TITLE 24 DOCUMENTATION
Title 24 part 6 is the section of California Building Code which details the necessary elements for designing homes that meet the California building energy efficiency standards.
It includes components like window replacement, new HVAC systems, additions and alterations to existing homes, and new home design.
There are two primary ways of showing that your project meets code -prescriptive or performance based.
California has sixteen individual climate zones which your Energy Consultant is required to understand to accurately model your home or building. The building science is affected by the amount of moisture in your climate zone. The climate zone of your property determines whether you are heating or cooling focused as well as the amount of weather proofing necessary.
