  The Impact of the 2013 Title 24 Standards on energy calculation process  
  CF-1R registration

• In the 2013 Title 24 Standards, the CEC introduced new mandatory testing requirements related to HVAC system and IAQ fans.
• The California Energy Commission requires any Title 24 report that are subject to HERS (Home Energy Rating Systems) testing to have the CF-1R registered with an approved HERS provider.
• If your project has any measures that require testing, the CF-1R must be registered.

What is the process for CF-1R registration?

1. Prepared Title 24 Report should be uploaded to the HERS provider web site (currently only Cal CERTS is approved)

2. The Documentation Author (we) and Project Designer ( Owner, Builder, etc.) will need to place their signature via the HERS provider web site - please, establish an account with CalCERTS (free of charge):

  - Home Owners - Home Owner account ( "owner-builder" - for new construction, "owner installer" - for all other )
