    I empathize with you on the lack of installers marking the correct heat strips installation. I troubleshoot far more machines than I install, and when I do install, I do far more gas furnaces than heat pumps. But I still mark it when I do one.

    That said, can you turn the aux heat on and then measure the amp draw with a clampmeter in the panel? That will probably tell you which one is installed.

    Whose policy is it that you can't open equipment panels?

    He's a home inspector, not electrical inspector.
    If you aim at nothing, you will hit it every time!
