Water heater wiring- It is so special. Wenatchee and Quincy Home Inspection   Well as a home inspector in the land of electricity almost every water heater I see is an electric water heater.  I actually feel pretty lucky about that. I don’t have to worry about draft hoods, B-vents, combustion air, drip legs, carbon monoxide and all the other fun that goes with gas heaters.   But it has not gone unnoticed that the simple act of getting the electrical power to the water heater seems to be a bit of a challenge to perform correctly.   I see many a water heater that has been improperly wired. So here is a few that may make you wonder.         They really are not that hard to do and do right, but often people are in the “just make it work” modality.       So in the rush to get the hot shower ...

Screwed- Weekend warriors and decks!                        Quincy Home Inspection ServicesI have a saying if a see a deck done completely right I will jump up and down and make sure that whole world knows it. As a home inspector I just never see them done completely right. Decks seems to be one of those components of the home that just do not receive the attention to detail they deserve.In many cases this lack of detail may have very minor consequences but as the deck ages or if the deck goes up in height these details can rear their ugly head.Here is one detail that needs to be always evaluated… the joist hanger fasteners.Joist hangers are pretty common on most decks and are a great at what they are designed for, if installed correctly.                                           These ...

Grounding to Water Pipes- Electrical Inspections- Wenatchee and Quincy Home InspectionsWhen performing a home inspection and evaluating the electrical system I am always trying to confirm if a grounding system is proper. The Washington State Home Inspector Standards of Practice states (WAC 308-408C-110 Electrical system.)-A home Inspector must:(b) Report (i) The existence of a connected service-grounding conductor and service-grounding electrode when same can be determined.  (ii) When no connection to a service grounding electrode can be confirmed.The purpose of the grounding electrode is to be connected to earth and to the electrical equipment so it establishes a zero difference of potential between the earth and the electrical equipment. This zero difference of potential helps stabili...

The Quincy (WA) Farmer Consumer Awareness Day is coming soon.  On September 10, the 31st annual Farmer Comsumer Awareness Day will be in Quincy, Washington. This is a great opportunity to learn a bit (or bunch) about what farmers do to get the food from field to store.  There are a great many activities (you cannot see it all in one try). From parades and car shows to equipment viewing and tours, there is something for everyone.  And you can't forget the food choices. Plan your trip now, so as not to miss this fantastic community program.  If you haven't made up your mind yet, check out the following: Did you know Washington state farmers and food processors produce more than 300 crops and packaged/processed foods? From our famed export, apples, to lentils, sweet cherries, and potatoes,...

On December 14th, Quincy was host to a Rural Economic Development Summit.  The event featured 10 speakers and included some of the state and region's top economists, educators, tech industry leaders and others.  The experts agreed that Quincy, which is one of the few bright spots in the State of Washington's economy right now, has done things right.  Quincy provided key infrastructure to lure high-tech industries and the resulting payoff is millions of dollars in tax revenues. Providing key infrastructure is different than burdening commercial development with impact fees, complex permitting processes and uncertainty.  Which do you think generates more revenue for a city?  A development burdened by impact fees, complex permitting and high upfront development costs that never gets built....

Nestled in the Columbia River Gorge, the little town of Quincyhas a booming economy resulting from new high tech jobs brought in with the move of some big internet companies.Last April, headquarters for Microsoft's MSN Instant Messenger opened up.  Intuit (Quickbooks) has already broken ground for a new business complex and Yahoo is locating a major data center branch in Quincy.  Apparently these "big guys" are attracted to the affordability of electrical power and raw land.  Quincy is located in Grant County, not far from Moses Lake ... between Wenatchee and Ephrata.  Housing and vacant land real estate are very affordable when compared with the metro areas of Seattle, Spokane and Vancouver.
