# How many btus does a 3 ton heat pump use?

# How many BTUs and what kind of heat pump do you need to heat a 16x24 4ft deep above ground pool to a temp of 80F from the current 70F?

It takes 1 BTU to raise 1 pound of water 1 degree fahrenheit. To answer your question, you need to know two facts: (1) there are 7.48 gallons in a cubic foot, and (2) 1 gallon of water = 8.34 pounds. So, your 16 x 24 x 4 foot pool holds 1,536 cubic feet of water, which translates into 11,489 gallons… of water. Then multiply that by 8.34 pounds per gallon, to arrive at a total of 95,820 pounds of water in your pool. If you have a 100,000 BTU pool heater (meaning it delivers 100,000 BTU per hour), then for each degree Fahrenheit increase in temperature, it will require 95,820 pounds divided by 100,000 pounds per hour, or 0.96 hours. To increase your pool ten degrees from 70F to 80F will require 9.6 hours. Since some heat is constantly being lost due to evaporation, and the efficiency of the gas heater is never 100%, it will actually take a little more than than 9.6 hours. (MORE)

# How many btu s do you need to heat an inground pool?

# How many square feet does a 5000 BTU heater heat?

Answer .
There is a lot more to it than square footage. To find out the heat load on any room or home you need to have a load calculation performed. This is a process that takes into account location, construction features, etc..
With a portable heater (which is what you're talking about if it's… 5,000 BTU), you can estimate heating ability with the 10 - 15 watt per square foot rule of thumb. So, 1,500 watts (5,120 BTU) will heat about 150 - 225 square feet. To go from watts to BTU, multiply watts by 3.4. (MORE)

# How many BTU per Hour equals 1 Ton of Air Conditioning?

Air conditioners are rated in three ways, by B.T.U.'s, tons of refrigeration, or by horsepower. One ton of refrigeration removes the amount of heat needed to melt one ton of ice in 24 hours. One ton of refrigeration can remove 12,000 B.T.U.'s of heat in one hour. The B.T.U. is the amount of heat nee…ded to raise 1 lb. of pure water 1 deg F. (MORE)

# How many BTU per square feet on baseboard heat?

You need 100W per square meter. 100W equals around 341.3BTU. 1 square meter are around 10.7 square feet. You therefore need around 32 BTU per square foot.

