I had Jeff and his team install a split system air conditioning this past week. I waited a few days to write this review to give time to see how things were working and to allow time for the official inspection by the municipality. Lee Air did such professional work that the inspector even made special mention of the great job they did, both inside and out. The installers went beyond the call of duty and fixed some inferior work on the plenum that had been left over from the original installers. The system is working great and I couldn't be happier with the whole experience. These guys are the best!

we called him in the summer, out AC was not cooling..... he spent a hour checking an testing.... the final verdict was the units were 16 years old and there was nothing he could do to make them perform any better... ( a lot of other contractors would have put more freon in, which would have blown the compressor)... we talked and decided to wait till it was cooler..... Art replaced the interior unit, outside unit, and all of the ducts in 2 1/2 days.... building inspector was happy, no questions or concerns on his part.... the job came in at the price quoted, no surprises or EXTRAS..... GREAT JOB.... we will use them again.

I have known John Brooks for 6 years. He takes care of my home in Fort Myers Florida while I am in Canada. He does an outstanding job for me and takes the worry out of owning foreign property. John goes out of his way to assist me. He helps me with projects around the house that I can't take care of and always ensures my house is clean and ready for any of my arrivals. John is honest, reliable, trustworthy and a very understanding person. I would recommend him to anyone who requires home watch service or House inspections. He is very easy to deal with, and always arrives on time and in a friendly manner. Your decision to use John Brooks will alleviate any concerns you may have about the job you require as he will do his best for you and be very friendly in the process.

Todd is extremely easy to work with! He is punctual and thorough but careful not to disturb or disrupt the people on site. He is experienced with all the many considerations involved in producing an inspection report that can actually help make an informed decision about a home. Todd is also very knowledgeable about construction. He worked well with the real estate agents and everyone that was involved in helping me find a house. I didn’t realize how many things were involved in properly maintaining a home or the importance of knowing the average life expectancy of things like an AC unit. Todd helped me understand what things would need to be handled right away and what things I could deal with in the future. Todd was able to get the finished report to me the next morning. The report is an online report that I can access and print as much as like, which is very useful. I continue to use the report to remind me of maintenance issues. The inspection was a great value and so is the report. The price for the inspection was very reasonable. I would highly recommend Todd and Tech Inspection Services!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is a home inspection?

A home inspection is a visual inspection performed by a trained professional to determine the condition of a home’s main elements. The inspection usually takes several hours, during which the professional takes multiple photos and notes, tracking information for a final report. After the inspection, the pro will create a printed report, complete with photos and detailed information, summarizing the condition of the house. A home inspection is often used by potential home buyers prior to purchase to determine if there are larger issues (such as dry rot or a faulty foundation) that are not immediately visible to the untrained eye but that would cost a lot of money to resolve. Home inspections are also used by real estate agents and home sellers to address any concerns before putting a home on the market. Longtime homeowners can also schedule a home inspection to get a snapshot of their current home condition and identify any issues that need to be addressed. A home inspection is not a legal document that can be used for divorce or estate settlements, nor can it be used to secure loans or mortgages.

How do you find a good home inspector?

A home inspection should tell you the true condition of a home. A competent home inspector closely inspects your home’s structure and foundation, looks for termites and signs of problems like mold, checks the wiring to ensure it’s in good condition, and investigates the HVAC system, among other items. To find a good home inspector, first research whether home inspection is licensed in your area; not all states require licensure.

If there is no regulatory body that licenses home inspection in your state, there are other ways to make sure you are hiring a trustworthy professional. Carefully look into the person’s reviews and ask for references. Ask if they are committed to continuing education, and whether they are active members in any reputable home inspector organizations. Some organizations that recognize and/or certify home inspectors are the American Society of Home Inspectors, National Association of Certified Home Inspectors, and American Home Inspectors Training. Don’t be shy about asking to see credentials and licensing.

What should be included in a home inspection?

A complete home inspection involves a visual investigation of all major elements that make up your home. A home inspection is a vital part of buying or selling a home to ensure you’re not accidentally buying a termite-infested home or one with major structural defects. Paying for an inspection before purchasing a home can save you a lot of money in the long run. The national average home inspection cost is $310, with prices ranging higher or lower based on your location and the square footage of your home. After performing a walk-through inspection, the pro should provide you a printed report — complete with photos and recommendations — detailing what’s in good condition, what would benefit from minor repairs, and what needs immediate attention. Home inspection pros know how to spot trouble areas, but they’re not licensed contractors, electricians or plumbers, so they may suggest you hire a licensed pro to address specific problems. Here are the main components that a home inspection covers:

  • Home structure
    • Foundation, grading and drainage, roof covering, roof structure, interior and exterior attic walls, ceilings and floors, interior and exterior doors, windows, stairways, fireplace and chimney, porches, balconies, decks, attached carports, and crawl space.
  • Electrical
    • HVAC system, heating equipment, cooling equipment, ductwork and vents, fixtures and switches, branch circuits, receptacles, service entrance and panels.
  • Plumbing
    • Water heater and equipment, drains, waste systems, vents, and plumbing fixtures.
  • Appliances
    • Garage door openers, garbage disposal, dishwasher, exhaust range, range hood, bathroom exhaust fans, cooktop, oven and microwave.

How much does it cost to get a house appraised and inspected?

Home appraisals and home inspections both assess your home and provide a report summarizing the condition or value of your home based on key measurements. Unlike a home inspection for the sale of a property, a home appraisal is used for loan applications, property value assessment for sales or settlements (divorce, estate, etc.), and taxes and insurance. If you’re having your home appraised for lending purposes, you’ll likely need a state-certified appraiser, so be sure to your research their credentials. Nationally, the average cost for a home appraisal is $340.

If you’re buying or selling a home, having a professional home inspection can be an invaluable tool for price-setting and negotiation, as well as learning what repairs are necessary. The national average home inspection cost is $310, ranging higher or lower depending on the inspection company, your location and the size of your home. Other factors that can affect cost are additional inspection services and pathogen testing. Here are some examples of average home inspection costs in various parts of the country:

  • Home inspection in New York City: $425 or more.
  • Condo inspection in New York City: $200 or more.
  • Home inspection in Central Texas: $250 for homes up to 2,000 square feet.
    • $275 for homes from 3,001-4,000 square feet.
    • $300 for homes from 4,001-5,000 square feet.
    • $325 for homes 5,001 square feet and up, plus 10 cents per additional square foot.
  • Home inspection in Los Angeles: $199-$299 or more.

How long does it take to do a home inspection?

On average, you can expect a standard home inspection to take two to three hours. Your house size can affect inspection length, as can requesting additional services such as sprinkler system inspections, outbuilding inspections, radon testing, crawl space inspections, or pool house inspections. During the home inspection, the professional will be taking photos and looking in and around all parts of your home. The inspector will then compile a report that may be more than 20 pages. You should receive this report back within a few days to a week. The report should detail everything from minor imperfections and maintenance recommendations to major defects that need to be resolved as soon as possible, like structural failures or a leak in the basement. Your report should include photos and clearly outlined information about all major elements inspected, as well as recommendations for next steps.
