An attic is often overlooked since it's not a place that is visited frequently. However if the attic space is not properly insulated and vented, this can lead to major problems down the road.
Making sure that your whole house has the proper ventilation is extremely important to eliminate moisture problems. This will ensure your home's integrity for many years to come.
Plumbing involves the installation, maintenance and alteration of piping, fixtures, appliances and accessories in connection with sanitary or storm drainage facilities, venting systems and public or private water supply systems. A plumbing system consists of three systems. Water supply, drain waste and disposal, mechanical, ample fixtures and equipment. We inspect and operate all fixtures and run several gallons of water through the plumbing system, checking the overall condition of the system. Leaking pipes, dripping valves, clogged pipes, corrosion, reversed hot and cold water supplies. Limited hot water or inadequate water pressure are indications of a defective plumbing system.
We make sure that the electrical system has the correct amount of amperage to run your home safely and efficiently. We inspect the main service line and the service panel and address any safety issues that may be present. We also note the presence of GFCI's and the over all safety of the whole electrical system.
Heating & Cooling
Heating, Venting and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems should be inspected regularly, not just when the house is being sold. Whether central air conditioning or window room air conditioners are used, these systems can use a lot of electrical power.
