CALIFORNIA TITLE 24

Title 24 2013 takes effect 1/1/2014

The standard documents can be found on the CEC website here

Note: Efficiency of small heating and cooling equipment that is covered under NAECA is located in the Appliance Efficiency Standards.

California Title 24 2013 HVAC Presentations

  • Presentation on HVAC and Process Requirements in Adobe Acrobat (16.1 MBytes) DOWNLOAD
  • Presentation on HVAC and Process Acceptance Tests in Adobe Acrobat (10.4 MBytes) DOWNLOAD
  • These slides were developed by Taylor Engineering under contract to Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E).

Title 24 2016 Development

The 2016 Standards development process is just starting.  We'll link to the CEC web page for the 2016 Standards when it is developed.
