WINTERIZING YOUR ATLANTA HOME

Inspector Jake from Georgia State Inspections talking with Reynolds Wolf of The Weather Channel about Winterizing Your Atlanta Home.

Recently The Weather Channel invited Inspector Jake Accardi of Georgia State Inspections to share some tips on winterizing your home.

Cold weather is no problem, as long as you prepare your home for winter weather.  Winterizing your Atlanta home is relatively inexpensive and can prevent frozen pipes and other problems that require costly home repairs.

There are three major categories of winterizing:  Mechanical, Insulation and Freeze Protection.

Let’s start with Mechanical:

HVAC – Proper maintenance of the HVAC system is key.  A licensed HVAC contractor can help keep your system running at maximum performance with regular inspections.  I recommend scheduling an AC inspection in the spring and a furnace inspection in the fall for the following seasons.  You can also add a programmable thermostat to help save energy.

Air Filters – Change your air filters regularly, paying attention to the air flow direction on the filter package.  If you have a gas furnace, you can help prevent heat exchanger cracks by maintaining proper air flow and changing the air filter regularly with high air flow filters [click to continue…]

The Home Inspection Process

Atlanta Home InspectionThere is plenty to do when buying a Atlanta home and now you may be wondering if you really need a home inspection.  Most real estate professionals will tell you that  a good home inspection is the best investment you can make when evaluating a purchase.  Only a thorough Home Inspection can give you the information that you absolutely need!  And only a qualified Home Inspector can tell you the true condition of the property, the structure, the roof, the electrical, the plumbing, HVAC and major appliances.

Georgia State Inspections wants to help make the home buying process a little easier.  We have put together information about the Home Inspection Process that will make this aspect of buying your next home a piece of cake.

What Is A Home Inspection?

A Home Inspection is a visual inspection of a home made by a certified home inspector who is trained and has experience in evaluating all the component features in a home, and who is able to give a clear and accurate picture of the condition of these components. It is important to remember that a Home Inspection is basically visual in nature, with no intrusive drilling or digging performed. When you and your Home Inspector have completed the Home Inspection, the house must be in the same (or better) condition than when you first began.

A professional Home Inspection is designed to provide you with the information you need to make an informed decision about your potential purchase. You should be able to walk away from the Home Inspection knowing what your immediate major issues are (if any), and what items will need repair or maintenance in the near term. [click to continue…]

Fall is a beautiful time of year in Atlanta.  The temps are mild and the autumn leaves have really changed the landscape.  Perfect weather for opening the windows and giving the HVAC a break.  It’s also a great time to get some work done outside and tackle some important home preventative maintenance projects that will help you avoid expensive repairs.

Tree Survey:  While we are enjoying the autumn colors we should also be surveying our property for dead or damaged trees.  Winter may bring snow or ice and its weight can easily bring down larges branches or entire trees.  Some preventative maintenance in this area could alleviate the risk of huge repair or replacement costs from falling trees.  Also survey the tree branches that may be coming in contact with electrical or phone wires.  Careful pruning can help keep you connected later on.  Remember, safety first!  You may need a professional service to remove large limbs and trees.

Staging Tips for Home SellersFrom Dana’s Desk: 

Every now and then Inspector Jake tells us about something that really impressed him and he recently returned to the office and reported on a home owner’s tidy and creative home staging.  Jake has seen lots of home sellers trying to sell their home and most do a pretty good job at preparing their home for interested prospects.  They round up the clutter, apply fresh coats of paint and keep the home clean for inspection.  It’s the home owners with a creative flair that really get noticed.  And it doesn’t take a fortune, just a few good ideas.

For instance, there is more to declutter than just putting away the dog toys and clearing the horizontal spaces.  Some professional stagers will remove as much as half of an owner’s furniture making the home appear larger.  That may be difficult for owners who occupy the home, but even small adjustments can increase the square footage visibility.  Also consider pulling the furniture away from the walls and create small groupings to open up the room and make the space appear larger.
