 Check out this separated furnace flue (exhaust) pipe I found inside of an attic I was inspecting yesterday here in San Diego. This condition is allowing the byproducts of combustion to include Carbon Monoxide to enter the attic space and not exit the home properly. This is a safety concern that can result in injury or even death!!!

The sellers of this home had no idea this condition even existed.

Thanks Andrew Powell of John Robinson's Inspection Group for sending this picture over.

This home owner installed a number of ceiling fans by taking the power from one half of several half hot receptacles. All of the electrical receptacles were noted either reversed polarity or not functional on the half that used to be connected to the wall switch for the half-hot.

Please remember: If you are not a licensed electrician or have the ability to safely install electrical systems and components, Do Not try it!

Wind chime? Nope, just a very poor water heater flue pipe installation!

This water heater is venting byproducts of combustion directly into this home's garage. This condition is a carbon monoxide hazard and should be repaired immediately by a qualified plumber. Now about that Transite pipe...

We come across them frequently while inspecting homes here in San Diego County.

Pre-cast fireplaces were installed on many homes throughout California during the mid 70′s to the mid 80′s. #homeinspection

Did you know

Ben Franklin wanted the turkey to be the official bird of the US.
He thought turkeys were much more American than bald eagle. Franklin wrote a letter to his daughter that said: “I wish the bald eagle had not been chosen as the representative of our country; his is a bird of bad moral character. #happythanksgiving
