Bad news on my insulation job. the MassSave QC inspector came for the post inspection and was unimpressed. Turns out that the insulation contractors:
#1 Didn't dense pack anything. In fact some of the joist bays were empty.
#2 Missed about half of the air sealing at the transitions from the rigid foam on the kneewalls to the slopes. So that insulation is doing nothing.
#3 (this I disagree with) He was really upset that they insulation over my IC-rated recessed lights. Apparently the state is afraid of being sued and treats any can light as a 30 year old can light. I explained they are brand new, IC rated, installed to spec and even massively UNDER lamped (10w vs fire safe rating of 65w). But still they insist its a no go. They want to take the insulation out.
So now they are sending the contractors back to redo everything!
Even more annoying, this guy had the IR camera, and found that many of of my "insulated" walls have a lot of voids and probably should have been worked on. It would have helped if the initial auditor had that tool rather than the drill and coat hanger guess method he used
