What is the difference between serviceable and satisfactory in a home inspection report?

Not much. Both terms mean the home inspector did not have any defects to report for the building component in question. Neither word should be understood to mean that something is in perfect, like-new condition; just that the component appeared to be acceptable. In some cases, the item is tested, as with an air conditioner, and satisfactory performance is part of the evaluation. In others, it is simply visually inspected.
