General Home Inspection

General Home Inspection

It’s a good idea to have your home inspected once or twice per year to ensure that all of its plumbing, electric, and HVAC systems are operating smoothly, and appliances are running as they should. You can trust American Home Maintenance for a general home inspection to check all of your appliances, fixtures, and systems. Let us know what you’d like to have inspected, and we’ll take a look. As a handyman company specializing in home maintenance services, there’s little that we can’t fix.

Heating, Ventilation, & Air Conditioning

Furnace System Maintenance

You should have your furnace inspected, cleaned, and maintained every year, before it comes on for the winter months. We inspect the electrical components, burner, and blower motor of your furnace to ensure all parts are in tip-top shape. We can also oil the moving components of your furnace to keep things running efficiently. We check the air filter of your HVAC system, and we’ll clean the burner and check the pilot or automatic ignition of your system. Furnace maintenance helps to improve the efficiency of your heating system, and it may prevent an unexpected repair or failure when you need warm, comfortable air the most.

Boiler and Radiator Maintenance

If you have a boiler system instead of a furnace system, you’ll require different maintenance. We can check the plumbing of your boiler and radiators, and we can drain and refill your boiler to keep it free from sediment that can cause inefficiencies or an obstruction in your heating system lines. We can also check your thermostat to ensure that it triggers a heating cycle at the right time, for the right length of time.

Air Conditioner System Maintenance

Your air conditioner system should be inspected to ensure that it has enough refrigerant in the system, and the evaporator coil should be monitored to ensure that it won’t freeze over (which can cause problems with the compressor). We’ll inspect your fan motors, the compressor, the refrigerant level, the electrical components, and the filter of your system to ensure that there aren’t any issues. We’ll also oil moving parts, and can replace the air filter as necessary.

Water & Plumbing

Water Heater Flush and Inspection

Your water heater shouldn’t be leaking, and it should be flushed regularly to ensure that it doesn’t collect harmful sediment that can damage the system and deplete its efficiency. We can inspect your water heater to ensure that the burner and pilot are clean and operating as they should. Plus, we can perform a flush to remove harmful sediment. If we identify a leak, we can perform repairs, or recommend a water heater replacement if your water heater is outdated.

Plumbing and Sump Pump Inspection

From your water main to your fixtures, your plumbing should never leak. We can inspect the plumbing, appliances, and fixtures throughout your home for leaks and other issues, and we can perform repairs and replacements to keep your home from costly water damage. We’ll also inspect appliances, including your sump pump (if you have one), to ensure that they are operational and efficient.

General

General Repairs and More

From electrical repairs to gutter repairs to deck maintenance and much, much more — if you need help with the upkeep of your home, you’ll only need to keep one number handy: ours. We provide a myriad of services so that you can keep your home in tip-top shape without calling contractor after contractor. Count on your reliable, local handyman with American Home Maintenance. Feel free to view our full list of services.

Home Appliances

Dryer Vent and Duct Cleaning

Your dryer vent and ducts should be cleaned regularly. Your dryer vent will eventually collect enough dust and lint to obstruct the flow of air out through the vent, which can prove to be a fire hazard. Additionally, your HVAC ducts can get filled with dirt and debris, which can harm the air quality of your home, while reducing the efficiency of your heating and cooling systems. We can clean out your dryer vent and air ducts to keep your home safe, healthy, and efficient.

Appliance Maintenance

From your washer and dryer to your dishwasher and garbage disposal, all appliances should be inspected regularly to mitigate the odds of a failure, and to keep things running smoothly and safely. We can inspect your appliances to ensure that there aren’t any issues (including leaks, electrical issues, moving parts inefficiencies, et cetera). We also provide appliance repair services and appliance replacement/installation, should you have a problem with any of your home’s appliances.

A five star experience. He called me back right away. He was friendly and helpful. He showed up when he said he was going to. He diagnosed the problem with my dishwasher. He did all the plumbing and had the right tools in his truck. He charged me a fair price. I highly recommend him.
Ethon has always done a great job for us. For any work, big or small, he gets it done. Because of his experience, his company has helped us solve problems in the home in a very efficient and cost effective manner. We highly recommend Ethon and his company.

Ethon knows what he is doing. I had him hang my antique chandelier in my historic home in Lake Forest. He was very careful when moving my furniture & he didn’t scratch anything. He was quick and gracious. I recommend them whole hardily.
