Enter the house length (ft) and the house width (ft) into the House Area Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the House Area. 

House Area Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the House Area.

HA = HL * HW

  • Where HA is the House Area (ft^2)
  • HL is the house length (ft) 
  • HW is the house width (ft) 

How to Calculate House Area?

The following example problems outline how to calculate House Area.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the house length (ft). 
    • The house length (ft) is given as: 50.
  2. Next, determine the house width (ft). 
    • The house width (ft) is provided as: 50.
  3. Finally, calculate the House Area using the equation above: 

HA = HL * HW

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

HA = 50 * 50 = 2,500 (ft^2)


Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

house length (ft) = 60

house width (ft) = 560

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator..

HA = HL * HW = ?
