Performing Title 24 Work

We are often asked if one must legally be certified to complete Title 24 documentation, which provides calculations demonstrating a building’s compliance with the California Energy efficiency Standards.

Individual certification is not required of those preparing Title 24 compliance documents. However, when using a Performance based method the software itself must be California state certified.
