Title 24 Verification (TEST)

Title 24 Verification and HERS Testing

Your San Diego and Riverside Title 24 Verification Experts

At CA Comfort Testing we’re dedicated to providing our clients with certified HERS Testing and verification, including the Title 24 Energy Report. While initially designated for only state owned buildings, California extended the reach of Title 24 energy code standards to include private residential and commercial buildings in 1978. The purpose of this was to establish certain guidelines designed to reduce energy waste and improve building efficiency.

Essentially, a Title 24 report is a calculation determined by the overall efficiency of your home’s various energy components. This test is required by the state of California for all new construction and most remodels, and must be completed before receiving a building permit. The actual verification test is performed by a state certified, third-party inspector called a Home Energy Rating System (HERS) rater.

Our approach is to provide permanent energy solutions by using state of the art performance equipment such as:

  • The Energy Conservatory (TEC) Duct Blaster, Blower Door, Manometer DG700, and Exhaust Fan Flow Meter
  • Alnor Flow Capture Hood or Velocity Matrix with Micromanometer
  • Testo and Fieldpiece Refrigerant Gauges & Thermometers
  • Bacharach Fyrite InTech Residential Combustion Analyzer

Our Commercial HERS Testing Certifications

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.
