Default HVAC Questions

Any heating and cooling guys know if a 71,000 BTU furnace will heat a 2,200 square foot house. I'm looking to add on to my house and want to get an idea if I need to upgrade my couple year old furnace.

I would suggest calling Harley. He would surely offer his advice on this matter. TjRockdog also does that stuff I believe.

I know several people whom had issues because the furnace was too big for the space so before replacing get the advice of a pro.

Thanks for the help. I'm just doing a little research before I decide on adding on to my house. I'm definitely leaving the HVAC to the professionals!

It also depends on your housing arrangement. Tall two story or ranch?

That's about right. My in-laws have a 2,500 square foot house with roughly a 90,000 BTU furnace.
