§ 1670. Scope.
These regulations establish the California Home Energy Rating System (herein referred to as HERS) Program pursuant to Public Resources Code Section 25942, including procedures for the training and certification of Raters, and a certification program for home energy rating system organizations (herein referred to as Providers) and for home energy rating services (herein referred to as Rating Systems). The HERS Technical Manual, Publication CEC-400-2008-012, December 2008, which is defined below, shall be incorporated by reference.
The California HERS Program regulations apply to the use of HERS Raters to provide two key services:
(i) Field verification and diagnostic testing as required by Title 24, Part 6.
(ii) Whole-House Home Energy Ratings of newly constructed and existing homes.
NOTE: In the course of providing a California Whole-House Home Energy Rating, a home energy audit is performed. The California HERS Program includes the case where the energy audit portion of the rating process is completed but a California Whole-House Home Energy Rating score is not designated. When describing that case, these regulations refer to that portion of the rating process as a California Home Energy Audit.
