Does the energy efficiency of a home change if the plate height changes (moves from 8 ft. to 9 ft.)?
Our company has recently converted all of our plans from a 8-ft. plate height on the first floor to 9-ft. plate height. The upper floor plate height is remaining at 8 ft. We are trying to figure out if the added volume will affect the overall energy efficiency of the home.
