  1. Yes I saw that--or I SEE THE SNAKE THAT ALMOST BIT ME!!!! HAHAHAH!! Long week this last week and I was playing catch up on a Sunday with more Inspections. SORRY but I just Plain Missed it or in other words i guess my mind was tired and needed confirmation from someone that was fresh. Thanks again guys and yes in TEXAS this is quite common to just use the heat strips--now if I live back in Nova Scotia- like i did 8 years ago then that would be different. But with the price of oil in Canada back then I might have wanted those Heat strips-[:-magnify. I was spending about $600-$800 ju
  2. Yes I think your right....Actually the Thermostat was a rather old Circular DIAL TYPE thermostat.. Thanks for pointing the obvious out to me... This was the panel tag Image Insert: 52.54 KB Anyways I want to thank you for the pointer--I should have put 2 and 2 together to figure that one out. But I just wanted to be sure. Thanks again DP
  3. Wow--I can't believe i am having a hard time trying to identify a Condenser. I guess this is really my weakest area. 1. I inspected a home today and in looking in the Condenser i could not locate the valve (identifying it as a heat pump). It looks like a normal AC electric condenser. The home is all electric -so wouldn't this unit have to be a heat pump? or can there be an electric condenser with an electric air handler with just heat strips? Sorry for the dumb questions but i dont think i have ever seen this yet. But there will be alot of things i will see with every inspection--i
  4. Your RIGHT Hausdok--I can admit when I want to be lazy-if you want to call a spade a spade... I work everyday 12 hours a day and when I am not working at the hospital I am doing home inspections. I don't have any free time(NONE- i work every weekend as well)hardly to even spend with my family. Heck I am just now returning to this forum today since first posting. I do appreciate your cander and I don't want to start any flaming wars. PEACE !!!! I did find a fine site that offered me 16 hours CE education and it was only $205 as I don't really have the time to look around much(for the free
  5. Unless I am missing something here guys 1. The Forum listed by hausdok would have to picked apart what is CE and what is not- Although I appreciate the input? 2. The TREC website has a list of Companys That offer CE courses from providers that charge BIG BUCKS !!! I am looking in more of the line of FREE CE's --surely there are some out there? I have two professional licenses for the State of Texas and the other is in the medical field in which the CEU's are almost always free. for example BLS(basic life support) or ACLS(advanced cardiovascular life support)....which offers
  6. Hello Everyone, I was just wondering about a good site that offers CE's for those of us that live in Texas? I have found one or two sites that offer 16 CE's for BIG $$ --but thought i would come here to see what you guys know. Thanks for any information. DP
  7. Scott how did you guess that..yes it is for fidelity. Wow your right i will go high on everthing and I should be good. thanks Guys DP
  8. Hello, I was wanting a little help in getting a closer look at a cost of repairs sheet for Texas. I am starting to do inspections for a company out of PA that wants a repair cost for all deferred items and repair items. I usually never comment on the repair cost itself besides small things like GFCI plugs or anti-siphon devices. Does anyone out there have a good "Cost of Repair sheet for those of us in Texas"?? Thanks DP
  9. Thank You Hausdok Now I can finish this report. DP
  10. Hey guys Need a little help with the age of the condenser Heil model #HAC236AKA1 Furnace Model #NTC6075FBA2 Ser#L011978060 I think I have figured out the Furnace to be around 1997 and it is a 3 ton from the condenser. But I can't seem to place a year on that model # Any help I forgot to get the serial number from the Condenser if your wondering. Thanks DP PS--I went back to the house tonight and got the Ser# to the condenser #L011734754
  11. Jon, You are correct---I took a course from AHIT in Arlington,Texas(BTW the new stadium looks Kick A**for the Cowboys) last august or july its been awhile I cant remember exactly when but yes they for sure push the idea of on site reporting as the niche to your success with other inspectors in your area. I mean why choose me? what is it that I can offer a client than what they are already getting from their(realtors) inspectors they have used for years. I and many others call this a unique selling point and one in which i think i will be able to accomplish. I am very competent with th
  12. Wow, good info guys and thanks for your inputs. I am glad to know its not just me that has taken longer than 3-4 hours to get through the home---I thought I was just being too detailed. and your right Randy--I sometimes find myself having ADD moments staring into floors and ceilings for sometimes over an hour and finding the same thing i saw only ten minutes into the assessment. Then thats when i almost become lost as to what to do next----uh now I'm behind and oh no I'm going to be late to my next appt.---and then i feel i am doing a disservice to the folks that are there for the fi
  13. Help Please from all you Veterans, I Dont know if this thread is in the right spot but I thought i would ask for some help here. 1. I currently live in Texas and follow the TREC guidelines for reporting although I currently give a much more thorough report than just the min. requirement set forth by the state. 2. I am using the SW Whisper Reporter which i think is a great and wonderful tool for on site reporting. I am giving the report on site and in the hands of the customer at time of inspection. 3. I am NEW to the field and seem lost everytime i walk up to a house. Almost li
