According to Res. SOP
2.9. Attic, Ventilation & Insulation I. The inspector shall inspect
B. the ventilation of the attic spaces
C. mechanical ventilation systems;
II. The inspector is not required to:
F. activate thermostatically operated fans.
Is that confusing to anyone?
Because the SOP requires me to inspect the attic ventilation AND the mechanical ventilation systems, a client might say my inspection includes activating the thermostatically operated fan.
In law, if there is any confusion, the consumer wins.
