Heater size for 14x6.5 v house ?

6 posts in this topic

I have a 6.5'x12' and an Empire 15,000 direct vent is plenty for me. I think it depends on how well yours is insulated and sealed.

I have a 6x14 and run a 10,000 btu none vented heater and it's sized just right. If you go vented I would go around 15,000 btu sice there not as efficient as non vented

6.5 X 17' V-nose. A 16k vented furnace does pretty well, but it does take a little while to warm to temp on those cold days. After that, it's usually pretty good. I also have 4 pretty good size windows, though.

Do you have problems with condensation with the none vented type ? I have an older 10,000 none vented heater I could use but was looking @ direct vent. Maybe I can save some $$. ??

I do have problems with condensation but if have the windows cracked it's not real bad. but if you heat with it for a few days in a row and then shut it off and let the house cool you will get about 1/2 of frost on the ceiling and walls. then when you heat it back up it will drip on you. I would get a vented unit if you plan on leaving the heat on low so the holes don't freeze. but if you turn it off when you leave they work good just a bit humid.If I did things over and had the money I would do the vented hans down.
