Home Inspection Surprise

If you are buying or selling a home you should have your home thoroughly inspected.  Even if you are not in the real estate market, it’s the time of year to start your maintenance chores. I am always amazed at what you find once you start really looking.

I was peering out the kitchen window the other day admiring the horses playing in the pasture.  I noticed something about the air conditioning shroud that didn’t look right but was distracted and forgot about it.  This morning we had our bi-annual maintenance check up of our air conditioning system.  It’s not a cheap date and I have considered not renewing it this time.

Imagine how startled he must have been walking through the tall shrubs,  getting ready to remove the cover and had this surprise staring back at him.

I have now reaffirmed my belief that everyone should have a home inspection and regular maintenance. I have also concluded that it’s a good thing to renew my HVAC maintenance agreement and I am glad I don’t do HVAC maintenance for a living.  It takes a lot to stop a Trane…technician – just saying.
