BTU Calculator
Room Name:
The efficiency of radiators, old and new, is measured in British Thermal Units (BTU). The dimensions of a room are used to calculate the amount of BTU needed to heat that room. Radiators all have a known and calculated BTU output. Using the BTU Calculator it is easy to calculate the size of radiator you need to heat your room.
1. Select the type of room. Traditionally a Lounge, Bathroom or Living area would be the warmest rooms in the house, secondly Bedrooms and finally Kitchen, Hallways and Common Areas. Our BTU calculator will take this into account.
2. From the 3 drop down options select the Length, Width & Height of the room.
3. Double Glazing, French Windows, North or South Facing will affect the BTU requirements.
4. Select a radiator - Using this drop down list you can select a particular radiator style, a family or leave it as it is to view all options.
5. Once you submit the form you will then be presented with options based upon your criteria - if you have any questions at all then please call us on 01233 850082 or send us an email.
