How big a house will a 75000 btu furnace heat?
Heat load calculations need to be conducted for home to determine the proper size furnace. There is no simple answer to this question. There are a number of factors that can effect what size your furnace should be. Example: square footage, duct work size, insulation factors, windows etc. I recommend having a heating professional look at your home and conduct a heat load calculation. Over sized and under sized furnaces can cause you number out problems in the long run.

\nWhat ever it take to keep you warm - and add moisture to keep it toasty.
Yes, a 14,000 BTU furnace will heat your 500 square foot room justfine. Make sure you test it out to make sure you don't turn it uptoo high at first.
A general rule of thumb in estimating the size of furnace needed toheat a home is to find the square footage of the home, and multiplythat by 45 BTU (British Thermal Unit). Fo…r a 3200 square foot homea furnace somewhere in the range of 144,000 BTU would be areasonable estimation of the furnace size needed to heat the home.To find the most efficient furnace for any given home, however, itwould be best to contact an HVAC professional who can perform aload-calculation.

This is how a furnace heats your home.. When the thermostat calls for heat, a signal is sent to the gas valve. If you have an older unit, the gas valve checks to see that the… thermocouple sees the pilot and if it does, the gas valve opens to send gas to the burners.. If you have a newer furnace, the thermostat sends a signal to start the pilit ignition sequence (either spark or hot plate) and then the flame rod sees the pilot (of the hot plate is up to temp.) the gas valve opens to send gas to the burner.. The fan control will then send a signal to the blower to start up. As the temp rises in the room, the thermostat sends a signal back to the gas valve to close as it reaches the set point on the thermostat and the blower continues to run until the set point on the fan control is reached and it shuts off ending the cycle.. If you would like futher in depth information, check out my book on Amazon called Forced hot air furnace - troubleshooting and repair.
The sunlight millions of years ago allowed organic life and materials to develop and populate the earth. After the normal life cycles of generations of these plants and beings… ended they returned to the earth and decayed, becoming what are now the gas and oil fields that produce the fossil fuels we have been using for nearly 200 years to power most everything in our daily lives.

You take the size of your home in square feet and times it by how many rooms you have. A 70,000 BTU furnace will heat a house 1600 square feet.
If your home requires 2 million Btu of heat energy from the furnace what is the cost in dollars to heat the house with natural gas assuming 60 percent furnace efficiency?
If your home actually requires the 2MM btu then that is the output you need, if your furnace is 60% efficient then you would need 3,333,333 btu input to produce 2,000,000 btu …output, There are 1000 btu per cubic foot of natural gas therfore you would burn 3333 cubic feet of gas to produce 2MM btu. Your question cannot be answered here because I don`t know what you pay per cubic foot of ng nor did you give a time frame for how long you plan on heating the house. But now you know the figures and you can do the math.
It heats all the square feet in the network of roomsthrough which it's distributed. How warm it heats them, and how fast, depends on the height of theceilings, and on the r…ate of loss of heat through the walls, which in turndepends on the outside temperature and the insulation efficiency of the walls.
48,000 input or output? If 48K is the input to an 80% efficient furnace, than the output would only be 38,400. It also depends on where the house is located, because 48K will …heat a much larger house in Miami than it would in Minneapolis. You need to post more info to get a worthwhile answer. But to give you an idea I heat 1000 sq ft in NJ easily with a 52,500 80% efficient furnace which yields 42,000 output.
I cannot really answer that depends on your insulation of walls heat leaks windows and so forth. NOT TO MENTION EFFICIENCY OF HEATING.
Cost of a furnace depends on the efficiency, the brand unit,transitions needed to be made, and the cost of a qualityinstallation. I recommend getting estimates from qualified …andreputable HVAC companies.
In 2 of the 4 estimates for a new furnace for here in Southwest PA, the answer is yes. This house is a Cape Cod style and was built in 1950. But then 2 said I'd need over 100,…000. So I'm wondering too! I am assuming you mean 80,000 output, not input. An 80,000 input rated at 80% efficiency only has an output of 64,000. A 95% efficient 80,000 input will give you 76,000 output. Go with the people who did a proper heat loss calculation on your home since any two 1800 square foot houses could have different heating/cooling requirements. You also don`t want to oversize either. When I replaced mine 3 years ago I went from 100,000 to 52,000 and those are the input ratings at 80% & I`m doing just fine.
