Choosing An Inspector
Inspections by the Gas Safety
branch are infrequent during new construction:
Interface issues between the B.C. Building Code and the B.C. Gas
Code mean that potentially dangerous conditions can exist in any
building, including brand new ones.
Healthy Houses need attention to gas and combustion safety issues.
Be sure your home inspector is well-versed in gas safety,
ventilation and building code issues. That means real gas training
at accredited BC educational institutes not a 5 minute internet
training module. Please click ABOUT US
Intermittent low-level carbon monoxide concentrations are not
unusual in Lower Mainland homes. A CMHC survey of 660 Canadian
gas heated homes found that over 10% of them showed prolonged
venting failure or spillage on at least one occasion during a three
month monitoring period.
