California compliance is easy!
October 11, 2018
Ensuring that your California home or business is HERS tested and Title 24 compliant can sound like a headache at first. All the paperwork and coordination involved with staying up to date on California’s energy code standards is intimidating — but it doesn’t have to be! Here is what you need to know about HERS testing, ratings, and documenting as well as how you can make this intimidating process a breeze when you leave the heavy lifting to the pros at We Green.
What is HERS Testing and Why Do I Need It?
The state of California has made Home Energy Ratings System (HERS) testing mandatory whenever a new mechanical system is being installed in a home or business (including new construction). This is to ensure that any additions or changes to a home’s systems are in line with California’s energy efficiency requirements and energy code standards.
A certified HERS test provides a HERS rating to ensure a home’s systems are energy code compliant. HERS testing is required for any home that uses a mechanical appliance, but it is a great idea whenever you are buying a new home to get an understanding of what your monthly costs will be after move in.
