Title 24 changes are one of the industry’s most controversial topics. Having taken effect July 1st, 2014, we all have a lot to learn about this program. SLO County is within a climate zone that previously was not required to meet most Title 24 requirements. New code changes that apply to all climate zones across the board means big changes for SLO County.
During the SLO Green Building Alliance meeting on August 6, Lauren Bell at GLO-Bell Consulting presented an overview of these changes. It included how the changes specifically affect contractors and retrofit projects going with the performance approach as well as a brief explanation of the role of HERS raters in your projects.

"Passing grades" are required by the designer, commissioning agent, manufacturers and vendors, installing contractor, and acceptance testing technician.
