Service Heating / Cooling System

The last service date of the forced air heating / cooling system appeared to be more than 1 year ago, or the inspector was unable to determine the last service date. Ask the property owner when it was last serviced. If unable to determine the last service date, or if this system was serviced more than 1 year ago, recommend that a qualified HVAC contractor service this system and make repairs if necessary. Because this system has a compressor and refrigerant system, this servicing should be performed annually in the future. Any needed repairs noted in this report should be brought to the attention of the contractor when it's serviced.

A Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) - Is an ultra sensitive receptacle outlet and/or breaker designed to shut off all electric current. Used in bathrooms, kitchens, exterior waterproof outlets, garage outlets, and "wet areas" to prevent electrical shock. Has a small reset / test button on the receptacle and/or breaker.

GFCI / AFCI Protection- Extended: AFCI protection present- Extended
No

An Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter (AFCI) is a circuit breaker that breaks the circuit when it detects an electric arc in the circuit it protects to prevent electrical fires. An AFCI selectively distinguishes between a harmless arc (incidental to normal operation of switches, plugs, and brushed motors), and a potentially dangerous arc (that can occur, for example, in a lamp cord which has a broken conductor).

Smoke Detectors / CO Alarms / Door Bell: Smoke Detector Installed / Location(s)
Yes

Note: Smoke detectors are tested only for audibility and not tested using actual smoke.

Smoke Detectors / CO Alarms / Door Bell: Carbon Monoxide Alarm(s) Installed / Location(s)
No

Note: Carbon Monoxide alarms are tested only for audibility and not tested using actual Carbon Monoxide.

I. The inspector shall inspect: A. the service drop; B. the overhead service conductors and attachment point; C. the service head, gooseneck and drip loops; D. the service mast, service conduit and raceway; E. the electric meter and base; F. service-entrance conductors; G. the main service disconnect; H. panelboards and over-current protection devices (circuit breakers and fuses); I. service grounding and bonding; J. a representative number of switches, lighting fixtures and receptacles, including receptacles observed and deemed to be arc-fault circuit interrupter (AFCI)-protected using the AFCI test button, where possible; K. all ground-fault circuit interrupter receptacles and circuit breakers observed and deemed to be GFCIs using a GFCI tester, where possible; and L. smoke and carbon-monoxide detectors. II. The inspector shall describe: A. the main service disconnect's amperage rating, if labeled; and B. the type of wiring observed. III. The inspector shall report as in need of correction: A. deficiencies in the integrity of the serviceentrance conductors insulation, drip loop, and vertical clearances from grade and roofs; B. any unused circuit-breaker panel opening that was not filled; C. the presence of solid conductor aluminum branch-circuit wiring, if readily visible; D. any tested receptacle in which power was not present, polarity was incorrect, the cover was not in place, the GFCI devices were not properly installed or did not operate properly, evidence of arcing or excessive heat, and where the receptacle was not grounded or was not secured to the wall; and E. the absence of smoke detectors. IV. The inspector is not required to: A. insert any tool, probe or device into the main panelboard, sub-panels, distribution panelboards, or electrical fixtures. B. operate electrical systems that are shut down. C. remove panelboard cabinet covers or dead fronts. D. operate or re-set over-current protection devices or overload devices. E. operate or test smoke or carbon-monoxide detectors or alarms F. inspect, operate or test any security, fire or alarms systems or components, or other warning or signaling systems. G. measure or determine the amperage or voltage of the main service equipment, if not visibly labeled. H. inspect ancillary wiring or remote-control devices. I. activate any electrical systems or branch circuits that are not energized. J. inspect low-voltage systems, electrical de-icing tapes, swimming pool wiring, or any time controlled devices. K. verify the service ground. L. inspect private or emergency electrical supply sources, including, but not limited to: generators, windmills, photovoltaic solar collectors, or battery or electrical storage facility. M. inspect spark or lightning arrestors. N. inspect or test de-icing equipment. O. conduct voltage-drop calculations. P. determine the accuracy of labeling. Q. inspect exterior lighting.

19.2.1 - Service

Wires Damaged/Deteriorated

One or more service drop wires were damaged or deteriorated. Wires to the point of the splice cap are the responsibility of the power company. Wires from the splice cap to the meter are the responsibility of the property owner. Recommend proper individual responsible repair.

19.3.1 - Panels

Inadequate Space

One or more panels had inadequate working space, which can be typical in an older property due to changing building standards, but this can make it difficult for electricians to properly and safely work inside the panel. As of now, electric panels should have the following clearances:

~An open area 30 inches wide by 3 feet deep in front of the panel 6 feet 3 inches of headroom in front of the panel
~The wall below the panel is clear to the floor

Recommend that a qualified person repair or make modifications per standard building practices if the client deems this necessary based on where the panel is located and how the client intends to occupy the property.
