Energy Code Compliance (T24 & IECC)
ConSol analysts are certified for residential and non-residential energy compliance by California Association of Building Energy Consultants
(CABEC). They are trained to select energy design measures based on the highest code impact and the lowest additional cost to the builder. The expertise of the highly trained staff also allows them to identify potential costly design problems and recommend cost-effective energy options.
ConSol's compliance staff is trained in all compliance approaches and produces all necessary energy analysis documentation required to meet California Residential Energy Efficiency Standards
(Title 24) and the International Energy Conservation Code
(IECC) that is used throughout the rest of the United States.
2008 Title 24 Update Service
The effective date for the 2008 Building Energy Efficiency Standards (Title 24, Parts 1 and 6) has been changed to January 1, 2010.
The California Energy Commission adopted the 2008 Standards on April 23, 2008, and the Building Standards Commission approved them on September 11, 2008. The Standards were scheduled to become effective on August 1, 2009.
The Energy Commission has experienced delays in completing the public domain compliance software. The Energy Commission had anticipated that these software programs would be available earlier, however the software required further programming attention before the programs could be released. The Energy Commission is resolving those problems, and will provide the programs in the near future.
This delay provides the industry and building officials more time to prepare for the new Standards. The Energy Commission will use this additional time to provide more information for the Standards and work with the California utilities, building industry and the California Building Officials to provide training on the new Standards.

The new standards are approximately 20% more stringent than the 2005 Standards. The average cost of compliance is about $2200 (depending on climate zone and home design). Without proper understanding of the true cost of various measures, this compliance cost could easily increase by $1000s. ConSol is your solution to keeping your costs low and quality high.

always breathe a sign of relief because I know, after
years of experience, that the review is going to be easy
because ConSol does quality work."
