exterior_ceiling_area – Used to calculate envelope_UA and house_content_heat_transfer_coeff.

Synopsis

module residential;
class house {
  double exterior_ceiling_area[sf];
};

Remarks

This is an automatically calculated value, not a variable that the user may set.

It is calculated by:

 exterior_ceiling_area = floor_area * exterior_ceiling_fraction / number_of_stories

Default

Using all default values:

[math]2500\text{ft}^2 * \frac{1}{1} = 2500\text{ft}^2[/math]

Therefore the default exterior_ceiling_area is 2500 square feet, which equals the default floor_area.
