Overview
This appendix includes blank copies of the Residential Compliance Forms. Compliance documentation is completed at the Building Permit Phase, the Construction Phase, and the Field Verification and Diagnostic Testing Phase. The forms and documents submitted at each of these phases are described below.

Building Permit Phase Documentation
The Standards Section 10-103(a) requires that a certificate of compliance be included on the plans when the performance approach is used. If the performance approach is utilized for compliance, the CF-1R forms are produced by the compliance software. Thermal Mass and Solar Heat Gain Coefficient calculations are performed internally by the software.

Certificate of Compliance - Residential New Construction (CF-1R)
The CF-1R summarizes the minimum energy performance specifications needed for new construction compliance, including HVAC capacity and the results of the heating and cooling load calculations need to be to be attached. The Standards require that a certificate of compliance be included on the plans. CEC approved Performance ACM software automatically generates CF-1R forms, which vary in some respects from the prescriptive CF-1R forms.

Certificate of Compliance - Residential Additions (CF-1R-ADD)
The CF-1R-ADD summarizes the minimum energy performance specifications needed to demonstrate compliance for an addition to a dwelling, including HVAC capacity and the results of the heating and cooling load calculations which are required to be attached. The Standards require that a certificate of compliance be included on the plans. CEC approved performance ACM software automatically generates CF-1R forms, which vary in some respects from the prescriptive CF-1R forms.

Certificate of Compliance - Residential Alterations (CF-1R-ALT)
The CF-1R-ALT summarizes the minimum energy performance specifications needed for an alteration to an existing dwelling, including HVAC capacity and the results of the heating and cooling load calculations need to be attached. The Standards require that a certificate of compliance be included on the plans. CEC approved performance ACM software automatically generates CF-1R forms, which vary in some respects from the prescriptive CF-1R forms.

Mandatory Measures List (MF-1R)
This document is applicable for both prescriptive and performance compliance. This reference list must be part of the building plans to help builders and inspectors reference applicable mandatory measures in the Standards.

Solar Water Heating Calculation (CF-SR)
This form is used to calculate the percent of domestic water heating that is supplied by solar water heating. The form is used to calculate the percent of solar contributed by tested solar system. All system or collector data must be based on the OG-300 test methods of the Solar Rating and Certification Corporation. This form is only available in electronic (Excel) format. Contact the Energy Commission Hotline for more information on how to access this calculation sheet.

Thermal Mass Worksheet (WS-1R)
This worksheet is completed by the documentation author when complying with the prescriptive requirements of Package C.

Area Weighted Average Calculation Worksheet (WS-2R)
This worksheet is used to calculate weight-averaged U-factors for prescriptive envelope compliance.

Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) Worksheet (WS-3R)
This worksheet is completed by the documentation author when complying with the prescriptive requirements.

Construction Phase Documentation

Installation Certificate (CF-6R)
The CF-6R is now broken into categories; ENV, LTG and MECH, and most compliance measures have a separate CF-6R form that is specific to a particular installation. A set of CF-6R documents applicable to the construction project is required to be assembled and posted at the building site. Different installing contractors are responsible for installing the water heating equipment, the windows (fenestration), the lighting system, the air distribution ducts and HVAC equipment, the measures that affect building envelope tightness, and the insulation.

Installation Certificate (CF-6R-HERS)
Some installations are required to be Field verified by a third party HERS rater. These types of installations require that installers submit forms that certify certain performance or quality specifications have been met. These performance or quality specifications will be verified by a HERS rater.

Field Verification and/or Diagnostic Testing Documentation

Certificate of Field Verification and Diagnostic Testing (CF-4R)
The CF-4R is now broken into categories; ENV, and MECH, and most compliance measures have a separate CF-4R form that is specific to a particular installation. A set of CF-4R documents applicable to the construction project is required to be assembled and posted at the building site. These document are completed by the HERS rater when field verification and/or diagnostic testing is required. These documents include information about the measurements and tests that were performed. The HERS rater verifies that the requirements for compliance credit have been met. Copies of the CF-4R are required to be provided to the Builder, HERS Provider and Enforcement Agency for every home that utilizes HER verification for compliance.
