renovating your home? you will need a hers verification!

Have you been thinking about finally adding on to your kitchen, or turning part of of the backyard into a bonus bedroom? Perhaps you’ve been wanting to add a bathroom onto your home, so the kids can finally have their own shower? Whatever the case for your home renovation or add-on, don’t forget to include scheduling a HERS verification in your renovation plans! Even if your home is currently compliant with California’s energy codes, you will need to verify that your home remains compliant after your renovation is complete. 


Title 24 from the California Energy Commission sets forth the energy efficiency requirements for all residential and commercial buildings, which applies to both new construction and existing buildings. You will be required to verify your Title 24 compliance if you are making any changes or additions to your:

  • Building envelope (the separation between your living space & the outdoor air)

  • Heating, cooling & water equipment (including your duct system)

  • Light fixtures & lighting controls

  • Square footage 

Verifying your Title 24 compliance requires multiple documents, and a lot of paperwork on top of HERS verification from a certified HERS rater. So how can you tell when you will need to worry about your Title 24 compliance?
