Anyone in California who is looking to start new home construction or even to renovate an existing home, must abide by California’s Title 24 regulations. These laws are established to reduce the energy demand that is reaching a crisis in California and to ensure more environmentally conscientious construction practices. Before you begin any new construction, you must get the proper permits to ensure that you are in compliance with Title 24 residential title services.
According to CA.gov, “The Energy Commission’s energy efficiency standards have saved Californians more than $74 billion in reduced electricity bills since 1977.” The standards are designed to make sure that buildings are safe, comfortable and energy efficient. The standards apply to residential and non-residential buildings alike. It would be a good idea to check with a Title 24 residential title services adviser before you begin construction to avoid problems down the road.
The California Energy Commission publishes periodic newsletters called “The Blueprint” to keep the public updated on all the latest concerns related to energy efficient building codes. Residents can sign-up for the newsletter at CA.gov. In addition to the newsletter, there is a wealth of information on-line at their website including an online-learning center, an energy videos center, and an educational resource page. These resources are worth checking out for anyone seeking to improve their homes energy efficiency.
