About The Program


AEC_HomeInspectorsGuide2017_thumb.pngWelcome to the American Energy Coalition (AEC) Oilheat-Home Inspector Partnership Program. There is great responsibility that goes along with being a Home Inspector. Buyers and sellers expect you to know about everything from the attic to the basement, and provide valuable insight on what’s in their best interests. Sellers will want to know what they can do to make their property more marketable, and buyers will look to you for advice on potential trouble spots as they consider their significant real estate investment.

Home heating is one of the largest ongoing expenses a homeowner faces. As an Inspector, it’s in your best interest to know the facts about heating oil, Bioheat® fuel and other fuels. That’s why we created the AEC Oilheat-Home Inspector Partnership Program

Your local Oilheat partner can help with your home inspections by providing:

  • System information – they can provide a history of the home’s HVAC equipment, including: age, service history, estimated annual fuel use, costs, and more.
  • Storage tank information – age, location, size, material, and whether it’s protected under any local tank insurance programs.
  • Information on potential performance and efficiency upgrades to heating equipment and tanks – including estimated costs and savings. They can also provide information on local rebates and tax incentives that are available.
  • Bioheat® fuel for homeowners looking for renewable resources.interNACHI_logo.png
