HVAC Compliance Reconciliation Program

The intent of the Compliance Reconciliation System (CRS) is to increase Title 24 compliance regarding HERS testing for retrofit installations of Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) equipment as per Title 24, Part 6, Residential Appendix RA3, and the Residential Manual.

The CRS increases compliance by identifying projects for which HVAC equipment was purchased, but HERS testing has not been performed, and/or building permits have not been procured. Such projects are identified by recording, compiling, and reconciling the purchase of HVAC equipment with registration of HERS forms and building permit records.

To learn more, please see our recommendations submitted in support of the California Energy Commission’s work on Senate Bill 1414 - HVAC Compliance Improvement.
