How significant is the cost to heat/cool the extra volume created by vaulted &
cathedral ceilings? Of course it would vary by size, but is the extra volume a
big cost once it's brought to temperature the first time?
Well ... if it takes so much energy to heat 10 ft cu, then it will
take twice as much to heat 20 ft cu. For ease of calculation, assume
standard construction/insulation and a cathedral with a 45 degree
slope ... and assume the wall height in the area below is the same
height as the peak is above the wall. That would make the ft cu in the
cathedral part 50% the volume of the room below it. So that would
be ... let's see now ... 50% more energy to heat or cool the room with
the cathedral ceiling ... period , ... er .
But I do like my cathedral ceilings, and I do have fans installed up
there to circulate the hot air in the winter.
WOW WOW WOW
You guys are dumb. Learn how to do a heat load calculation.

How many fish would it comfortably hold and what IS the
btu gain/loss of a fish while active or at rest?
However, I would imagine your question to be, an entirely
DIFFERENT question which is completely unrelated to this thread.
