Recap – Energy Code Presentation: Title 24 Part 6


Thank you for joining us in discussing the current 2019 Title 24, Part 6 (Energy Code) fenestration efficiency requirements for new construction and alteration projects for all building types (single-family residential, low-rise and high-rise multifamily, hotel & motel, and nonresidential) when using the prescriptive compliance method.

Additionally, this presentation covered how to look for those values in the performance documentation. Once fenestration has been selected, verifying that the specified product will meet the Energy Code’s certification/labeling requirements is essential so that documenting the installed product via the installation and acceptance procedures goes smoothly.

Gina Rodda also reviewed what certification and labeling requirements are needed for specific fenestration types (site-built, manufactured, field-fabricated) and how best to work with an NFRC lab.
