Garage Heaters: Calculating the Size of your Heating System
- Measure the square footage of your garage floor area. To get the square footage, multiply the length by the width of the interior. For example, look at a garage that is 20 feet by 24 feet. You would calculate the square footage by multiplying 20 x 24 which equals = 480 square feet.
- Now multiply the square footage by the height of the ceilings to get the total cubic footage of the garage volume to be heated. Using the ceiling height of 8 feet and the square footage of 480, we would multiply 8 x 480 which equals = 3,840 cubic feet.
- Now we subtract the lowest seasonal temperature from the temperature we want to keep the space at during the winter to determine the temperature rise your heater is required to generate. If your seasonal outside low temperature is -20 degrees Fahrenheit (use Fahrenheit because of the BTU scale) and you want to keep your garage at 68 degrees F, we calculate the temperature difference between the two which is 68 – (-20) = 88.
- We can now calculate the number of British thermal units (BTUs) required to raise the temperature inside the space to the desired temperature. You need to know roughly how well the garage is insulated to get the last value for the equation: (insulation quality) times (total cubic feet) times (desired heat rise) divided by 1.6 = How Much BTUs are required. In this formula, use “5” for no insulation, “1.5” for little insulation, “1” for average insulation and “0.5” for very good insulation. Using average insulation and the calculation results so far, the formula looks like this: (1 x 3,840 x 88) /1.6 = 211,200 Btu.
- Add 10 percent to the Btu requirement to provide a safety margin for unusually cold weather. Adding 10 percent yields a minimum Btu requirement per hour of 232,320.
