Home inspections are a great way to get a detailed look beyond the homeâ€™s basics. The inspector will look at the foundation, roof, electrical, insulation and more â€“ giving a detailed report on the condition and findings as of the date of the inspection. This will help you as you enter into the purchase of your new home or just peace of mind of an already occupied home.
The inspection includes the following major systems:
- Exterior and Roofing
- Electrical Heating and Air Conditioning
- Insulation and Ventilation
In addition to Home Inspections, Housing Services also offers Home Energy Audits. Homeowners can request a single test or service, or full energy audit. A single test is best if you have a specific problem or issue.
Ventilation and Air Flow - A blower door test measures the building tightness and shows how much air infiltrates into a building and helps pinpoint the location.
Infrared Thermal -Thermal imaging can locate insulation deficiencies in walls and other inaccessible locations, heat leaking into an attic or wall, or even locate where radiant piping is located in a concrete floor.
Combustion Gas Leak Detection -Using an analyzer, Penquis can pinpoint gas leaks.
Prices vary depending on the testing required. For more information and pricing call 207-973-3554 or 1-800-215-4942.
