Adding a wall furnace to your room can open up a world of comfort during the cold winter months. However, if wall furnace isn't sized properly, you could wind-up worse off than before!
If your wall furnace is too small, it will run constantly while trying to meet the demand, but never get the room to the temperature you want. The furnace will also suffer from overuse and experience premature damage.
On the other hand, if the wall furnace is too large, you'll probably experience large temperature swings throughout the day. You'll also see lower than expected energy efficiency due to frequent cycling of the unit. This frequent starting and stopping could damage your system over time, as well. Also, don't forget about the extra upfront cost of buying a larger wall furnace than you need!
So how do I find the right size wall furnace for my space? A common, misguided way is to use simple, rule-of-thumb sizing methods like square footage to size your wall furnace. Unfortunately, there are many other factors that can raise or lower your BTU requirements dramatically, such as your climate, building structure, and more.
