The inspector was really thorough and was patient in explaining to me what he was observing. He showed me where the shutoff valve was for the water and gave recommendations on various things. The report that was provided made sense and pictures were taken of some things that were found. The inspector was also very personable which put me at ease about asking questions. Thank you, Alex and Atlanta Property Inspections!

The inspector Frank came to our house to inspect the deck and provide a list of safety problems. While he was there we asked him to take a look at some termite damage in the attic.  When he went to the attic he spotted problems with a squirrel infestation requiring immediate action to correct for chewed wiring and unsanitary conditions.  We were unaware of this problem.  Frank provided a comprehensive inspection report in PDF format including multiple photos showing deck post deterioration, sagging joists and yes even a picture of the live squirrel in the attic. Frank is totally professional, knows his area of expertise very well and offers sound recommendations on how to correct problems without spending money for unnecessary improvements.  For example he told us the ledger board was in good shape and did not have to be replaced, only secured to the house wall with additional bolts. The small amount we paid for the inspection was well spent because the inspection will end up saving us money in the long run.

Thorough knowledge of items addressed in report. Home inspector was able to communicate any issues found with buyer and help explain the different items and their severity.

WOW! I can't even make this story up. In this very crazy market (June 2021) it seemingly takes 2 week closing (sometimes with *0* days due diligence!) to purchase a home. Anyway, Frank came recommended by another very reputable inspector, and I was fortunate he came!! The home we were looking at for my mother was a 1975 build and within 1 hour of the inspector being there a FIRE from an electrical panel broke out! Frank contained the fire, and was SO calm, had his team address the matter, was in touch with the agent and homeowner. He said in over 20+ years of him inspecting homes nothing like this had ever happened. Anyway the inspection was VERY thorough and Frank handled all matters very professionally. We will be working with Frank and his team on any home inspections in the future. I highly recommend!

This was my first experience with Atlanta Property Inspections. Alex Sozonov was my inspector. Very oriented details and willing to explained all questions with professional knowledge. Report came into my email box late night. Clearly, it has been covered all details. Plus, show up on time.

I called several companies for quotes, and I felt that Atlanta Property Inspections was the most welcoming!  Thereafter, I had a wonderful experience at the inspection. My inspector was thorough, kind, and willing to explain things and answer my questions on site.  He was very knowledgeable and very friendly.  I am glad I did not skip the inspection for this 950 square foot condo, and the review has been very helpful, during my due diligence period in evaluating this potential home.

Frank Cooper and his team from Atlanta Property Inspections, Inc were excellent! They arrived on time  and thoroughly inspected all areas of the property I was considering renting. They found things that needed to be repaired by the landlord before we signed the lease. Frank reviewed his findings with us. He explained all of his concerns, and he patiently answered all of our questions. Then the next day I received a very detailed report that included several pictures and detailed explanations. If you want a kind, knowledgeable, and thorough inspector, don’t hesitate to call Frank Cooper with Atlanta Property. I would highly recommend him! Truly a 5 star company!

Atlanta property inspections gave me a very competitor quote and stuck to it for final pricing. They were able to get someone out to do the inspection so quickly. Frank and James were very thorough and helpful during the process they encouraged me to look at what they found, the good and bad, so I knew exactly what I am buying.  I couldn't have asked for a better inspection experience!

This was our first experience with Atlanta Property Inspections, Frank Cooper was the lead inspector and he was inspecting a new construction one bedroom plus den in Alpharetta for a buyer client of ours. The inspection report was both detailed and comprehensive. We have tried out a few premium home inspection companies over the past year, looking for a good additional inspection resource, and based on our experience with Frank Cooper, I think we have found it.

Top 5 Tankless Water Heater Maintenance Tips

Tankless water systems are an important part of our house, which helps us to save energy by quickly heating the water. To make any items like this last longer, we must maintain them. However, only a few people know how. So, we decided to inform everyone. Throughout this article, we will go through tankless water heater maintenance tips you can follow, like sanitizing the inside of the water heater, cleaning the air filter, flushing the system, checking the water temperature, inspecting the venting system, and how Atlanta Property Inspection can help. Let’s learn.

Sanitizing The Water Heater

To fully maintain your water heater, we must keep it sanitized. Not only is it crucial to our health, but you will see a great increase in the water quality. This is because the minerals that run inside the heater build up, causing potentially significant long-term damage. Sanitizing the water heater once a month is more than enough and will be a very good choice.

Cleaning the Air Filter

Most tankless water systems use a heat exchanger, which helps regulate the water temperature faster. To work properly, this exchanger uses fresh air. However, just like with any filters, over time, the filters in these exchangers can collect dust and debris. This prevents it from effectively functioning. To change the filter, you must turn the power off, locate where the filter is, remove it with the use of a screwdriver, clean it gently by using vacuum cleaners or rinsing it with water, then reinstall it.

Flushing the System

Even if you regularly sanitize your water heater, some minor materials can still build up. This is when we flush the system. By flushing occasionally, we prevent mineral buildup from causing long-term damage. Let’s see how checking the water temperature can help in the next section.

Checking the Water Temperature

Checking the water temperature can be nice to understand if the water heater works properly. Turn on the hot side of the faucet. Check the water temperature. It shouldn’t pass anything above 120°F, or the heater might have a problem.

Inspecting the Venting System

Ventilation is important for tankless water heaters. If the venting system is blocked, you will see a significant decrease in the performance of the heater. The blockage in the ventilation can even result in major health problems. Cleaning the ventilation can be hard. So, call an inspection service to learn if you have a damaged or blocked venting system.