# How many square feet will 50000 Btu heat?

# BTUS to tons?

12,000 BTU/h is referred to as a ton in most North American air conditioning applications. A BTU, short for British Thermal Unit, is a basic measure of thermal (heat) energy. One BTU is the amount of energy needed to heat one pound of water one degree Fahrenheit, measured at its heaviest point. In o…ther words, if you placed 16 ounces of water at 59Â°F into a stovetop pan and turned on the gas burner, it would take one BTU to raise the temperature of the water to 60Â°F. As more BTU's continue to flow from the gas flame, the water will eventually reach the boiling point of 212Â°F. A BTU is also the equivalent of 252 heat calories, not to be confused with the kilo-calories of food, and of approximately a third of a watt of electrical power. When speaking of cooling power, the BTU also works in reverse. The air-cooling power of an air conditioning system refers to the amount of thermal energy removed from an area. Hence a 65,000 BTU heater and a 65,000 BTU air conditioner are of roughly the same capacity and size. The higher the BTU output, the more powerful the heating or cooling system. Strangely enough, the British Thermal Unit is rarely used in Great Britain anymore, where it is considered a non-metric measurement. Even in countries which use the BTU as a standard measurement, there is some disagreement over the formula used to derive it. The thermal energy needed to raise water one degree Fahrenheit can depend on the original temperature and the method used for heating. Therefore, it is possible to get several different definitions of a BTU from different sources. This rarely has a palpable effect on consumer product information, however. Most heating and cooling systems produce thousands of BTU's, almost rendering the measurement of one BTU pointless. One is more likely to encounter smaller BTU figures during scientific experiments, where the slightest change in thermal energy may need to be calculated in terms of calories. When dealing with central air conditioning units and commercial pizza ovens, however, the BTU numbers can easily reach the hundreds of thousands. A unit of measure called the MMBTU is the equivalent of a million BTU's. Few man-made objects can generate this level of thermal energy, however. When shopping for heating or cooling systems, keep in mind that even the smallest window-mounted air conditioner or space heater can produce thousands of BTU's. The BTU numbers should primarily be used as a comparison between systems. Larger and more expensive systems should provide significantly higher BTU's than smaller ones. When deciding between similarly priced units, compare the BTU's for a better gauge of performance. Conversions One BTU is approximately: 1054-1060 joules 252-253 cal (calories, small) 0.252-0.253 kcal (kilocalories) 778-782 ftÂ·lbf (foot-pounds-force) Other conversions: 013fIn natural gas, by convention 1 MM Btu (1 million Btu, sometimes written "mm BTU") = 1.054615 GJ. Conversely, 1 gigajoule is equivalent to 26.8 m3 of natural gas at defined temperature and pressure. Associated units The BTU per hour (BTU/h) is the unit of power most commonly associated with the BTU. 1 watt is approximately 3.4 BTU/h [1] 1000 BTU/h is approximately 293 W 1 horsepower is approximately 2540 BTU/h 12,000 BTU/h is referred to as a ton in most North American air conditioning applications. A unit called the quad (short for quadrillion) is defined as 1015 BTU, which is about 1.055Ã1018 joules, and the therm is defined in the country-region United States and European Union as 100,000 BTU -but the place country-region U.S. uses the BTU59 Â°F whilst the EU uses the BTUIT. The BTU should not be confused with the Board of Trade Unit (B.O.T.U.), which is a much larger quantity of energy. (MORE)

# How many btu to heat a square foot building in Vermont?

The correct way is to determine the coefficient of heat transmission for each of the areas of the room. Multiply this factor by the square footage and then multiply by the temperature difference at design temp. Then add all the values together..
There are factors for each type of wall, floor, ceili…ng, type of window, etc. The coefficient of heat transmission, also called the "U value", is the inverse of the "R value"..
Example: A 20'X20' room with an 8' ceiling would work like this-.
20X20= 400 sq. ft (floor and ceiling) total 800 sq.'.
20X8=160X4 (walls)=640 sq.'.
R-19 insulation all around. 1/19= .053 U factor.
You want to maintain 70 degrees inside when it hits -10 outside (80 deg difference).
Total area 640+800= 1440 sq. ft..
1440X.053X80=6105.6 BTU'S/ HOUR..
Single pane windows are the worst for heat transmission. Low E are the best. U factors will vary slightly based on drywall, siding, etc. Air infiltration (leakage) also can really change the numbers too. Window manufacturers publish the U or R values for the windows and are easily obtained..
Hope this helps. (MORE)

# How many BTU per ton of wood pellets?

Within reason all woods have a potential BTU value of 8000 BTU's per pound. Oak, Ash, Balsa and Pine all have the same potential. I am sure there are some exotic woods that might violate this rule but for the sake of this question 8000 BTU/Pd will do nicely. The term potential is a theoretical maxim…um yield and, in a practical sense, can not be achieved except in the laboratory..
The key is in the weight not the species. Wood, when alive and green, has approximately 50% moisture content. Obviously, water will inhibit the conversion to heat so actual, aka possible, BTU's available to heat a home will drop according to the moisture content. When the moisture content drops to less than 20% the available BTU's will be approximately 6000 BTU's per pound. Seldom, if ever, will the average homeowner achieve greater than this as they have no control of moisture content of whatever they are burning..
Some wood pellets will perform a little better than raw wood as they have a binder that holds the pellets together like paraffin or other organic binders. Not all pellets use a binder rather they rely on tremendous forming pressure to maintain their shape during transport and handling. (MORE)
