Heat Loss PER HOUR

In reply to average heat loss, time before furnace cuts on by meyhoed on December 21st, 2004 01:29 PM [Go to top of thread]

When you seal and insulate the house, the heater will run a shorter time. If you find that you need 40,000 btu PER HOUR to heat a house, and you install a 40,000 btu PER HOUR furnace, it will run the full HOUR in the coldest weather. Shorter cycles in the coldest weather tell you that the heater is larger than needed, so an 80,000 btu PER HOUR heater will only need to run 1/2 an HOUR in the coldest weather in a 40,000 btu per HOUR heat loss house, WITH SHORTER RUN CYCLES. heat/cool right-sizing

The Senate and House can not find a suitable health plan for the nation; they should open their own exclusive health plan booklet and start reading.
