CORRECTLY SIZE YOUR FIREPLACE (Kw)




Here's how you can correctly size a fireplace (Kw) for your room:


STEP 1

Calculate your room  volume (m3)

Measure your room width, lenght and height, as illustrated in the figure below. Multiply those figures with each other to get your room volume.


STEP 2

Multiply the cubic meters by the relevant insulation factor below:

Poorly insulated room: 0.06

Well insulated room: 0.035

*The result, measured in kilowatts, is the minimum heat output required.
