IN THE OLD 2005 TITLE-24 ENERGY CODE A RESIDENTIAL COOL ROOF WAS AN OPTIONAL ENERGY EFFICIENCY MEASURE.
As of January 1, 2010 Title 24 Cool Roofs are required for most residential buildings in most of California’s 16 climate zones.
Cool roof standards are designed to reduce air conditioner and other forms of hi energy use temperature control devices demand on energy usage.
In order to determine how the requirements affect you, we’ve put together an easy five-step process to determine your specific needs.
Energy Tax Credit
The American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 has been extended to December 31, 2013. The bill extends the IRS Section 25c tax credit for energy efficient retrofits to existing homes. The tax credit for installed insulation materials meeting 2006 IECC requirements will be 10% of the material cost up to $500.
To qualify, improvements must be installed in an existing home and your principal residence. New construction and rentals do not qualify. Tax credit does not include installation costs.
Here’s how to determine your requirements.
Step One: Determining Your Roof Slope - Two Types
Low Slope – Is less than 2:12 pitch
Steep Slope – Is greater than 2:12 pitch
The video explains how to find the slope of your roof.
Step Two: Determine The Weight of the Roofing Material
Less than 5 lb/sq. ft. (composite shingles)
Greater than 5 lb/sq. ft. (tile roofing)
Note: As a rule, lighter weight roofing material like asphalt shingles have a lower cool roof requirements than heavier roofing products like cement or tile roofing.
Step Three: Determine your climate zone in California.
Find your requirements on the Table D 2008 Title-24 Building Efficiency Standards, Table 151-D
