I am in the process of becoming a licensed home inspector through InterNACHI. I have been in the home building industry, in one form or another, since the late 80s. I am currently purchasing whatever equipment I might need that I do not already own. What do you suggest with regards to a circuit analyzer/tester?
How about a combustible gas analyzer?

Thanks Roy! Any suggestions for a circuit analyzer: SureTest, Extech, etc. Not looking for the top of the line, but quality.

Of the types of tools you mention, starting out, you need the following (I’m listing the least expensive items for you just starting out):
Once you start making money you can add a circuit analyzer (I like the Extech

Use your nose to detect combustible gas leaks. You can use a bottle of bubbles to pinpoint them

Even starting out, don’t scrimp on your flashlight, camera and ladders.

Thanks for the information Chuck! I will have to purchase a gas detector as I do not have a sense of smell.
