"The service of the inspectors of
are always thorough and complete. They answer all questions and give insight to the structure of the home." They explain things in terms that you can understand and always have follow up with photos and details to help you make a sound decision.

was fantastic. As first time home buyers we didn't know what to expect the inspection to be like so he walked us through what he'd" do and what he as looking for in the house. He was very thorough with the inspection and pointed out anything that he thought needed address on the spot as well as in his report he sent later on in the day. We were very confident going into the house that all the problems had been identified and we knew what would need addressed that the sellers didn't want to do (very minor things). While the house ended up falling through we were more than happy with the work
did and will be using him again when we do decide to get back into the

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.

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!!!

Excellent. Rich Able is reliable, professional, thorough (4-hr. inspection on a 1500 sq. ft. property), and he explains all issues well. Also, reasonably priced for time spent. Because of these excellent qualities, this is the second time I have used him for a home inspection.

does a great job inspecting houses. I have used him twice this year. The first house I had him inspect, I decided not to purchase when major foundation problems were revealed. I chose him again when I put an offer in on a second house. His price is more than reasonable, and he gives a thorough report with many, many pictures. I highly recommend! (Cost listed was per inspection.)

was our inspector. Was there early and had already been up on the roof when we arrived. Took extra time to go over with us every concern she found. Made sure we understood everything. Encouraged questions. Was quick with her report, which was well-written and easy to understand. Highly recommended!

Overall I was pleased with the work done. Similar to a previous reviewer, after living in the home for 8 months there have been a few minor annoyances I've discovered that I think should have been caught. I did have a home warranty, which is a pain to deal with but has saved me some expense from these items.
First the good:
Rich is very professional, personable, and punctual. Every time I emailed him I had a quick response. I was also amazed at how quickly he turned the final report around. This was a 1.5 day job and I feel like I got my money's worth. I would recommend him to friends and neighbors for the average sized home.
I followed Rich around the entire time, and I highly recommend everyone do that so they get a better understanding of their house. Plus, 4 eyes looking at things are always better than two. There were a number of things I noticed before Rich did (cracked grout in shower, some cracks in brick veneer, etc).
Room for improvement:
This was a 6500 sq ft house, and in hindsight maybe it would be better to find someone who specializes in higher-end homes, although maybe that doesn't exist. Just due to the sheer size, I found myself having to remind Rich that we needed to revisit X area of the home because we skipped it earlier. After we wrapped up for the day I had to remind him we hadn't done septic test yet.
Speaking of septic test, we had a septic backup the first weekend we moved in and my wife did 5 loads of laundry. I'm not going to say Rich didn't do his septic test, which happened when he came back next day and I could not be present. It involved something with dye and looking for water bubbling up in the backyard. But, apparently he didn't open the lid on the side of the house because it was clearly obvious it needed pumping as the solids were visible right at the top. It was also visible that the top part of the plastic tank had collapsed somewhat near the collar. Thankfully the septic guy who came out said he wasn't too concerned about it (yet), because this is on a slope and will be quite an endeavor to replace. The home warranty covered a septic tank pumping because I had asked for the seller to include that coverage and all it cost me was $60 deductible, plus another $60 deductible for the plumber to clear a backup in the basement tub that resulted from the septic backup.
I also found in my office a pair of cabinets he must have skipped, because inside was old plumbing that had not been properly capped off when the previous owner remodeled and removed a wet bar. I kept smelling a foul stench I blamed on my dog, only to discover the uncapped drain that was emitting sewer gasses.
Lastly, the unit heater in the garage has a cracked heat exchanger. It wouldn't have been "that" hard to go inspect it a little closer, but the seller had some stuff piled up in front of it and at the end of the day the contracts say the seller has to make everything available for inspection. I should have gone back and demanded the seller move some stuff and pay for re-inspection. Again, it appears that I have been successful in getting the home warranty company to replace this since there's no way to prove it wasn't pre-existing and is related to normal wear and tear.
Summary:
I'm not going to nitpick too much - there were a couple other small things. That being said, it can only be expected that a couple things would be missed on a house this size. The only one that really concerns me is the septic with the partial tank collapse near the collar. That could be a catastrophic loss if it gets worse. I'm trusting that my septic guy is right and it's not going to collapse further as long as nobody drives a vehicle over it.

This is the third time I've used Christian for a home inspection. Great guy -- friendly, honest and straightforward. He is very professional and does a thorough and useful inspection of properties. I would not purchase a home in the Indy metro area without having Christian do an inspection beforehand!

In preparation to sell our old home (built in 1928), we decided to have the house inspected to give us an idea of what needed to be repaired and what repairs would be critical. Rich spent 5 1/2 hours inspecting everything....electrical, HVAC, windows, exterior, walls, plumbing, etc. Within a few days, he emailed us a comprehensive list, including photos, of everything inspected with notations of how critical inspected areas were to be addressed. Mr. Able was very professional, yet personable. We learned a lot about our old home, and feel confident that we have addressed any buyers' concerns before we list our home.
