Are the good days really over for good? Home inspection Hobbs N. M.
This has been a really frustrating couple of weeks for Desert Sun Home Inspections in Carlsbad New Mexico.
I was contacted to perform a home inspection on a home in Hobbs New Mexico. This inspection should have been one of many that was a simple inspection.
But when arriving at the home there was issues from the get go.
This home has been "worked on by three different contractors since 2008".
When inspecting the furnace I noticed it has issues.
Installed in 2010. The furnace installer did not install the unit properly.
The furnace flue stack was falling off spilling C O gasses into the home.
This is a issue that just should not exist.
Then to make matters worse the A/C condesent line was wrong. Plug the drain was open to let gasses from the sewer line into the home.
See the cap on the right? It is broken intenionally.
The luine has no Trap in it to keep gasses put of the system.
This furnace must had been installed without a permit.
This is just a bad install.
The gas line to the furnace has no Sediment trap either.
This was in a home with no C O detectors in the home.
The water heater that was installed in 2009 has many of the same issues as the furnace. But the good news is the stack was installed properly.
Are the days of a contractor doing a quality installation really gone for good?
This is just the first post about this home. The home has a total of 29 Issues with the home.
So the question remains, Are the good days really over for good.
This is why you always get a "FULL Home Inspection" by a certified inspector. For the peace of mind.
