This brochure explains the new code and how continuous exterior insulation helps meet the requirements of Title 24 in California.
Parex USA Inc. has launched the new “California Energy Code
and Parex USA Solutions” brochure.
This brochure explains the new code and how continuous
exterior insulation helps meet the requirements of Title 24 in California. With the use
of energy moving to the forefront of the construction industry, construction of
new structures has a direct impact on the environment as buildings are the
single largest consumer of energy. The United States is experiencing a
strong move toward regulations that promote high efficiency structures. California has taken the
lead and enacted regulations of significance for new construction of commercial
and residential buildings.
“Everywhere you look the impact of energy usage and
environmental concerns can be seen and felt,” Quenton Roehricht, brand manager
with the company, said. “With structures accounting for the vast majority of
energy use it is imperative from an operating cost perspective and
environmental stewardship that we seek ways to limit the amount of energy
consumed by the structures in our country.”
The new requirements make it nearly impossible for many
climate zones in California
to meet code without the use of continuous insulation. The new brochure
outlines how Parex USA’s
EIFS and Insulated Stucco Assemblies provide an easy solution. Also included is
an easy to understand method of determining how much continuous insulation is
Part 6 of Title 24 is having a significant impact on energy usage of new
buildings,” Roehricht said. “This piece was developed to help the building
community understand how these changes may impact them and the solutions that
Parex USA can provide to help them achieve meeting these new requirements.
