ready for Title 24, Part 6.....
The California Energy Code, or Title 24, Part 6 of the California Code of Regulations,
also titled The Energy Efficiency Standards for Residential and Nonresidential
Buildings were established in 1978 in response to a legislative mandate to reduce
California's energy consumption. As of January 1, 2010, these
standards have been updated. The new standards affect new construction, significant
repairs of existing roofs, re-roofing (steep-slope), plus additions and alterations
of existing buildings and homes.
Currently, a residential cool roof is an optional
energy efficiency measure, however on January 1, 2010,
a cool roof will be required for residential buildings
(Climate Zones-10-15, Sacramento is Zone 12). Cool
roof standards are designed to reduce air conditioner
demand, lower your energy costs, and reduce the urban
heat island effect.
Are Cool Roofs Mandatory?
There are other products available that will meet
the new Title 24, Part 6 Energy Efficiency Standards
if you elect to install a non-Cool Roof. Our Sales
Consultants can assist you in choosing the product(s)
that will meet the new requirements as well as obtaining
a more energy efficiency home!
