of a zone refers to the total square footage footprint of the zone.
This data should be entered as square feet. A rectangular zone
Area can be calculated as the length x width of the room. However,
irregularly shaped zones (e.x. L shaped zones) need to have all the
rectangles of the zone added together.
Area is used to determine:
- Heat Gain of the Floor - This is the total space of the
floor used to heat the zone.
- Heat Loss of the Ceiling - This is the total space of the
area above the zone which will figure into the heat loss of the zone.
of material need to heat the room - We will use the area of the zone to
estimate the amount of material the room will require; e.x. Tubing,
electric mats, insulation, fastening hardware, etc.
