Home Hot Spots According to Home Inspectors (part 2 of 2)

The plumbing system is an important area because no homebuyer would want to encounter any problem with it. The home inspector would have to check water pressure through flushing toilets and turning on different faucets at the same time. Several inspectors may go as far as checking the septic system. However, in most cases, septic and sewerage inspections would have to be referred to specialists who know more about them.

Electrical system is always a cause of alarm. Many home fires occur because of faulty electrical wires. Inspectors should be able to identify such faulty and troublesome wiring. Circuit breakers and panels should be configured appropriately to run adequately and cater to the house needs. There is also a need to check the quality and safety of receptacles, outlets, lighting systems, and electrical box. Professional electricians are needed to do a more thorough and more accurate electrical system check.

Other hot spots for home inspections include cooling and heating systems, foundation and structure, and appliances. Security alarms like smoke and burglar detectors should also be in great and functional condition. Overall, you should hire a home inspector with the aim to make necessary repair and maintenance so your home would be saleable. Home inspections could never be tampered no matter how hard you try.

Homebuyers always have the option to commission their own home inspection so that they could identify potential problems in the home that may have been missed and overlooked by your inspection.
