California’s Energy Commissions' Home Energy Rating System (HERS) program tests and even rates the energy performance of a home. It addresses construction defects as well as reduced equipment installation. This is inclusive of heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems. California Law Code, Title 24, section 6, necessitates every homeowner, contractor, and HVAC installer to register the HVAC project. This registration is further needed for the installation of a new system, AC alteration repair and installation/repair of Ductwork. In order to ensure the energy efficiency of your home, we at NorCal, specialize in energy ratings, inspections, diagnostic testings all of which include energy-efficient solutions Our Raters also perform HERS Testing in Auzerais Avenue, Bernal Road, Berryessa Road, Cleaves Avenu, Delmas Avenue and other surrounding streets. Our full-scale energy services rely on the whole-house approach to longevity. Satisfying all your energy solution needs, there are a couple of HERS Tests San Jose required to be completed to pass the inspection:
A duct leakage tester is a diagnostic tool that is exclusively designed to measure the airtightness of HVAC ductwork. The tester consists of a calibrated fan for evaluating an airflow rate along with a pressure sensing device to determine the pressure created by the fan. This combination of fan flow and pressure measurements helps in measuring the ductwork airtightness. Used by a residential single-family and commercial building, Duct Leakage Testing San Hose enforces air delivery systems for cooling and heating.
Many existing homes in San Jose have improperly sized equipment and ducts. Airflow and Fan efficacy are two primary components of Air Flow & Fan Efficiency Test San Jose. This test is individually done to ascertain if there is sufficient airflow in the HVAC system to cool and heat the building efficiently.
This test helps in determining how much power is being consumed to move 1 CFM of air. A needed amount of Air Flow is required to cool the house properly and to avoid freezing of evaporator coil.
Fan Efficacy is the CFM output of the system divided by the wattage, is called out in various codes and standards. California Energy Commissions require that the blowers must perform at or below .58 fan efficacy. This implies that a blower moving 1000 CFM shouldn't use more than 80 watts of power.
As per Title 24, it requires commissioning and Acceptance Testing of windows, lightning ss well as a mechanical system specifically for significant renovations, new buildings, and equipment replacements. At NorCal, we have a team of experienced professionals that can incorporate Prescriptive, Mandatory, and Performance measures to generate a Title 24 report. They put their extensive knowledge to identify the best energy compliance solution for the unique project. Partner with NorCal, where we work together to create the most cost-effective solution for unique designs.
