## How many BTUs does it take to heat a 2 car garage?

Single-car garages (0-450 sq ft) require a 2000-3000 W unit (or 6,800-9,000 BTUs/hr) Two-car garages (450-700 sq ft) require a 3600-7000 W unit (electric heaters) or 12,000-24,000 BTUs/hr (for the propane ones)

## How many BTUs do I need to heat my 24×24 garage?

There is a basic rule of thumb for forced-air heaters, which is to heat a two- to 2-1/2 car garage and a three-car garage with 60,000 Btu.

## How many BTUs do I need for my garage heater?

Roughly the formula comes out to this: (Insulation * Cubic Feet of Garage * Temperature Rise) / 1.6 = # of BTU. In an area of 3,840 cubic feet, with a 35 degree temperature rise with average insulation (or 1) would come out to this: (1 * 3840 * 35) / 1.6 = 84,000 BTU.

## How many BTU do I need for a 20×20 garage?

As a basic rule, the figure will be between 30 and 60 BTUs per square foot.

## How can I heat my garage cheaply?

How to Heat a Garage for Year-Round Use

- Install Better Insulation. The Cheapest Way to Heat Your Garage.
- Hook Up an Electric Space Heater. The Simplest Way to Heat a Garage.
- Fire Up a Combustion Space Heater. The Fastest Way to Heat a Garage.
- Install a Ductless Mini-Split System.
- Add Radiant Heating.

## How many BTUs do I need for a 1000 sq ft garage?

There are calculators available to help homeowners factor the right sized unit, but there are also some rules of thumb that can be followed. For example, a 300 square foot room typically requires 7,000 BTUs to maintain a comfortable temperature, while a 1,000 square foot room requires 18,000 BTUs.

## How many BTU do I need to heat a 20×20 room?

To determine the number of BTUs per square foot that you need to heat a room, simply multiply the square footage by 20 BTUs per square foot. For example, if a room has 1,000 square feet, you would require 20,000 BTUs to heat it.

## Can a garage heater be too big?

Too small, and it will run up your power bill trying to heat a space beyond its capacity. Too big, and you’ll waste money on heating power you can’t use. Garage heaters also become physically larger as they increase in size, and a large heater in a small space is cumbersome and difficult to mount.

## How do I calculate what size heater I need for my garage?

How to Estimate the Heater Size for a Garage

- Measure the length and width of your garage.
- Check your garage’s insulation.
- Divide your total square footage by 200, and then multiply your answer by 9,000 to determine the BTU requirements for an uninsulated garage.
- Find a heater with a BTU output that matches your results.

## How many square feet will 60000 Btu heat?

A standard that is used by heating and cooling equipment companies is to provide at least 25 to 30 Btu of heat per square feet in the home for a moderate to warm climate. A mid-sized home of 2,000 square feet would need approximately 50,000 to 60,000 Btu to heat it properly.

## Where should heater be placed in garage?

To be most effective, garage heaters should be placed in the coldest corner of the room and directed towards the center.

## What size room will 12000 Btu cool?

12,000 BTUs will cover 400 sq. ft. (3,200 cubic feet) 13,000 BTUs will cover 450 sq.

## How do I calculate BTU?

Step 1: Measure The Square Footage (Length, Width, Height Exact To 0.25 Ft)

- Square Footage = Measured Length x Measured Width.
- Square Footage = 16 3/4 ft (Length) x 14 1/2 ft (Width) = 243 sq ft.
- BTU Requirement = 500 sq ft x 20 BTU per sq ft = 10,000 BTU.
- Accurate BTU Calculation = 20,000 BTU * 1.1 + 600 BTU = 22,600 BTU.
