What is a Title 24 Certificate of Compliance?
The California Energy Commision (CEC) set up the Title 24 program. Title 24’s standards seek to reduce heating, cooling, and electricity bills for consumers. Title 24 dates from the 1970s, but has been updated continuously since. Concern about natural gas availability and price has been one spur driving the standards (natural gas is heavily used for both heating and electricity generation in California). The Title 24 standards cover many aspects of the home including insulation, windows and heating and cooling systems. Each new home is required to have a Title 24 certificate when it is built. When homes are remodeled, windows replaced, insulation added or heating and cooling systems replaced, each contractor is to provide the home owner with a new certificate for the work they did.
Why do I need an updated certificate?
Title 24 standard's are periodically updated, usually with higher efficiency requirements. If you had your air conditioner replaced last year, and your contractor didn't update your certificate, you will not be getting credit for the higher efficiency product that was installed. And thus you may be out of compliance.
