Title 24 Verification and HERS Testing
According to the The California Energy Registry website (link), The energy standards for the state of California change approximately every 3 years. Why is this important to you? By requiring a 3rd-party state certified expert from outside of your current contractors, you are ensuring the tests are honest and accurate. A HERS Rater will work directly with you or your contractor to examine plans and determine the specific test required for verification.
One of our main goals at CA Comfort Testing is to ensure our customer’s verification process is smooth, quick and easy. With our vast knowledge of California's Energy Code, state of the art testing equipment, and numerous energy and building related certifications, we’re confident we can handle all your residential and commercial Title 24 verification needs.
