Toilet was noted as being loose where it attached to the floor. Leaks can occur. As the inspector cannot determine the condition of the wax ring underneath which seals the toilet, it is recommended that a qualified contractor remove the toilet(s) for further evaluation and repair if deemed necessary. A new wax ring should be installed and toilet(s) should be securely anchored to the floor to prevent movement and leaking.

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. 

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

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.

Air Conditioner: Appears Functional

The temperature split differential between the return air and supply registers was within the 14-22 degree (F) range at time of inspection.

The photo(s) below is/are a thermal image of the air temperature at supply and return air register(s) at the time of this inspection.

Heating / Forced Air: Appears Functional

Heat system appears to be in working order. Supply air from the heating system should be 100 degrees Fahrenheit or higher. 

The photo(s) below is/are a thermal image of the supply air temperature at register(s) at the time of this inspection.

Heating / Forced Air: Furnace Abandoned / Not In Service

Note: A furnace has been abandoned and no longer in service and has not been removed.Note

GFCI Issues

One or more ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) receptacles (outlets) were not functioning properly (would not trip / would not reset / still energized when tripped). Recommend repairs be made by a qualified licensed electrical contractor. For example, replacing with new GFCI receptacle outlet.

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
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).
