Two Interpretations: MINHERS 2019-002 and MINHERS 2019-003, Addendum 36

Oct 15, 2019

Interpretation MINHERS 2019-002 Duct Insulation Inspection:

The Interpretation Request (IR) sought clarification of inspection requirements for verifying the insulation value of foil products used as duct insulation. RESNET Standard Development Committee 300 responded that RESNET standards currently do not have requirements on which to base an interpretation. The issue will be added to the list of topics to be pursued during the next update of the standards. The Committee agreed that guidance in this area is necessary during the interim and included in its comments, references to current Federal Trade Commission regulations for insulation products and to appropriate test standards.
