Title 24 requirements apply to Accessory Dwelling Units (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 HVAC 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.
Building Envelope: Title 24 requires that the building envelope of the ADU, which includes walls, roofs, and floors, meet certain insulation and air leakage standards.
To comply with these requirements
Title 24 calcs can perform Title 24 calculations using approved software tools. These tools use various inputs, such as building geometry, lighting system characteristics, and occupancy schedules, to generate a compliance report that shows whether the proposed ADU meets Title 24 requirements.
We will provide a compliance report that includes the required information to obtain a building permit.
