- This is an example of a single story home with an interior HVAC closet containing the cooling system evap coil as well as heater/air handler. The second and third images display the evap coil primary condensate discharge point and configuration. What is the black device being pointed to in the last image and what is its purpose?
- The following are images of a pair of Rheem RTG-84XLN-1 tankless water heaters installed in an exterior brick veneer wall with 2 X 4 wall framing behind it. There are at least two issues clearly visible here that you don’t even need the manufacturer information to determine. What are the two issues?
- This is an image of a new home construction natural gas entry point. The gas distribution piping inside of the home is all black iron. What obvious issue can be seen with this natural gas meter and piping?
- Unfortunately I frequently use this picture as a sample when performing new home final inspections. The arrows point to two 2 X 4 boards fastened to the roof surface. What are these boards called? What purpose are they suppose to serve? What issue do they cause when they are removed?
- These images display a problem valley. What is this valley type called? What problems can it cause? Could anything have been done during construction (possibly even afterward) to correct the issue or at least lessen its effects?
