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!!!

wasted little time in getting on with the task at hand. He promised to inspect the property as if it were his own. I believe he did just that.
Columbia Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
is a true professional and dedicated to his work.
He also (for an additional fee) made himself available for the pre-closing walk through in order to verify that the promised remediations had been successfully completed by the buyer.I felt he was my advocate during the entire process. He is not, however, an alarmist who is bent on finding unreasonable fault wherever possible and causing undue stress all around. His approach is methodical and rational.

came and did a phenomenal job, I thought that the price was reasonable. I thought that he took the time to answer all my questions appropriately and he really spent his time looking throughout my house thoroughly.

arrived on time, and got right to work. He cleaned out a bunch of junk that a previous owner had left under the shed. He then enclosed the bottom of the shed, using ventilated materials with heavy wire screen so that air would circulate under the shed, but rodents couldn't get under to make a new home there.

also replaced some rotting boards at bottom of the shed with pressure treated lumber, and sealed up the large gap between the door and the door sill. Although it took him longer than he anticipated, he charged me just what he had estimated. This is the fourth time I've had

to literally be our eyes, ears and noses! We were NOT disappointed! He was extremely thorough with exceptional attention to the smallest details.

do an inspection and he help us avoid a home with several problems earlier this year. He is fantastic to work with as he explains what he is doing and what he is looking for every step of the way to help give you an idea of where things are at and what to be watching for when that home becomes your home. I plan to use him if I am ever in need again in the future and will recommend him to anyone that is needing a home inspection in the future.

was one of several companies recommended to me by our realtor. I decided on him based on some of what I read on his website.
Nick
Columbia Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
was prompt for our 9:30AM appointment, even at the house before we were! I was along side him the whole time -- from atop the ladder as he inspected the roof until he finished the basement more than 3.5 hrs later. He pointed out anything that concerned him or he thought would require my attention in the future. He also noted when repairs or improvements were well done. When Nick identified an area of concern he would clearly explain what was needed, the potential ballpark figure of costs to address, and a few names of contractors whose work he approves of.
I asked a lot of questions along the way, some pretty basic, and he always answered thoroughly. At no time did it seem like he was bothered by all my questions, he encouraged them! He also answered several follow-up email questions in a very timely manner.
I received a full report only several hours after the inspection had been completed!
