Michael Casey with Michael Casey and Associates will spend the day with us presenting on...
Air Conditioning and Heat Pump Inspections: This two-hour session with Mike Casey will cover the inspection of air conditioning and heat pumps exclusively. We will discuss identifying components, air flow, modalities and evidences of failures and installations. This session will review a typical installation of a modern air-conditioning unit and heat pump. We will cover unit disconnects, heat movement, indoor and outdoor coils, temperature splits, zone controls, thermostats and ductwork. This course is intended for home inspectors who want an in depth understanding of both how to identify and report deficiencies in and around air conditioners and heat pumps and why they are deficient.
New Plumbing Rules and Components: This two-hour session presented by Michael Casey will explore various newer plumbing product introductions and their function with respect to intended performance. We will also discuss various new plumbing related regulations and issues, including chloramine EPDM degradation. Additionally, we will discuss modalities and evidences of failures and/or improper installations and review several actual case studies. Our emphasis will be the importance of keeping up to date with all systems to be a cutting-edge inspector.
Home Inspector Safety: This two-hour session will explore the various situations inspectors (and their clients) can encounter during the inspection and how to be more prepared. We will discuss modalities of potential hazardous situations including ladders, arc flash, contaminants and others. Our emphasis will be the importance of risk management for the inspector from where to park, ladder safety to personal protection equipment.
