Inspections are not just for buying a home.
Almost everyday we find a problem for which the homeowner says "I had that fixed back in... "
We all want to believe that when someone comes into our home to provide a service, they will do the work honestly. Many contractors do provide good services. But just like any profession there are some who like to take advantage of people.
Several things you can do to avoid problems are:
1) Check out the person before you hire them.
2) Contact the BBB to see if complaints have been filed.
3) Contact references. Don't just read the web site, or letters in a binder.
Most of all have the work verified. The photograph above is of a supply vent which should be going to the living room. The Owner purchased two HVAC units, but you can see how well they verified their work. It's obvious they did not check for proper airflow and temperature following installation.

We recently found a customer's flue vent missing on her heater, leaking carbon dioxide into the home. She was feeling ill a lot over the fall. She was lucky.
