4.1.1 - Vegitation

Vegetation too close to structure/ incontact with structure

Vegetation such as trees, shrubs and/or vines was in contact with or close to the building exterior and/or other structures. Vegetation can serve as a pathway for wood-destroying insects and can retain moisture against the exterior after it rains. This is a conducive condition for wood-destroying organisms. Recommend pruning, moving or removing vegetation as necessary to maintain at least 6 inches of space between it and the building exterior. A 1-foot clearance is better.

7.8.1 - Switches / Receptacles

3 Prong Ungrounded 2 Wire

3-slot receptacles (outlets) were installed in one or more areas without a ground wire hookup. These do not have an equipment ground. These outlets should either be swapped out with a 2 prong outlet, or upgrade to grounded receptacles, which typically requires installing new wiring from the main panel. The NEC (National Electric Code) also allows these outlets to be replaced with GFCI protection as a repair to use grounded appliances with them. Appliances that require a ground should not be used with ungrounded receptacles. Examples of such appliances include computers and related hardware, refrigerators, freezers, portable air conditioners, clothes washers, aquarium pumps, and electrically operated gardening tools. The client should be aware of this limitation when planning use for various rooms, such as an office. Consult with a qualified electrician about upgrading to 3-wire, grounded circuits or installing GFCI protection.

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.

GFCI / AFCI Protection- Extended: AFCI protection present- Extended
Yes

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).

16.7.1 - Smoke Detectors / CO Alarms / Door Bell

Smoke Detector Missing

Smoke alarms were missing and/or not installed in one or more locations. Smoke alarms should be replaced as necessary and installed per standard building practices (e.g. in hallways leading to bedrooms, in each bedroom, on each floor). We recommend installing photoelectric type smoke detectors / alarms.

Note: Homes built prior to 1992 were not required to have smoke detectors installed in each bedroom, only hallways. Regardless, calfire.ca.gov recommends installing smoke detectors in each bedroom for increased safety. Click here for more information.
