**calculate**the

**baseboard**length for a 300-square-foot room that requires 3,000 watts, you would divide the required watts by 200 and 250 (the range of watts required per foot).

Herein, how do I calculate baseboard heat?

** Measure ** the length and width of the room, in feet. Multiply the length x the width to get the square footage. Multiply the square footage x 10, to give you the rough wattage of ** heating required ** for the room. Choose one or more ** baseboard heaters ** that total or exceed the ** required ** wattage ** calculation ** .

Also, how many feet of hydronic baseboard heat do I need? The watts required per square meter are for an average room, if your room is a bathroom then you ** need to ** use a minimum of a 1000W ** heater ** . If your ceiling is over 8 ** feet ** then the wattage ** needs to ** be increased by 1/4 for every 2 ** feet ** over this height.

Also to know, how do I calculate BTU for baseboard heat?

** How to Size Hot Water Baseboard Heaters **

- Measure the height of the room, the width of the room and the length of the room.
- Multiply the cubic footage of a room by 25 BTUs to determine the rough estimate of BTU requirements for the room.
- Add 25 BTU per cubic foot if your home has moderate to fair insulation.

What is a hydronic baseboard heater?

A convection (or “hot air”) ** baseboard heater ** heats a room by drawing in cooler air and pushing out warmer air. A ** hydronic ** (or “hot water”) ** baseboard heater ** , on the other hand, warms a room by ** heating ** a non-toxic fluid from within a reservoir.
