Manual J Question - Number of occupants, multiple floors
I'm doing a Manual J calculation (using version 7) for a two-story, with a finished basement, house.
For the number of occupants (for sensible and latent heat gain), the example in the Manual J book specifies using one more person than the number of bedrooms in the house.
But, my question is: if I'm doing a floor-by-floor (room by room) calculation, where do I put the occupants? Do I just put them in the dining room/living room on the first floor, then ignore them as occupants when doing the calculations for the bedrooms?
