Home Upgrade as implemented by SCE/SoCalGas (please contact ICF for more information):
Mechanical Ventilation Policy Change:
The QA/QC Inspection Guidelines V6 went into effect on April 1, 2016. An update was made to the Mechanical Ventilation (MV) policy. The trigger for when MV is required has stayed the same: if the Building Airflow Standard (BAS) is < 70%, MV must be installed. For projects submitted in the Reservation stage after April 1, please note that the new MV policy will be enforced. The Program has developed a calculator to assist Participating Contractors with the calculation for the minimum CFM capacity needed when MV is required. The calculator can be accessed on the Contractor Website in the Reference Materials section.
Simultaneous Project Submission Requirements:
As of May 15, 2016 any new project reservations received will be limited to a maximum of two total Home Upgrade projects. Additional Home Upgrade projects beyond the maximum of two will not be accepted. After the second project, future projects are required to be an Advanced Home Upgrade Custom project. Advanced Home Upgrade Custom projects do not have a submission maximum.
Updated Combustion Appliance Safety Form:
An updated Combustion Appliance Safety (CAS) testing form is available here
for your use. The CAS form is up to date with the newly released
QA/QC Inspection Guidelines
and is meant as a collection form and reference for your use. This form is not required in your project submissions, however you will need to provide the data on this form if requested by the program during the submission process.
