Heat Output

Calculate your room’s BTU requirement

What is a BTU?

A British Thermal Unit (BTU) is a measure of heat output from a radiator. Depending on the size of your room, the number and type of windows and what the room is used for, you’ll need more or less heat. If you have a higher BTU requirement, it might be better to use more than one radiator to deliver the heat you’ll need to a room. The total BTU output of several smaller radiators may meet your needs.

And follow the easy guide instructions.

Please note, this is a guide only. A radiator with insufficient output may never raise the temperature to that required. Outdoor temperatures, external walls, insulation, heated adjacent rooms (i.e. above, below and to the side) all play a part.

The boiler should be sufficient to supply all connected radiators to the sum of their maximum demand.

Larger rooms such as Living Rooms may require more than one radiator positioned evenly throughout the room. If this is the case, divide the required output between the number of radiators needed.
