In the upcoming months we would like to share some of our videos with you. The videos will be about building science, building inspections and building testing. Because I have been involved in many different types of building construction, health and safety to installing mechanical and electrical equipment over the past 30 years. Perhaps these videos may help you better understand the functionality of buildings. We will talk a lot about safety in our videos to understanding the importance of inspections.
We always begin with the inspection first. Once we understand the buildings functions residential and commercial we can then move on to what needs to be tested. We never consider a inspection complete until testing has been completed. When you hire us we will always ask you if you want testing done. General when you purchase a home of commercial building you expect it to operate like it is suppose to, correct? And you want to feel safe in your building plus want a fair deal, correct?
Here are a few things to think about. And yes we can answer all these questions if you let us.
1.Does the furnace operate correctly and is it safe? A general visual inspection will not answer that question.
2.Does the furnace “air handler” provide the correct amount of air to each room? Broken ducts, disconnected ducts, incorrect sizing of duct systems are all potential problems.
3. Does the gas fired furnace or hot water heater back draft? This means does carbon monoxide draft back into your home or business.
4. Is this new purchase you are about to make free and clear of radon, CO, CO2, formaldehyde, mold, asbestos?
5. How efficient is the gas fired appliances?
6. Is the sewer line from the dewling to city services broken or has root issues?
Here are a few videos we have posted.
Part 1. Introduction
Part 3. Flue Draft Testing Video
At 10 pascals the interior of a room or building is consider outside. Nearly impossible to heat and cool.
