Many homeowners would agree that keeping up on state building codes can be very beneficial. Building codes are always changing and improving and can help attentive homeowners improve their home’s energy efficiency. However, learning about California state building codes can be a daunting and intimidating task. One area that QuietCool focuses on is the new whole house fan requirement. As of 2014, whole house fans are a huge compliance measure for building efficiency in California.
It is important to remember that whole house fans help minimize direct costs and give great Title 24 compliance. Whole house fans also provide a new appliance for sales staff to sell and market in the home. Many homeowners list their QuietCool as one of their favorite aspects of their new home on builder customer surveys. The benefits are far more than just energy savings!
Whole House Fans in Title 24 Part 6
As of 2014, whole house fans have become a prescriptive standard in zones 8-14 of California building climate zones. That means new homes being built in California need to meet a certain level of energy efficiency and whole house fans are a standard option to meet that efficiency level. This is where QuietCool comes in. Not only are our fans one of the least expensive options for these builders, but our product alone offers 10-15% in Title 24 credits! For this reason, it is no wonder we are currently working with all the major builders!
Over the next five years, more than 500,000 homes will be built with a whole house fan and almost all of them will be QuietCool! Whether you are thinking about purchasing a new home, or someone you know is, be prepared to hear about the amazing household appliance that is changing people’s lives, QuietCool!
