  1. No matter which you choose, remember one thing. These programs are generic and for the most part may not meet the minimum reporting standards required by your state. Make sure you go through each section and make sure it complies with your local requirements. Anatol
  2. Give the serial numbers to all the companies that do calibration or repairs. If it come in, they will call you. It is a small neighborhood...
  3. What James said. Around here, among certain inspector, the phrase is "Mold is Gold"
  4. An IR camera is the best method to see the field. You could also take of your shoes and socks to feel the benefit of a warm floor. Anatol
  5. Thermal image resolution for this unit is 80x60. That is the same resolution as the E4 which sells for $999. Anatol
  6. Probably not, but the corrosion could cause a leak. Anatol
  7. Typically, the fan should be in unoccupied area, attic or the exterior and the vent should terminate above the roof line
  8. Fellow Inspectors, I see a lot of flips with upgraded (100) and up-sized (150-200) panels. Most of the time they are not adding arc fault protection on the required circuits. When I ask the local inspectors, they say that if the new panel is located with in 6' of the previous panel, they do not require upgraded protection to the circuits. At the same time they do require all outlets to be upgraded to tamper resistant. Is this a local thing or part of the NEC? Anatol
  9. They are all grounds, Thanks for the info. Anatol

  11. The bare aluminum and copper is not insulated...
  12. I found a panel with conductors touching and crossing the main feeders. I know this is not a good idea, but is there a code that covers this? Getting a server error and can't upload the picture, will try later... Anatol
  13. Thanks all... I'll update my client. Anatol
  14. Fellow Inspectors, I have a question about windows with built in j channel or self flashing windows. I called these windows as missing J channel. The builder is saying they area properly installed. This is new construction with vinyl siding. All comments are welcome.

  15. John, Get a 1' extension cable and leave your tester plugged into that. That will reduce the wear and tear. Anatol
