The Guide to California’s Title 24 Building Code 

California’s 2019 Title 24 Code, Part 6, brings 50% more stringency to residential housing in just one code cycle. This downloadable ebook is the definitive guide to the major changes the code brings, pitfalls to avoid, and ways to comply.

Changes are coming. California is leading the nation with energy efficiency and green building requirements. Whether or not you live, build, or manufacture in California, it is important to keep up with the new Title 24 code changes as they will no doubt serve as a blueprint for other codes across the nation, notably the 2021 IECC. 

Green Builder Media and Bradford White Water Heaters are proud to offer a downloadable ebook on this topic, which includes: 

  • A complete guide to the important changes in Title 24, Part 6.
  • Highlights of brand-new additions to the code.
  • A breakdown of the new rules for solar.
  • Information on the important role of energy consultants.
  • A list of online and in-person resources to help builders meet the Title 24 code.
  • An overview on the Bradford White AeroTherm ® Series water heater, a super energy-efficient electric appliance, a key product helping California in its move toward decarbonization.

“Understanding California’s Title 24 Code is important for builders and home buyers in California as well as in the rest of the country,” says Green Builder Media CEO Sara Gutterman. “What California does in terms of code adoption and energy efficiency tends to head east, particularly with climate change issues remaining top of mind for many Americans. This invaluable ebook details the disruptive technologies, product solutions, and building science that can help builders navigate to a cleaner, greener future.”    

California’s goal to decarbonize means different products and solutions need to be considered. Take water heating. Gas tankless water heaters had become the norm in the state but now with the goal to go electric, heat pump water heaters will be specified.

“Bradford White’s AeroTherm® heat pump water heater can help builders meet California’s laudable but tough energy-efficiency goals,” says Gregg Holladay, Business Development Manager, Bradford White Water Heaters. “We are pleased our water heater is an important part of the solution stepping toward electrification. Helping builders and their architects understand the easy installation and solar integration potential is key to our approach. In fact, after witnessing code-adoption anxiety from builders in the field–ranging from questions about water heating to insulation to lighting requirements–we decided to help with the code education process. And that’s what this book is: Everything building pros need to know about Title 24 compliance. We are proud of our leadership position as a go-to educational resource for our customers and the industry.”
