was great. He provided good information when he came out the first time. I was provided the different options for my house including the possible problems that" can be encountered. The area was in a snow storm the day he was supposed to come work, and he notified me in advance that it was unlikely he would be able to make our appointment. He came in anyway after the roads turned out to not be as bad as predicted. During the install we discussed potential paths for routing the exhaust pipe, and his assistant provided the best idea which we ended up going with. I was very happy with the engagement on the issue which would have an effect on my use of the garage. Overall I was very pleased. He was professional the entire time and I would easily recommend him to anyone.

Home inspection

For most of us, our home is the biggest investment we will ever make. For those preparing to buy, a quality home inspection is key. An inspection is usually required for a home purchase. A highly rated home inspector will look at every nook and cranny to gauge structure stability, present and potential dangers. But remember, a home inspection is not a guarantee or a warranty - it may not find everything.

You may never believe the things a home inspector will discover unless you're there, too. Being at your home inspection lets you see any problems firsthand.

Bathroom exhaust fans are installed to remove moisture from the bathroom to the exterior of the home. If yours isn't working, don't ignore the problem.

One highly rated provider shares five things your contractor may have forgotten during a home inspection and why you should look to a qualified inspector.

It really depends on where you are and the type of work.  In Texas most home inspectors are only trained in general areas of interest and have no detailed knowledge of construction practices.  Some do after having carrerrs in other fields including engineering or as general contractors/home builders.  If you are wondering if a completed job was done in a professional manner appearance wise and have minor concerns an inspector can help you.  If it is more extensive hire professionals from the different fields to inspect the respective work.  Plumber for the plumbing, electrician for electrical, etc.  An experienced GC or inspector can do an initial inspection and advise you whether you should have the concerns further investigated by the trades.  Remember, they can't tell much about what they can't see so framing and insulation concerns will be hard to verify.

It's a little unusual to do this except in cases of fixer-upper properties but you should call a local general contractor with experience renovating/remodeling homes in the neighborhood.  They'll know the typical problems with the homes there and what to look out & budget for.  For example, here in San Antonio many of the homes built in the mid-fifties to 60's have lead drains that were not put in properly or were installed in such a way that repairs are not quick or cheap.  Many homes even older have the same drains but seem to be less hassle to repair.  Homes in my neighborhood have a problem with improper supply lines (wrong type of copper) which break due to corrosion.  Just make sure the contractor you hire to go over the property with you has done significant work on homes in the area on similar homes.

Are the heat pumps commercial or residential units?
Are the heat pumps Package or Split System?
Are there actually 33 PTAC units?
Are you an EPA certified person( refrigerant )?

Here is my suggestion, break it down into manageable portions(ie one heat pump and a few PTAC units every other month) to keep from being overloaded.  
Clean/Replace filters
Check/inspect electrical wiring and connections
Check amperage draw of compressors/motors 
Check capacitance of start and run capacitors
Check contractors/relays for wear/pitting
Check refrigerant levels and record superheated/subcooling
Check external static pressures across air handler(s)
Check deltaT (return and supply air temps) 
Lubricate motors( if applicable)
Inspect Belts/Pulleys( if applicable)
Clean outdoor coils
Clean indoor coils

Start there and HAVE FUN!!!

The review went great, and I tagged along with
Asheville  Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
for the entire time.
Asheville  Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
called in advance and said he'd be late due to a previous inspection at another home that took longer than originally planned. Once here,he gave dozens of tips on improving our indoor air quality, conserving energy, saving money, and preventing insect intrusions.
Asheville  Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
prioritized action items, the vast majority of which are straightforward enough for me to implement myself. It was frankly surprising how many things were not as good as they could be in our 6-year-old home! We will probably invest in a duct-cleaning service, but other than that, for now all projects are either free or low cost with a trip to a local home improvement store. I have already implemented a few of his suggestions, and I have a nice to-do list for this weekend. :)
I strongly recommend
Asheville  Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
to anyone looking for suggestions for improving the healthiness of their home.

