Professional home inspectors report on issues very similar to these when inspecting attics.

  • Does existing insulation contain a vapor barrier?  Vapor barriers should always face the heated side of a ceiling or wall.

  • Is there proper and clear ventilation?  High-low ventilation is the most desirable and the more insulation, the more beneficial it is.

9 Tips to Prevent Mold

Mold


The key to preventing mold is simple: Moisture control


Mold. The very word is enough to make a person cringe.

TV Tuning


You could save a bundle on your electric bill by reducing the brightness on your HDTV.  Many are shipped set at “retail mode” for optimum picture clarity in a showroom.  Go to your TV’s setup menu and look for “home mode” or some other way to tune down the brightness.

Gas Safety Tip


Remember that if a gas appliance is moved or replaced, make sure the gas line is plugged or capped even if the line is isolated by a valve.  Valves can be bumped or mistakenly turned on.  If the line is uncapped, the result could be a fire or explosion.
