    Default Floor insulation upside down/reversed

    I just received a home inspection noting floor insulation is installed upside down- the vapor barrier toward the ground rather than toward the living space. There were no adverse conditions noted, but I imagine mold or mildew might be possible if it were not "breathing" properly.

    Has anybody had experience with problems caused by incorrect installation? Should it be fixed, or can it be left alone? Any comments are appreciated!
