Overview: Overview

A home inspection is not a pass or fail type of inspection.It is a visual only evaluation of the conditions of the systems and accessible components of the home designed to identify areas of concern within specific systems or components defined by the State Standards of Practice and the InterNachi Standards of Practice, that are both observed and deemed material by the inspector at the exact date and time of inspection. Conditions can and will change after the inspection over time. Future conditions or component failure can not be foreseen or reported on. Components that are not readily accessible can not be inspected.Issues that are considered as cosmetic are not addressed in this report. (Holes, stains, scratches, unevenness, missing trim, paint and finish flaws or odors). It is not the intent of this report to make the house new again.Any and all recommendations for repair, replacement, evaluation, and maintenance issues found, should be evaluated by the appropriate trades contractors within the clients inspection contingency window or prior to closing, which is contract applicable, in order to obtain proper dollar amount estimates on the cost of said repairs and also because these evaluations could uncover more potential issues than able to be noted from a purely visual inspection of the property. This inspection will not reveal every concern or issue that exists, but only those material defects that were observable on the day of the inspection. This inspection is intended to assist in evaluation of the overall condition of the dwelling only. This inspection is not a prediction of future conditions and conditions with the property are subject to change the moment we leave the premises.

Information: Categories

Listed below is a description of the Categories used throughout the report to help understand the severity of an item.  Any items list in the below categories may be based on the inspectors opinion.  These categories are not designed to be considered as an enforceable repair or responsibility of the current homeowner, but designed to inform the current client of the current condition of the property and structure.  They may be used in negotiations between real estate professionals. 

Maintenance/Monitor =  The item, component, or system while perhaps is functioning as intended may be in need of minor repair, service, or maintenance; is showing wear or deterioration that could result in an adverse condition at some point in the future; or consideration should be made in upgrading the item, component, or system to enhance the function, efficiency, and/or safety.  Items that fall into this category frequently be addressed by a homeowner or Licensed Handyman and are considered to be routine homeowner maintenance (DIY) or recommended upgrades.   


Deficiencies =  The item, component, or system while perhaps functioning as intended is in need of moderate repair, service, is showing signs of wear or deterioration that could result is an adverse condition at some point in the future; consideration should be made in upgrading the item, component, or system to enhance the function, efficiency and/or safety. Items falling into this category can frequently be addressed by a licensed handyman or qualified contractor of trade and are not considered routine maintenance or DIY items.  


Safety & Immediate Attention =  The item, component, or system poses a safety concern to occupants in or around the home.  Some listed concerns may have been considered acceptable for the time of the structures construction, but pose a current risk.  

The item, component or system is not functioning as intended, or needs further inspection by a qualified license contractor of trade; possible damage to the structure, item, or component may occur. Repairs may be possible to satisfactory condition with out repair.  

Condo Inspection

This inspection was limited to the areas and items that were accessible to the inspector.  Items owned or covered by an association are not included in this inspection.  Any mention of those items is simply done as a courtesy.

General: HVAC Split System - Heat Pump

This home employs a HVAC Heat Pump to both cool and heat the home. It's a split system that utilizes an outdoor condenser (or heat pump) unit and inside air handler/evaporator unit. 

A heat pump is a heat transporter constantly moving warm air from one place to another, to where it's needed or not needed, depending on the season. Even in air that seems too cold, heat energy is present. When it's cold outside a heat pump extracts this outside heat and transfers it inside. When it's warm outside, it reverses directions and acts like an air conditioner, removing heat from your home.

HVAC Heat Pump Equipment: Estimated Air Handler / Evaporator Age
2011

Air Handler/ Evaporator built in 2003. Unit is late service life of a standard industry recognized 12-15 years lifespan.

I recommend flushing & servicing your water heater tank annually for optimal performance. Water temperature should be set to at least 120 degrees F to kill microbes and no higher than 130 degrees F to prevent scalding. 

Here is a nice maintenance guide from Lowe's to help. 

I. The inspector shall inspect: A. the main water supply shut-off valve; B. the main fuel supply shut-off valve; C. the water heating equipment, including the energy source, venting connections, temperature/pressure-relief (TPR) valves, Watts 210 valves, and seismic bracing; D. interior water supply, including all fixtures and faucets, by running the water; E. all toilets for proper operation by flushing; F. all sinks, tubs and showers for functional drainage; G. the drain, waste and vent system; and H. drainage sump pumps with accessible floats. II. The inspector shall describe: A. whether the water supply is public or private based upon observed evidence; B. the location of the main water supply shut-off valve; C. the location of the main fuel supply shut-off valve; D. the location of any observed fuel-storage system; and E. the capacity of the water heating equipment, if labeled. III. The inspector shall report as in need of correction: A. deficiencies in the water supply by viewing the functional flow in two fixtures operated simultaneously; B. deficiencies in the installation of hot and cold water faucets; C. mechanical drain stops that were missing or did not operate if installed in sinks, lavatories and tubs; and D. toilets that were damaged, had loose connections to the floor, were leaking, or had tank components that did not operate. IV. The inspector is not required to: A. light or ignite pilot flames. B. measure the capacity, temperature, age, life expectancy or adequacy of the water heater. C. inspect the interior of flues or chimneys, combustion air systems, water softener or filtering systems, well pumps or tanks, safety or shut-off valves, floor drains, lawn sprinkler systems, or fire sprinkler systems. D. determine the exact flow rate, volume, pressure, temperature or adequacy of the water supply. E. determine the water quality, potability or reliability of the water supply or source. F. open sealed plumbing access panels. G. inspect clothes washing machines or their connections. H. operate any valve. I. test shower pans, tub and shower surrounds or enclosures for leakage or functional overflow protection.
