Just as some areas of an inspection are optional and may cost more to be inspected, you can also exclude certain parts of the home inspection if you are not concerned with them, or if your home doesn't have that system.
For example, if your home doesn't have central air conditioning, tell the inspector to exclude that area from the inspection, home inspector education provider Jim Mushinsky advises. You may be able to negotiate a lower fee, because even if your home doesn't have central air an inspector must determine there is no central air and fill out that section of the report. If you ask the inspector to skip that section of the report, you can save time and – possibly – money.
