There are several factors that can affect the amount of BTU that you need. You should first take into account elevation. Floors on upper levels will receive heat from the sun and therefore will need less heating power. You should also take into account the insulation in your property and the direction of sunlight. For example, rooms at the front and back of the house may get direct sunlight through the windows during the day, requiring less heating.
Another important factor is windows. If you have single glaze windows, chances are you’ll need more heating. Vice versa, if you have double gazed or triple glazed windows, you’ll need slightly less. You should also consider the moisture levels in the room you’re looking to install in. Kitchens and bathrooms, for example, have a higher moisture level than other rooms. These rooms will need less heating than others, as appliances such as stoves and showers give off warmth.
