Hi,

How does ceiling height affect room volume / heat losses?

I have looked at the back end of the calcs and I can see the following formula to work out infiltration losses:

Infiltration heat loss = *F _{2} nV (t_{r} - t_{o}) / 3*

*How is the volume is the above formula calculated? (I assume this is what affects the heat losses in terms of the ceiling)*

*Does the ceiling height determine the volume of the room?*

*For example, we have a 1 by 1m room, that is 2m tall. *

*In the first instance there is no ceiling applied, therefore the volume is 2m^3?*

*In the second instance there is a ceiling at, say, 1m, therefore the volume is 1m^3?*

*Please confirm if my understanding is correct.*

*Kind regards*
