Re: Does Anyone Know What This is Called?

#1 your ignorance does not make it wrong.
#2 Nothing says you need a GFCI in a bathroom if it was not required at time of installation.

You can't make people change **** just because you think...

Re: Scorch marks

Realize soldering HVAC piping requires about 900 degrees more heat to flow the type solder used.

No reason to scorch the equipment though. Poor workmanship.

If it is just a little burn, I bet...

Re: tools to read water temp

No, it's not about emissivity at all. I would assume that you correct for that as required.

Re: 100 amp Pushmatic Electri-Center

1. Who cares what others think and do?
2. No one is required by us to upgrade anything. If you see that there is an issue (and you can document it) put it in the report. The rest of the...

Re: Low voltage wiring

One of the reasons I do not inspect low-voltage wiring is because they are generally attached to some type of control device which is programmed.

Re: 65 degree rule for R-410A central AC units?

Well, not really.

Review of Inspection Standards (yours may vary), does not, and often excludes "Performance" evaluation by the HI.
