Hi! from Randy at
Inquiring Eye Home Inspections
You are receiving the inaugural edition of my newsletter. The
newsletters are designed to continue the theme and objective of my
web site, which is to provide you and your clients with an
informational and educational resource on how homes work.
Just like my web
site, the articles in the newsletters will be written by me and
address specific topics that will continue to increase your
knowledge of homes. The topics in the coming months will be; Arc
Fault Circuit Breakers, Tankless or On Demand Hot Water Heaters,
Residential Electrical Wiring, Temperature/Pressure Relief Valves,
and How Glass is Made.
will also be available on my web site and continue to improve the
information available to you from the web site itself. The
newsletters will be bi-monthly and my goal is to have each article
approximately two pages in length.
This month’s addition will be a little different than subsequent
issues in that besides the article, this month also has a letter on
the content and improvements available at the web site itself, and a
link that will give you an opportunity to open up the website
directly. If you have not taken time recently to go to the web site
I encourage you to do so. There are over 200 pages of content
available on every major section of a home. From contaminants to
framing to septic systems it is all there! Your time will be well
If you have associates that would be interested in these materials
and would like to be included in future mailings let me know and I’d
be happy to add their names to the list.
Do You Feel Like Home Inspectors Speak In A Foreign Language?
Are you able to adequately answer your client’s questions when they
ask what radon is or how a septic system operates? The key to
understanding these and many other home operation and home
inspection questions is having a great resource. That resource is
now only a few computer key strokes away. A home inspection web site
with almost 200 pages of material written specifically for Real
Estate agents looking to answer specific questions or broaden their
knowledge, or for clients who are trying to understand how a home
mechanical “system” operates, like air conditioning or a septic
is Inquiring Eye Home Inspections, LLC, and the web site is
information can be found under two titles: Anatomy of a Home, and
Natural but Deadly. Anatomy of a Home has nine separate articles on
everything from Foundations and Framing to Air Conditioning and
Septic Systems. The articles describe how a system operates, and its
key components. Pictures in each article detail the systems key
parts to help better understand the written text. The goal of the
articles is to provide the reader with a working knowledge of how
the systems in a home work. For example, after reading the article
on Septic Systems a client should have a working knowledge of a
Septic System, and be able to understand a septic contractor, at a
home inspection, as he describes the septic system at the house they
are about to purchase. A Glossary of Key Terms is also provided
after the Electrical, Septic System and Roofing sections.
Natural but Deadly is articles on the possible environmental issues
found in a home. From Radon to Asbestos to Mold the articles
describe the contaminants origins and their possible human health
effects. Each article also provides information on how to resolve
any issues that may be present.
Two other valuable tools that are provided at the web site are: 1).
A six page check list for clients that are planning to put their
house on the market. The checklist includes easy fixes that the
homeowner can resolve before they put their house up for sale. The
checklist can be found as an attachment at the Inspection Overview
portion of the web site. 2). An attachment to the Well section of
Plumbing is a description of acceptable levels, potability issues
and chemicals found in well water.
In addition future smaller articles will be added to the web site
from newsletters. Some future topics are going to be Tankless Water
Heaters, and Power Vents for fireplaces and boilers/furnaces. If you
have a topic that you think would be relevant and helpful please
drop me an email. My intent is to make this the most complete
informational web site available.
Please take a few minutes and explore. Your time will be well spent.
