A fenestration product's U-factor shall be rated in accordance with NFRC 100 or the applicable default U-factor set forth in Table A.5.205.1-A.
Exception: If the fenestration product is a skylight or is site-built fenestration in a building covered by the nonresidential standards with less than 10,000 square feet of site-built fenestration, the default U-factor may be calculated as set forth in Reference Nonresidential Appendix NA6 of the California Energy Commission 2008 Building Energy Efficiency Standards for Residential and Nonresidential Buildings.
A fenestration product's SHGC shall be rated in accordance with NFRC 200 for site-built fenestration or use the applicable default SHGC set forth in Table A5.205.1-B.
Exception: If the fenestration product is a skylight or is site-built fenestration in a building covered by the nonresidential standards with less than 10,000 square feet of site-built fenestration, the default SHGC may be calculated as set forth in Reference Nonresidential Appendix NA6 of the California Energy Commission 2008 Building Energy Efficiency Standards for Residential and Nonresidential Buildings.
Fenestration products shall:
- Have a temporary label (or label certificate for site- built fenestration) meeting the requirements of Section 10-111(a)1 of Title 24, Part 1 not to be removed before inspection by the enforcement agency, listing the certified U-factor and SHGC and certifying that the air leakage requirements of Section A126.96.36.199.1 are met for each product line; and
- Have a permanent label (or label certificate for site-built fenestration) meeting the requirements of Section 10-111(a)2 of Title 24, Part 1 if the product is rated using NFRC procedures.
Before an occupancy permit is granted, site-built fenestration products in other than low-rise residential buildings shall be certified as meeting the Acceptance Requirements for Code Compliance, as specified by the Reference Nonresidential Appendix NA7 of the California Energy Commission 2008 Building Energy Efficiency Standards for Residential and Nonresidential Buildings to ensure that site-built fenestration meet Standards requirements, including a matching label certificate for each product installed and be readily accessible at the project location. A Certificate of Acceptance shall be submitted to the enforcement agency that certifies that the fenestration product meets the acceptance requirements.
Exception: Fenestration products removed and reinstalled as part of a building alteration or addition.
Field-fabricated fenestration and field-fabricated exterior doors may be installed only if the compliance documentation has demonstrated compliance for the installation using U-factors from Table A5.205.1-A and SHGC values from Table A5.205.1-B. Field-fabricated fenestration and field-fabricated exterior doors shall be caulked between the fenestration products or exterior door and the building and shall be weatherstripped.
Exception: Unframed glass doors and fire doors need not be weatherstripped or caulked.
SLAB INSULATION REQUIREMENTS FOR HEATED SLAB-ON-GRADE
|INSULATION LOCATION||INSULATION ORIENTATION||INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS||CLIMATE ZONE||INSULATION R-FACTOR|
|Outside edge of heated slab, either inside or outside the foundation wall||Vertical||From the level of the top of the slab, down 16 inches or to the frost line, whichever is greater. Insulation may stop at the top of the footing where this is less than the required depth. For below grade slabs, vertical insulation shall be extended from the top of the foundation wall to the bottom of the foundation (or the top of the footing) or to the frost line, whichever is greater.||1 — 15||5|
|Between heated slab and outside foundation wall||Vertical and Horizontal||Vertical insulation from top of slab at inside edge of outside wall down to the top of the horizontal insulation. Horizontal insulation from the outside edge of the vertical insulation extending 4 feet toward the center of the slab in a direction normal to the outside of the building in plan view.||1 — 15||5|

Urea formaldehyde foam insulation may be applied or installed only if:
If insulation is installed in the existing attic of a low-rise residential building, the R-value of the total amount of insulation (after addition of insulation to the amount, if any, already in the attic) shall be at least R-38 in climate zones 1 and 16; and R-30 in all other climate zones.
Exception: Where the accessible space in the attic is not large enough to accommodate the required R-value, the entire accessible space shall be filled with insulation provided such installation does not violate Section 1203.2 of Title 24, Part 2, California Building Code.
Insulation placed on top of a suspended ceiling with removable ceiling panels shall be deemed to have no affect on envelope heat loss; and
Exception: When there are conditioned spaces with a combined floor area no greater than 2,000 square feet in an otherwise unconditioned building and when the average height of the space between the ceiling and the roof over these spaces is greater than 12 feet, insulation placed in direct contact with a suspended ceiling with removable ceiling panels shall be an acceptable method of reducing heat loss from a conditioned space and shall be accounted for in heat loss calculations.
Insulation shall be installed below the roofing membrane or layer used to seal the roof from water penetration unless the insulation has a maximum water absorption of 0.3 percent by volume when tested according to ASTM C272.
Note: Vents, which do not penetrate the roof deck, that are designed for wind resistance for roof membranes are not within the scope of Section A188.8.131.52.2.
In order to meet the requirements of Sections 141, 142, 143(a)1, 149(b)1B, 151(f)12, 152(b)1H or 152(b)2 of Title 24, Part 6, a roofing product's thermal emittance and 3-year aged solar reflectance shall be certified and labeled according to the requirements of Section 10-113 of Title 24, Part 1.
Exception: Roofing products that are not certified according to Section 10-113 of Title 24, Part 1 shall assume the following default aged reflectance/emittance values:
