Thanks John! Looking forward to the class on Saturday and Sunday.

TY John .
I’m a sponge and Ill take part in these fully
Just purchased the Infraspection/NACHI course
Nick set up as well and it’s enroute .

I’m loving this tool in my arsenal for inspections now
here’s lil snippet of just one of many from 3 inspections
yesterday in Ann Arbor…

The TIR32 Fluke was outstanding and had the clients amazed.

That vaulted ceiling was 20’ up and the canned light had all the
blown in fiberglass missing from the proximity.


So, how did you report on that?

Maybe the last inspector told the owners to move it away.

If that fixture is NON-IC rated you must not have insulation covering it without a “baffle”

I hope you didn’t just report the condition to the homeowner without inspecting the rating of the fixture or at least warning them about the possibility of it being a non rated recessed light.

If they just cover it in loose insulation, the best case is the light will trip the thermal overload and flick on and off as it heats and cool, the worst, well we don’t want to talk about that.

They sell special boxes that go around a NON-IC rated fixture. The building official in my area used to let you use chicken wire to create your own baffle but now they prefer the listed box or you can create one of your own out of FC sheetrock.

From the photo of the attic, you didn’t need an IR imager to tell you that.

I reported that the insulation was disturbed and not properly covering the surface as it should.

The canned lights are all IC Rated in this new condo and all were covered appropriately .

True you could see it without IR but I knew exactly where some problems were before I even climbed into the attic…

I inspected a a good portion of the lighting and they were all IC rated and fully covered in Blown in .


That was such an assinine comment I’ll pretend I didn’t see it . k ?

Its just an example for FUX Sakes…get over yourself.

No wonder , looking at the name of your company I see you included
your first name incorporated into it,That displays how highly you view yourself
and pompous an *** you are …

Hey Jimbo,who does that ?

I had three gals that are visiting all look at the name and they all came to the
same conclusion when asked…I didn’t even have to say a thing…"self absorbed "
was the consensus…

You don’t happen to live on Jim St. do ya ?

JimSpect…lol really ?

Lemme give you a bit of advice…since this is the first negative toned
reply I’ve had to make on this forum …

Be a gentleman Jim, It’ll get you much further in life than showing
you’re a jealous, insecure lil wannabe…

Nobody likes a douche bag …

Take it from a nice guy …I know what I’m talking about !

The ladies like a “Nice Guy” :smiley:
