Sizing a radiator for a room is not
as easy as just putting in what was already there, radiators are
now more efficient than they were in years past and as such
rooms need to be re-calculated so that you are not over heating
the room with a radiator of too much output and therefore using
more energy than is required. Using the calculator below you
will be able to accurately size your radiators and then find the
ideal size for you room. Not only meaning you will feel
comfortable in the room but also be safe in the knowledge that
you are only using the amount of energy necessary and save
yourself money on fuel bills.
Fill in the details of the room you wish to add,
then click the 'Add Room' button. A summary of the rooms
you have added can be found in the section below.
Below you will see the outputs of the radiators
you require in BTU (British Thermal Units). Adding the
total for all the rooms in your house or flat will give
you the demand in BTUs for the whole house. Add approx
12,000 BTU to the total for a hot water cylinder and 10%
for general losses. This will then give you the boiler
size you need for your house.
