    carbon monoxide furnace gas appliances gas hot water tanks home inspection



    Purchasing a house is a large financial endeavor and an investment in your family’s future. A house is more than a place to live or a means of shelter. For most individuals, it is the cornerstone of their life. It’s where the family gathers to celebrate, where the children play and grow and where you feel safe and secure. The house is the place where memories are made. Home inspections offer valuable information about the general condition of a home, outlining areas requiring minor and major repairs and pinpointing deficiencies in building structure.

    The complex task of assessing a home is more difficult because of the prevalence of myths attached to the process of home inspection. Problems that the seller or the Realtor may not be aware of become the financial responsibility of the buyer if they are not corrected prior to the final sale of the house. In hot markets full of multiple offers buyers are often tempted to do anything to get a home. One thing they should not do is forget the home inspection. Home inspectors play the role of objective third party.

    Typically, home inspectors evaluate a property five to ten days after negotiation of a contract is complete in order to secure mortgage approval. This inspection only checks the condition of the home at the time of inspection and is no guarantee of condition beyond that point. Home inspectors need no special equipment beyond flashlight, ladder, simple tools and documentation.


    • More than thirty U.S. states regulate the home inspection industry in some form.
    • There are about 5 million home inspections performed each year.
    • 99% of all home realtors recommend a home buyer to have a home inspection performed.
    • 2015 had the highest total in existing home sales in the last 9 years.




    Responsibilities of The Home Inspector:

    1. A good inspector will check for carbon monoxide levels and other harmful gases. Furthermore, a good inspector will freely describe what they are looking at, how to check for problems and what condition they believe the area is in.
    2. Fill out a standard inspection checklist that is detailed as possible to give a great piece of mind to the purchaser.
    3. The inspector shall inspect the heating systems using normal operating controls, and describe the energy source and heating method and also report if there is a need to repair heating systems which do not operate, or if they are deemed inaccessible.
    4. Providing an inspection contract, that includes what is and what is not covered in the initial home inspection (such as termites, well/water conditions or septic tank failure).
