When you vent...vent properly.
It seems there are more and more problems with venting a home properly.
It never ceases to amaze me that there can be so many code violations on a single home.
As in my last post about how the mechanical inspector did'nt even go in the attic, there seems to be a trend of this type of "non-inspection" going on.
You get paid to do a job. Simply put... DO YOUR JOB.
This home was built in 2005. This is a look at the "dryer vent that do'es exit the home at the roof.
Problem is it do'es not have a back draft flapper door. This keeps unwanted wind and air pressure from entering the home.
Then there are other issues with the homes exhaust venting as well.
None of the bath or utility room fans are connected. They are simply there but not hooked up.
Another issue with this home that had a certificate of occupancy approved is the attic power vent fans.
These fans are thermostat controlled. When the temperatures reach the "set temp" then the fans will come on.
But in this case the fans cannot do their job properly. The openings are too small for the perimeter of the fan.
Even a 20% loss of "open air space could mean a higher heating and cooling bill.
Remember if you inspect, always look and inspect the attic and it's components properly.

Have a good day every one.
