Heated Square Feet


Recommended Posts

In NJ, the building code defines habitable space, the local Land Use Ordinances have a way to define the size of a building, the real estate industry has their way of advertising the size of the building, the builders have another way that they like to define the square footage, and then the landlords use another system. Yikes.

Around here it makes a diff when permitting a bldg, with different fees for heated or no. BTW the building code still does not require cooling for dwelling, just heating. I have met realtors on site who refuse to discuss square footage because they claim it can be a bone of contention.

He's probably tired of the blank look when he says 'conditioned space', so now it is 'heated space'. And good point, AC does not come in to the equation, but it should.

But what about the crawlspace? That area is required to be conditioned here. Double the square footage, minus the garage. [:-magnify