Asheville  Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
came highly recommended from two different friends. He showed up on time, spent a long time doing the inspection and then explained everything he found wrong or questionable in great detail. He also explained how lots of the mechanicals worked, which was worth the value of the inspection by itself. He clearly is very knowledgeable about a wide range of issues and gave me a high level of confidence that I knew what I needed to know to negotiate with the seller on what would be fixed prior to my purchase. He's also very personable and explained things in an easy to understand way. He was also clear on what was important to fix and what was a "nice to have done". Great guy. I trust
Asheville  Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
and recommend them highly. He also did a radon test, which is priced separately.

was responsive via e-mail, and on time to our appointment. From the exterior to the interior, the crawl space to the attic, he inspected every joist and rafter. The crawl space was very tight and cobwebbed and dirty, but
Asheville  Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
donned his suit and crawled the entire space. He probed and found weak and damaged areas and photographed problem areas as well. Our impression of the inspection process was very positive. He also took time to explain some details while onsite.
The report arrived via e-mail within 24 hours.
The report was extremely detailed. He pointed out problems and possible solutions to each area, supported by pictures and commentary.
If you are a buyer of a home or investment property looking for thorough and detailed inspection
Asheville  Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
is THE ONE. Over the past 20 years I have used 6 home inspectors and he has been the most thorough of all. The fee is a bargain given the negotiating power of the report, as well as the ability to stay away from problems that will be too much to handle.

We called
Asheville  Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
and made the appointment AFTER we told him we had seen his listing on Angie's List and wanted to take advantage of the $255.00 Home Mold Assessment. We were completely unaware of being able to "buy today" on-line to be able to insure receiving the $255.00 price. We were buying this package for our daughter's home as a Christmas present. On 12/5/13
Asheville  Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
showed up right on time and spent 3 hours in the house and crawl space while we took copious notes. We appreciated his knowledge and his continued backing in the months to come to review any questions we had on everything he covered. When it came time to pay
Asheville  Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
he again asked us how we heard of his services and we reminded him of our previous conversation about Angie's List and the $255.00 Home Mold Assessment on Angie's List. He began working his way down from the "normal" price of $450.00 and stated that the Angie's List offer did not include the crawl space so we ended up with a $300.00 price. We felt that with Angie's List we did not have to worry about "buyer beware" so we did not sign a contract ahead of time that would include what he would inspect and at what price. Again let us confirm that
Asheville  Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
knows his job and offers so much information that it can sometimes be overwhelming.

I would definitely hire
Asheville  Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
from
Asheville  Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
as my inspector again. He was very thorough, professional and he clearly took the work on our prospective house very seriously. He pointed out the important issues/problems with the house and suggested various solutions. His expertise and
Asheville  Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
was very helpful. Even the seller there admitted he would hire
Asheville  Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
if he was buying a home. His report which i just read was also extremely detailed and kind of a "homeowner's manual" I'm going to keep as long as we live in the house.

This is by far the best investment I have made in my home.
Asheville  Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
is an amazing inspector. Not only is he certified in many fields, but he has practical experience that makes all the difference. One of the reasons why I picked
Asheville  Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
is because he only does inspections. He does not do actual repairs. This is wonderful because I know he is free of any bias or interest in discovering expensive issues.
Asheville  Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
started out by asking us what our concerns and issues were. We initially wanted him to inspect for mold that was causing health problems. That was just one of the many things
Asheville  Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
did for us.
Asheville  Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
did a complete top to bottom inspection of the house. He looked for problems with energy efficiency, health issues, comfort issues, etc. He not only identified problems, but sat down and explained the best and least expensive way to address each issue on our own whenever possible. He told us what we need to do and offered to help guide us on any projects we might have to undertake in order to improve the quality of our house. He also prepared a full report with pictures so we could identify each issue.
After the inspection
Asheville  Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
has continued to provide insight and advice on how to tackle each issue that was found. Most of the repairs would've cost us a lot of money if we had outside contractors do it, but
Asheville  Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
told us how to easily do these things ourselves. He has checked up on us several times and has provided great assistance in getting some of the items we needed, but were unsure how to procure.
Asheville  Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
has been nothing but helpful and his service far exceeds the modest price we were charged. I will be sure to have him inspect any new home we may ever have or even to assist with any major remodeling of the house. I will be recommending him to all of my friends. If I could offer one piece of advice for any homeowner, potential buyer, or even someone looking to have work done on their house it would be to first call
Asheville  Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
and have him do an inspection. You would be amazed at the things he would be able to tell you that other inspectors would not even care about. For the modest price he charges, you would be a fool to spend full dollar before having him look your home over. Remember he does not do any actual repairs or work with referrals so you know you are getting an unbiased inspection. The only bias he has is to help you live in the best environment possible.
