Four Point Inspection
Insurance companies have been asking home owners to pay for this type of inspection if a home is exceeding 25 years old. The age requirement depends on the insurance agencies. While performing this type of inspection we look at 4 areas of the house.
4-point inspections focus on four main areas of your home:
- HAVC (Heating, Ventalation, and Air Conditioning)
- Electrical wiring and panels
- Plumbing connections and fixtures
A licensed home inspector will evaluate the working order and age of these systems to be recorded for the insurance companies. Any deficiencies will also be recorded and the client may be asked by the insurance company to replace any of the systems if deficient.
Having a four point inspection could potentially help homeowners save on insurance costs as well as maintain safety for your family and pets. Contact Florida Home Inspections today to find out more benefits of home inspection.
