How to Determine the Type of Heat You Need

ADMAR’s Heating Solutions Guide

There are many factors to consider in addition to physical characteristics and fuel sources. To find out more, click on our Heating Solutions Guide above to read more about how to estimate your heat requirements.

Physical Characteristics of the Building

For a single story building, calculate the length x width x height (to roof deck) of the building. For a multi-story building, calculate length x width x height (to next floor) of each floor and add them together.

You cannot calculate the cubic feet in a multi-story building based on the interior volume alone as heat rises from floor to floor, reducing the amount of British thermal unites (BTUs) required on upper floors.

Are there openings between floors such as elevator shafts, stairwells, or open drain-waste-vents or HVAC systems where heat can rise? If so, less heat will be needed on the upper floors. As an example, a four-story building with a lot of openings between floors may require no heat at all on the fourth floor.

Significant interior partitioning can be found in many buildings with dormitories being the prime example. The partitions can significantly increase the amount of British thermal units (BTUs) required. In such cases, fans may be needed to circulate the warm air.

"Looseness" can be determined by the number of openings, including windows and doors and can significantly impact the number of British thermal unites (BTUs) required to heat the area. It may be possible that some heat could be removed as the building gets tighter.

Setting up a heater outside the building and blowing hot air inside will pressurize the building, preventing cold air infiltration. However, this method is less fuel-efficient than setting up an indirect fired heater inside the building and venting combustion out.

Fuel Source

Whether you choose direct fired, indirect fired or hydronic heat, you need a safe, reliable fuel source that is in compliance with state and local codes. Proper connection of the heating source to the fuel and ventilation, when required, are also critical. Understanding how to safely use the equipment is paramount.
