    North shore, the Regulations refer to 'main living room'. It is defined as the largest if more than one.

    This one I find ridiculous:

    Kitchens and bathrooms will be required to have extraction fans or range-hoods
    If your bathroom only has a shower and it's got a shower-dome than that should cancel out that requirement. So will there be an assessment process so your property could be deemed exempt?

    What I find interesting about the extraction fans requirement is - it's likely to cause more harm than good. If they're not installed probably they may cause leaks where they exit the exterior cladding. And there will be shoddy install jobs for sure! Leaky building anyone?

    Plus what size does a fan need to be? And does it need to linked up to the light so it's automatic? If not, it will never be used.

    One of our rentals is completely open plan and there's no way a small extractor fan will do anything useful.

    I find the extractor fan requirement a joke! Also range-hoods, if they're not ducted to the outside they will are useless. Installing one of them is no small expense either and just like with the fans if they're not installed probably - expect leaks.

    Also are there suppliers and installers that meet the Gov't requirements and fair pricing schedule? Or can we expect another rort with costs skyrocketing - make hay while the sun shines. Call me cynical but what's the bet the meth testers are setting up shop as we speak to jump on this bandwagon.

    cheers,

    Donna

    I suspect that the "bailout rate" for LLs will be increasing, in the very near future.

    Then Taxcindarella Tooth Fairy & Co will find Housing NZ costs to be something of an 'elephant in the room.'

    Unreservedly - I hope it hurts the socialists more than they can imagine, in their worst nightmares.

    Required heating capacity


    The required heating capacity for a living room is to be calculated using the following formula:
    h = [t + v + (f 40) ] 1000,
    Where t = [ d + (e g) ] (b − c),
    d = (a more complicated formula I can't copy and paste),
    e is a slightly shorter complicated formula
    and
    v = w y z (b − c)
    h
    is the required heating capacity for the living room (kW)
    t
    is the transmission heat loss of the living room (W) calculated under clause 3
    v
    is the ventilation heat loss of the living room (W) calculated under clause 4
    f
    is the area of the floor of the living room (m2).
    d
    is the transmission heat loss in respect of the living room’s building elements that are part of the tenancy building’s thermal envelope (W), calculated under subclause (2)
    e
    is the transmission heat loss in respect of the building elements that form the boundaries of the living room but are not part of the building’s thermal envelope (W), calculated under subclause (3)
    g
    is the temperature adjustment factor for building elements that are not part of the tenancy building’s thermal envelope, being 0.5
    b
    is the required internal temperature, being 18C
    c
    is the assumed external temperature for the premises as set out in clause 5.
    w
    is the internal volume of the living room (m3)
    y
    is the assumed air change rate of the living room, being 1.0
    z
    is the assumed value for the density of air multiplied by the specific heat of air, being 0.34 Wh/m3K
    + a few more for the bits I couldn't copy and paste.

    Anyone have a calculator and doctorate in mathematics I can borrow?

    No.

    But there is a Wellie PhD you can borrow.

    I've worked out my V, 522.24. How do I work out my H?

    I'm smiling at this.
    The required heating capacity calculation is amazing.
    Will any LL be able to calculate that there's enough heating?
    Will the TT be able to decide if the heating is sufficient?
    Would you need to bring a heating expert to a TT hearing? Would that be allowed?
    I suspect the magical calculator won't be able to handle every house/dwelling.
    I suspect no normal person will be able to input their main living room data correctly.

    What tenant can afford to run the required three 12kW heat pumps???
    Gonna have to boost that winter benefit.

    I've just enrolled in my first year of a mathematics degree funded by the COL so I can understand this simple calculation.
