heat distribution

If the bathroom has no exterior walls, it will not need heat. If it is next to some heat source that is adequate, it will need no hot air. If there's a heat lamp/fixture in the room, it may be fine.

Most codes I am aware of state all habitable rooms will be heated, only if required. A well insulated outside wall, in a bathroom with no window, might need so little heat, as to make it so, a waste of time...

If the bath proves chilly, a great solution is an electric radiant setup! Cheap to install, only on when needed, and easy to install (if - you're going to re-floor anyhow)

    Encounted a 5 year old residence with no heat distributed to main bath. Heat is a gas/fha. Is there any regulation requiring heat to this area. If so, where do I find this
    information ie codes etc.
