Inspecting for Buyers
Sorry for the Long Delay, I have been very busy with Inspections.
I inspected a Double a Month or so back and one side was mostly incomplete.
The Second Inspection I again looked at the outside first as I always do then move to the basement for the Major Mechanical s. I observed the Furnace flue pipe Venting into the rear chimney... But wait a minute here I did not recall seeing a Chimney nor Flue pipe on the rear of theses units.
Went back outside and double checked and no vents where observed. I turned the Furnace on and grabbed my Thermal Imaging Camera and headed for the 3rd floor.
The 3rd floor / Attic is finished and on the back wall was the chimney. A chimney that was taken down below the roof line by the Contractor preforming the work.
Upon a closer look I could barley see the Clay flue liner enter the ceiling area. I used the Thermal Camera and sure enough the Furnace is vented into the Ceiling of the attic. That's correct... All of the Carbon Monoxide was entering the Attic space. I also leaned from the buyer that this area is going to be their Bedroom.
I provide Thermal Imaging on every Inspection for the buyers safety.. Why? Because what you can't see with your eyes can harm you. Below you will see what everyone would have viewed, beside it is what I see.
Who's Protecting you?
