We are relocating from out of state and we were in need of an inspection with a very tight turn around. We received incredibly thorough reporting and an availability to answer questions quickly. Cary Cooper’s professional and expert insight saved us from a potential health hazard. I would very much recommend Atlanta Property Inspection for any of your inspection needs!

Dustin was very knowledgeable and friendly and made my client feel confident in his explanations.  He was quick to point out the positives of the home he was inspecting.  His report was delivered within 18 hours of the inspection and had plenty of photos and very easy explanations in laymen's terms. I highly recommend Atlanta Property Inspections.

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.

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.

Dustin is VERY Detailed Oriented and found items and suggestions on the home that I would have never thought of, the report provided very good insight on how to move forward with the sale of the home!  The staff at API was great to work with!

My client used the company for their home inspection during their due diligence period. Jeremy and his partner were very kind and accommodating with answering questions. The report was very thorough and I like that they also note positive things about the homes in their report as well and not just what's wrong with the house. You can read the good and the bad.

Atlanta Property Inspections, Inc. was referred to us by our realtor for our home inspection. Our inspector was Cary Cooper. He really took the time to answer all of our questions about his findings. We didn't feel rushed or that any question was too silly. He gave us peace of mind with a few of our concerns and was honest, even if we weren't to thrilled with the news. Overall, it was a great experience and we would definitely use (and refer)  Atlanta Property Inspections, Inc. in the future for any inspection needs.

Dustin was absolutely amazing. He did such a thorough job and was super friendly and helpful in explaining everything to me as a first-time homeowner. Highly recommend this company! Very timely and professional throughout the entire process as well!

Have used Atlanta Property Inspections several times for my buyers.  Their team is always very thorough and educational for the new home owners.  Much information is shared about past/current codes, potential issues and how to have the issues repaired.  I will continue to use Atlanta Property Inspectors for future inspections, and my clients have been very happy with their services as well!

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.
