TITLE-24 MECHANICAL ACCEPTANCE
What are Title-24 mechanical acceptance forms?
California's Title 24 Part 6 Energy Code requires that acceptance testing occur before certifying that systems are code compliant. This process is meant to ensure that systems are compliant with the approved design. It also encourages energy optimization through functional testing of design standards. Currently this testing and associated forms may be completed by any member of the construction team, but soon it will require an approved acceptance testing technician.
How do acceptance and compliance differ?
Title-24's compliance forms are intended to ensure that systems are designed in compliance with applicable energy codes and standards. Title-24's acceptance forms are intended to ensure that systems perform and operate as designed and thus are in compliance with applicable energy codes and standards. It is the designer of record's duty to specify which forms are needed to ensure acceptance of systems. It is the technicians duty to carry out the testing and certify the forms.
