Mechanical Inspections

Mission Statement:

We are committed to providing timely and accurate Mechanical Inspections assuring that systems are installed in accordance with the latest Florida Building Code to provide a safe and healthy environment for the citizens of Pasco County.

The Mechanical Inspectors provide inspections of Air Conditioning and Heating Systems, Fuel gas systems, and Energy Conservation Systems.


Beginning immediately, the energy calculations, Manual J and Manual S along with an AHRI matching certificate will be required to be on site for Final Mechanical Inspections as well as Rough and Final Insulation Inspections. At the time of the Final Mechanical Inspection, these documents must be up to date with the equipment actually installed (ie. The model numbers must match).

Your Inspector will be reviewing the documents to assure that the equipment installed is as indicated and that the Manual S shows that the equipment meets the Manual J load.

Non-compliance with this notice will result in a Failed inspection after September 30, 2019.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation in this manner.
