In Response To: heating (steve young)

Total BTU consumption for a house is based on all heat loss factors.

These include thickness of insulation, type of foundation (basement, crawl, slab), number of windows/doors, height of ceilings, volume of house to be heated...etc.

Typical a representative of a heating supply company will come to your home and assess all these heat loss factors, calculate how many BTUs are need to offset the heat loss in your home, and size the heating system accordingly...

This is usually done for FREE by the heating supplier in hopes of getting your business.

Have several competing heating contractor or suppliers assess your house and bid the job. The more estimates you get, the more the real cost will be clustered around the middle.
