How do you calculate BTUs?

Asked by Nevaeh Zuniga

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. A simple formula to determine your heating needs is: (desired temperature change) x (cubic feet of space) x .133 = BTUs needed per hour.
