Hey everyone, hope your all doing ok.
I came across something that I found puzzling and I’m still learning so looking for some clarity.
I inspected a single family house built late 50’s / early 60’s and one of the first things I do when I get to the main service panel is do a quick test with my non contact tester just to make sure that the whole panel is not energized. This one happens to show that it is as the light went on and the beeping sound went off. So I decided to note this and not inspect further.
However, the agent (pre-listing inspection - seller agent) touched the door and the panel (for whatever reason) and nothing happened. He was not wearing gloves or anything.
Was my tester incorrect or is there something I’m missing as I don’t understand. Here are some photos.
Appreciate any feedback. Looking to learn.
