Does a home inspector check ceiling fans?
Sunday, March 15, 2020
We inspect ceiling fans and all the inspectors we know do it also. But the State of Florida and the two major, national home inspector associations do not mention them—either as requiring inspection or exempt—in their Standards of Practice. If a ceiling fan is considered a “household appliance,” then Florida and the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) require inspection, but the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI) does not.
So, if you are concerned about whether the ceiling fans in a house you are buying are functional, double-check with your inspector that they are included in the report. To see what we look for, go to our blog post How does a home inspector check the ceiling fans?
