Calculating Conditioned Floor Area
I’m calculating the conditioned floor area to determine ventilation needs for my new construction home. Is the floor of an open loft included?
My home is a 26 x 48 timberframe on a slab. Half of the ground floor–26 x 24–is an open “great room” with kitchen, dining, and living space. Above the kitchen is a 13 x 12 loft open to the “great room.” Is the area of the loft included in the total conditioned floor area?
