"I purchased this house with my fiancé while deployed overseas in Afghanistan. I had
do a home inspection which was extremely detailed" along with great pictures which were very helpful. He is one of the easiest guys to do business with and I would recommend him to anyone without a second thought.

"He was there early and seemed knowledgeable on most things. The only thing that kept him from an A+ rating is the fact that my bf seemed to be able to pick out more" issues with the home in question then the inspector in some instances. But overall he was great and professional and his reports were well detailed and easy to read.

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.

Dear Angie: Should I hire an independent home inspector to look over a newly built tract home? — Deborah D. of Renton, Washington

Experts say a push for energy efficiency carries a cost to human health, in some cases, like when sealed houses exacerbate asthma. How to go green and be well.

Being at the home inspection allows you to see your "dream home" from the inspector's unbiased viewpoint, says Sherwood. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Diwata F. of Buffalo, New York)
Home Inspection

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.

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!!!

performed a complete and through home inspection for new home prior to purchase. The final report was highly documented and presently very well with professional recommendations for repairs to be completed by seller. Highly recommended.

We received the inspection report very next morning, around 7:30am and they had a very thorough inspection report. It had pictures of everything they inspected and if maintenance or repairs was in need, they provided an estmated cost. Best report I could've ever asked for. Unfortunately, we did not get the house because with all the repair it needed, the Sellers a Federal Agency would not budge a penny on the cost of house. So we are back to the drawing board on looking for another home and will definitely use

was our inspector and was very easy to talk to. We arrived early and he was already on the roof starting his inspection. He encouraged us to follow him and ask questions. He explained everything he was inspecting and what he was looking for. He answered all our questions in a manner we could easily understand. Any issues he found that needed attention before we bought the home was explained to us and what should be done. Our realtor was impressed with him and may even use him in the future. Our report was sent to us within a couple hours. He even tightened our kitchen cabinets! We would absolutely recommend him to anyone.

and their team were beyond thorough and helped give them tons of recommendations for people to fix the home. This was the best recommendation I have ever received. The first home we looked at they were so thorough that we decided to not go through with the sale as too much work was needed. We used them again for our 2nd home inspection, received a discount for using them again and moved forward with the home purchase. The whole team is amazing, knowledgeable and work for you and your new home. I would highly recommend them. They know what they are doing and on top of it all they are fun and friendly.

would be anywhere but at the top of the list.
