Title 24- Residential ADU

Title 24 - Residential ADU

Title 24 rules apply to ADUs (accessory dwelling units) in California, whether they are newly constructed or converted from existing structures.

ADUs, also known as granny flats or in-law units, are separate living spaces on the same property as the main home, which can be either an attached or detached building in the backyard.

When building or modifying an ADU in California, it is crucial to adhere to the energy efficiency regulations outlined in Title 24. These regulations encompass various aspects of the ADU, including energy efficiency and safety considerations.

The Title 24 Energy Code mandates that ADUs must comply with specific guidelines aimed at conserving energy. This may entail criteria for insulation, lighting, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems. By complying with these standards, ADUs can contribute to the overall energy efficiency objectives of the state.

Title 24 rules ensure energy-efficient, accessible, and safe ADUs in California.

Here is how Title 24 applies to ADUs:

Energy Efficiency: Title 24 requires that all new ADUs meet certain energy efficiency standards. These standards include insulation requirements, window efficiency, and Heating and Cooling system efficiency.

Lighting: Title 24 sets requirements for lighting in ADUs to reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. These requirements include lighting power density, lighting controls, and lighting quality.

Wall and Roof insulation: Title 24 mandates that the ADU’s building envelope, including walls, roofs, and floors, must meet specific insulation and air leakage criteria.

To comply with these requirements
