So, Why Was No Air Blowing From The Kitchen HVAC Register?

There's lots to learn on a Home Inspection. The point is to learn and make decisions and choices. I like to have the Inspection Report done up front on my listings by the Seller. This avoids any last minute surprises, delays or cancellations.

We noticed the kitchen was noticeably cooler when I went in to drop off my tools and start the dishwasher.  So I felt the floor register.  No air was blowing.  So, why was no air blowing from the kitchen HVAC register?

I LOVE STARTING OUT A HOME INSPECTION WITH A QUESTION!

Trying to get the lay out of the geography of the land upstairs, and comparing it to what I found downstairs ...

And making my way around and through furniture and stuff ...

And opening a door to an unfinished area, looking up, and seeing a gap over the ceiling ...

And getting a ladder and trying to fit it into position to have a look ...

And climbing up, reaching over, and, proudly demonstrating my best ballerina pose ...

(which was a sight)

And reaching around a floor joist ...

And adjusting the telephoto lens a bit here and a bit there ...

And guessing what direction to point the camera ...

And using the camera to see what I could not ...

Sight unseen I snapped a bunch of photos with the camera pointed different ways and the telephoto lens adjusted to different positions ...

And, with the luck o' the Hungarian/Scotch (we are a small minority, worthy of many benefits and affirmative action rules) ...

I checked my photo gallery register and found one that confirmed what I thought!

Yep, ducto disconnectedo (that's perfect Spanish)!

Problem solved.  Then I could get on with the rest of the inspection!

It went well.

My recommendation:  your home inspector LOVES a few mysteries during the inspection.  A boring home inspection without mysteries is like a day without sunshine.  Well, not for the buyers, but surely for the inspector!
