Title-24 Seminar Revealed 2016 Energy Code Changes

Capacity crowd attended Dolan's Title-24 Seminar in June. It is part of our continuing program to provide important and up-to-date information regarding the California energy Code which is updated every three years. The 2016 changes to the Code take effect January 1, 2017. If you are an architect or contractor, designing and/or building in the State of California, it is imperative that you are up-to-date on code requirements.

The California Energy Commission states that the 2016 update to the Residential Building Energy Efficiency Standards (Energy Standards) requires new and altered homes to become more efficient in several ways to create energy and environmental savings for Californians.  Chuck Clemons, T-24 expert and seminar presenter stated that the new code requirements make T-24 about 30% more difficult than previous requirements.

Prescribed by regulation, the code defines building and construction standards that increase the efficiency of the use of energy and water, including lighting, insulation climate control systems and more. This act was signed into law by Governor Ronald Reagan in 1974 and launched by Governor Jerry Brown in 1975.

Appendices are detailed in more than 500 pages -- a document available on the energy Commission web site.
