QII is a  method of getting insulation to a high level of performance. QII is a HERS measure that documents the installation process of the insulation installer so that we know the complete insulation system works as specified by the manufacturer.

QII is the systematic documentation of air sealing and placement of the insulation installed. The HERS rater inspects the system at framing, sealing and completion. QII seeks to eliminate gaps, voids and compressions.

See here for the Calcert’s Quality Insulation Installation Handbook for the 2016 Energy Code.
