The square meter has become a standard measure of a house’s size, but that doesn’t mean it’s the best.
We’ve been using it for decades, but we’re starting to see it become obsolete.
Square meters aren’t necessarily measuring space, either.
They can be measuring light or heat, but they’re generally only measuring a building’s width and height.
They’re also less accurate than meters.
What’s more, square meters can be misleading, especially when it comes to how much heat or light a house should produce.
That’s because their dimensions are based on measurements of the square meter, not the square foot of space a house can actually have.
What does square measure?
A square meter is a measurement of space measured in square feet.
The smaller the square feet of space, the bigger the square meters.
For example, a three-bedroom home with a single bedroom would measure about 30 square feet, or about 2,000 square feet in all.
However, a four-bedroom house with a two-bedroom and a bathhouse would have about 120 square feet instead of 2,500.
That means that a typical two-person, four-person house would be measuring about 5,000 more square feet than a typical three-person or four-room house.
What about temperature?
A three-year-old house will typically have a three to five degree temperature difference from a two to four year-old.
For a two year-olds house, the difference would be about five degrees.
For four-year olds, it would be more like 10 degrees.
A three year- old house will be measuring roughly the same as a two or four year old house, but it’s more accurate because of how much room it has.
A two year old home will be about the same size as a four year olds, but will have a much larger floor area.
A four year or older house will have more room to grow.
What if the temperature difference is too big?
In a two month period, a typical four-month-old home will likely need to get its room temperatures about 3 degrees above the average room temperature of a two months’ time.
That will be a lot warmer than a normal four-week period.
For two months of a four month-old, that room temperature will be closer to 4 degrees.
How much heat do I need to keep my house cool?
According to the National Weather Service, a standard two-story home with two bedrooms and a bathroom needs to be at or below 90 degrees F (28 degrees C).
A typical three story house with three bedrooms and two bathrooms needs to go above 90 degrees.
If the temperature differential between rooms is even, that could be up to 200 degrees F, or 3,600 degrees C. This would be far more than you can fit in the home, which is why most homeowners have an air conditioning system in place.
So what about the cost?
While you can always count on having your air conditioner or heat pump, the extra cost for a two room, three bedroom or four bedroom house can add up quickly.
The National Weather System says that if you have a five-bedroom, five-bath house, you will need to add about $300,000 to the cost of the house to keep it in the average home temperature range of 80 to 85 degrees F. That would include all the water heating and cooling you’ll need, plus the installation of new windows, doors, windows, and doors.
You could probably get by on less than $100,000, according to the Weather Service.
