Reveal Pro: a home inspector’s review

- The Reveal Pro also has a respectable 300-lumen light built in, which is quite impressive for an add-on feature. Again, this is a great feature. I really wish that my main thermal camera, the FLIR E6, had this feature. . I compare other thermal cameras to the E6 because it’s my camera of choice.

FLIR ONE Pro: a home inspector’s review

- 0 pCi/L at houses with properly installed, active radon systems running. . The only way to know if you have a high level of radon is to test. So what do I tell people about active radon mitigation systems? I tell them the same thing. To date, I’ve never found radon levels over 4. If I were buying a home and the radon mitigation system appeared to be properly installed and functioning, I’d probably skip the radon test… but I’m a risk-taker. I may have a higher tolerance for risk than others ..More

Ten years of blogging

- Sharlene gave me a few ideas, so I reluctantly agreed. . com. At the beginning of 2008, a local Realtor® by the name of Sharlene Hensrud asked me to be a guest blogger on her website, HomesMSP. I knew blogging was a good thing, but I was still a bit hesitant because I had no idea what I’d write about. I wrote my first blog post on March 31st, 2008. The topic was Home Inspections for Home Sellers ..More
