the type of heating system being inspected. Most of these heating systems can be described according to one or more of the following broad categories:
the heat-conveying medium;
the fuel used;
the nature of the heat; and
the efficiency and capacity of the system.
