Title-24, Title-24

“I have never attended a webinar before and was unsure what to expect, but I have to say that it was awesome.  You did a great job explaining the material thoroughly, and not over explaining it too much.  I think I need to sit through it again just to make it sink in.  I’m going to ask my building department that they sign me up for all of your classes that pertain to the new energy code.  Thanks again!

February 5th, 2014 Residential Lighting/ASHRAE 62.2 webinar scheduled

Monday, January 20th, 2014

Title-24, Title-24

February 5th,  2014 we will be presenting our monthly 3 hour training Webinar/class that addresses the new changes to the residential Title-24 lighting & ventilation codes.

.

The new 2013 Title-24 Building Efficiency Standards becomes effective July 1, 2014.   One of the most sweeping changes in the 2008 Energy Code involved residential indoor and outdoor lighting requirements, particularly kitchen lighting and the new adoption of ASHRAE 62.2 indoor air quality code.  These two codes have been retained for the new 2013 Title-24 Building Efficiency Standards with some significant changes.

Kitchen Lighting, Title-24

New restrictions, control requirements, high efficacy fixture requirements and incandescent allowances, and interior lighting worksheets will add an additional layer of complexity to residential lighting design.  This class will bring you up to speed on the new changes and address the underlying principles, calculation methods, strategies to assist you in complying with the new code changes and take you step by step thru the new CF-2R-LTG-1 lighting certificate of installation which must be filled out before the final certificate of occupancy will be issued.

Kitchen Lighting, Title-24

You will also understand which fixtures will comply as high efficacy (not all LED fixtures are certified as high efficacy), the lighting control requirements for each room type and the new fixture and control requirements for residential outdoor lighting.

Title-24, Title-24

California has now adopted the requirements of ASHRAE 62.2-2007 which means that starting July 1, 2014, all low-rise residential buildings are required to install whole house mechanical ventilation and satisfy other requirements to achieve acceptable indoor air quality.  Openable windows will no longer be an acceptable method for satisfying outdoor air requirements.  This will involve calculations for determining the minimum ventilation cfm and designing a system to provide the necessary airflow with proper controls.  You will learn the proper method for determining ventilation airflow, strategies for designing a cost effective ventilation system, and how to fill out the new ventilation Certificate of Installation.

Kitchen Lighting, Title-24

Learn from one of the leading experts in California’s Title-24 Building Efficiency Standards (Title-24), Mark Madison, a state certified Energy Plans Examiner and Certified Energy Analyst, HERS rater, Greenpoint rater with over 25 years experience with building energy code compliance analysis, enforcement and training.

New webinar for HVAC contractors: HERS verification tests, how to pass every time!

Monday, April 18th, 2011

.

The new 2008 Title-24 Energy Code has made HERS third party duct testing mandatory for most residential projects, including HVAC changeouts.  Other HERS verification measures such as Refrigerant Charge Verification, Adequate Airflow Verification, and Fan Watt Draw Verification, are now commonly specified  in Title-24 compliance reports.

.

These third party HERS verification tests can add several layers of paperwork, complexity and delays in the HVAC installation and cause significant delays and expensive repairs for HVAC contractors who are not familiar with the requirements.

.

This webinar is designed specifically for the HVAC contractor and will provide an in-depth look at the HERS HVAC verification process including a step-by-step guide thru the following HERS verfication tests:

.

Rough-in duct testing

Final duct testing

Refrigerant Charge Verification

Fan Watt Draw

Adequate Airflow

Filling out the CF-6R forms quickly and correctly

Working with HERS raters; helping them help you
