What’s needed for Commercial Title 24?
Title 24 Lighting Acceptance Testing
California’s Energy Code (or the Title 24 Testing, if you will) has actually generated a lot of confusion over the years. A lot of people seem to not be able to come to any understanding of just what it is and the type of effects that it would have on the lighting of a specific building.
As you’ll be able to clearly see published in Section 6 of the California Code of Regulations, Title 24 Testing constitutes a broad set of specific requirements that cover “energy conservation, green design, construction and maintenance, fire and life safety, and accessibility”. These requirements ideally apply to the “structural, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems” that can be found in a building. The code is one which clearly applies to each and every building located in the state of California, meaning that not just state-owned buildings are covered by it and its provisions.
Over the past few years, there have been laws that have been made even outside the state of California that have been known to put codes that share a striking similarity with California’s Energy Conservation Code into place in their respective states. These laws are especially strict when it comes to the lighting and electrical composition of a building.
Due to the fact that Title 24 commercial lighting acceptance certificate and any other similar codes have the ability to significantly affect commercial lighting and lighting controls in a building, we decided to have a full exposition into the code and how it was many years ago so as to be able to have a much better understanding of what it is, its specific requirements, and the repercussions that await those who, for some reason or the other are found guilty of not following its provisions. All these are mans to help our clients to achieve the required level of success when it comes to completing their projects.
