Title 24 Part 11 is the CalGreen Code. CalGreen is the California Green Building Standards Code that has mandatory and voluntary measures. The new updated 2016 CalGreen code began January 1, 2017. The CalGreen Code applies to ALL newly constructed residential and non-residential buildings: low-rise, high-rise, and hotels/motels. The code was established to reduce construction waste, make buildings more efficient in the use of materials and energy and reduce environmental impact during and after construction. Here is a direct link to the entire code: https://codes.iccsafe.org/public/document/details/toc/657. Below is the easy to view residential CalGreen checklist as images or click here for this checklist as a pdf.
DuctTesters is giving back in the Bakersfield area. One of our clients is a big supporter of the Ronald McDonald Housing Program. They asked if we would also help the charity. DuctTesters recently made a generous donation to the Bakersfield Ronald McDonald House Program. The RMHC has provided comfort, care and support to children and families in Southern California. The hope is to create a community where children and their families embrace life and healing with a sense of hope, enthusiasm, courage and joy.
