After notifying the Division of Building Regulation as provided herein, of request for final inspection, in each heating, ventilating and air conditioning system, the Inspector shall make such final inspection for the compliance with the requirements of the Building Code. Upon written complaint from the owner, the contractor shall make tests, under the supervision of the Inspector, as provided in subsection (d) hereof.
