The 2019 Title 24 Energy Code is changing the way California buildings will be constructed in the post-COVID-19 world.
Darrin Goldberg, Dhairav Vakil, and Jack Peck-Kriss discussed the altered landscape with GlobeSt.com in the article “Title 24 Energy Code’s Impact on the Post-COVID Built Environment.” Their key takeaways: First, because of the greatly reduced lighting power density values, use LEDs across the job if possible. Second, make sure to assess lighting compliance early in the project.
Finally, expect increased cost for controls due to HVAC/lighting-sensor integration.
