Title 24 & HERS Testing
California Law requires home or building owners to fulfill Title 24 requirements to issue new construction permits or do renovations. Based on the recommendations on your Title 24 report, our testers will do the HERS Test so that you can close your permit. This was set in place to attain a sustainable energy future with an emphasis on energy efficiency and use of renewable energy sources. With this objective in mind, Norcal HERS started HERS & Title 24 Testing Services for Bay Area, Sacramento, and Northern California. The services include Duct Leakage Testing, Refrigerant Testing, Air Flow Testing, Fan Efficiency Testing and so on.
Duct Leakage Test Bay Area
With a duct leakage performance test for Bay Area & Sacramento homes, you will be able to know if there is leakage in your central AC or Heat system, which causes warm & cold air to leak. By this test alone and fixing the problem later, our clients are able to save thousands of dollars on their energy bills in Sacramento and the Bay Area.
Air Flow Test
Air flow testing uses flow measurement devices to measure the flow in your Bay Area home’s HVAC System. The Air Flow Test Bay Area can thus calculate leaks in your HVAC system. The test also aims at calculating the effectiveness of the following systems:
• Insulation effectiveness
• Heating, ventilation and air-conditioning performance
• Air duct leakage and restrictions
• Construction integrity issues
• Ceiling and other “hot spot” areas
Blower Door Test
Our testers have years of experience and proper professional equipment to perform Blower Door Test for your Bay Area Home. Testers will calculate the air infiltration rate of a residence or a commercial building. The will inform you about air-tightness and overall efficiency of the area that is tested.
Air Balancing Test
Air Balancing Test Bay Area is an extra service that we can provide that will measure the airflow coming from different registers/vents. This test can make sure that you have a steady air flow from vents that reaches all the corners of the house, despite their distance from the HVAC system.
Refrigerant leak detection Bay Area is the key to your Air-Conditioning’s effectiveness in cooling your house or office. Leakage of refrigerant from a refrigeration system affects the performance of a sealed system adversely. Due to refrigerant leakage, the running time of the system increases continuously. Both suction, as well as discharge pressures, reduced due to loss of refrigerant. By knowing the problem and fixing it can save you on your energy bill.
