What is the biggest mistake you see buyers make when considering a home purchase?
FAILING TO OBTAIN A HOME PERFORMANCE DIAGNOSTICS REPORT!
This report provides valuable information about the current condition of a home and possible future issues. Essentially, it provides a detailed checkup of the home.
Unlike a typical home inspection, the home is tested under dynamic conditions in order to show how it breathes (are there leaks) and the condition of it’s heart (furnace/AC systems), arteries (ducts), and coat (insulation). The tests also show how effective and efficient air filtration is in the home, ensures all gas and combustion appliances are leak free, checks quality of building materials and effectiveness of the exhaust ventilation.
In case of any indoor air quality concerns, a separate assessment is performed. Samples for mold, bacteria or any other contaminant are processed by a registered lab. The report also includes a list of improvements recommended to rectify deficiencies found and a post renovation/ improvements test can be performed to verify the results. – Andrej Bagar, www.FluxAir.ca
