RE: 1997 Standard Building
Dear Mr. Beicker,
Attics not used for habitable purposes shall have provisions for the emission of excess heat. This would require "ventting" of the attic space. However, if the attic space is included within the conditioned space, i.e., the roof assembly Is insulated and the attic space is not separated from the habitable space with insulation, the code official may not require provisions for the emission of excess heat from the attic space.
We are pleased to provide you with the opinions stated herein. It should be noted, however, that the final Interpretation is the responsibility of the local building official.
