Physical Characteristics of the Building
1. What size (in cubic feet) is the building? Single Story? Multi-Story?
You cannot calculate the cubic feet in a multi -story building based on the interior volume alone because heat rises from floor to floor, reducing the amount of BTUs required on upper floors.
2. Is it a multi-story building?
Example: a four-story building with a lot of openings between floors may require no heat on the fourth floor.
3. Does the building have a lot of partitions?
Significant interior partitioning, like that found in dormitories, can significantly increase the amount of BTUs required. In cases like this, fans are needed to circulate the warm air.
4. How tight is the building?
Looseness (number of openings like windows and doors) significantly impacts the number of BTUs required.
It may be possible some heat could actually be removed as the building gets tighter.
5. Pressurizing building
Setting up a heater outside the building and blowing hot air into the building 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.
Just as important as finding the correct heating solution for your application is determining the proper fuel source. Whether you choose direct fired, indirect fired or hydronic heat, you need a safe, reliable fuel source that is in compliance with local/state 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.
There are many factors to consider in addition to the physical characteristics and fuel sources noted above.
