When did HERS rating become required?
The California Energy Commission (CEC) was established in the late 1970s. One of the missions of the CEC was the creation of building energy standards for newly constructed homes and commercial buildings.
The Building Energy Standards, commonly referred to as Title-24 (or T-24), ensure that newly constructed homes and commercial buildings in California are among the most efficient in the US, if not the world. Title 24 also established standards for renovations and additions.
To ensure that homes meet the standards laid out in the Title 24 Energy Calculations at the beginning of the project,California has also required that certain HERS (Home Energy Rating System) tests are done at certain stages of the project and before a final inspection by the building department.
