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 much BTU do I need for garage?

What size garage heater do I need for a one car garage? You can calculate the ideal garage heater for your garage using the formula of size (in cubic feet) times 0.133 times the desired temperature rise. These factors vary, but we generally recommend an 8,000 – 12,000 BTU garage heater for a one car garage.

## How many BTUs does it take to heat a 4 car garage?

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

## 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 many BTU AC do I need for a 2 car garage?

If you have a typical two-car garage, it should measure somewhere around 20 feet wide by 20 feet deep. A 400-square-foot space like this requires a 9,000 to 10,000 BTU air conditioner, according to Energy Star.

## How many square feet will 40000 Btu heat?

To heat a 2,000 square foot home, you will need approximately 40,000 BTU’s of heating power.

## How many BTU do I need for a 12×12 room?

Calculated BTU: If you want to properly cool down a 300 square foot area (or room), you need a 6,000 BTU air conditioner. Obviously, the problem arises when you have a tiny 12×12 room, for example. According to the US Department of Energy directive, an air conditioner’s most appropriate size would be 2,880 BTU unit.

## How many BTUs do I need for a 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 to heat 1500 square feet?

A 1,500-square-foot home will require between 45,000 to 90,000 BTUs. A 1,800-square-foot home will require between 55,000 to 110,000 BTUs. A 2,100-square-foot home will require between 65,000 to 125,000 BTUs.

## How many BTUs do I need for a 900 square foot garage?

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) Three-car or bigger garages (700-900 sq ft) need a 7000-9000 W unit (or 24,000-31,000 BTUs/hr).

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

However, an electric garage heater with 3,000 watts is usually needed to heat a 2-car garage. The best gas garage heater for a 2-car garage usually has a rating of about 18,000 BTUs to adequately heat the space.

## How do I calculate what size heater I need?

To calculate the size unit heater required for your space, use the following formula: Calculate the cubic footage of the space to be heated by multiplying building length x width x ceiling height. A 30 x 40 pole barn with 14 foot average ceilings* will have (30x40x14=) 16,800 cubic feet of space to heat.
