Would this heater be efficient in a 40by40 pole barn with 14 foot ceiling ?

Asked by JS December 5, 2018

Answer

The concept of efficiency is one of those things that means different things to different people; similar to the word organic. The heat exchanger in this unit is designed to extract 80% of the heat from the flue gas. Thus it is efficiency rating of 80%. Twenty percent of the heat is left in the flue gas so that the water in the exhaust does not condense and rot the heat exchanger. That is just straight math. Every heating devise has a specific efficiency rating, typically between 80 and 96 percent. However I think you may be asking me something different. You may be asking me how effective it will be at heating this building. That I cannot answer based on the information provided. For example it would be a lot more effective if this building is in Florida versus Alaska. The proper way to determine the capacity you need is to do what is called a heat loss calculation. There are plenty of good free programs on line that do this function. You enter dimensions, location, construction type, etc. and it will calculate the amount of heat the structure will lose on the coldest hour of the coldest day of the year. With garages I sometimes go up from there if I am going to keep it at a low temp and expect to be able to raise the temp on a cold winter’s day. Chris 978 651 3301

40X60 20 FT CEILING HOW BIG

Asked by JIM November 2, 2017
1
Answer

There is no direct relationship between square footage of floor space and how much heating capacity you need to install. When it is suggested there is, the formulas typically end up over sizing the product in the vast majority of cases which greatly decreased the inefficiency and longevity of the equipment. As am sure you can envision the same structure if located in Alaska is going to need a lot more capacity than it would if located in Florida. The proper way to size heating is to do a heat loss calculation. There are many free programs on line that will do this for you. Basically you enter room sizes, window sizes, construction type, geographic location, etc. and the program will calculate how much heat the structure will lose on the coldest hour of the coldest day of the typical year. Selecting the capacity that is matched to the actual load you will get the longest and most efficient run times. In a building with this much cubic volume I would bet you would want multiple units if you want a consistent temperature throughout the space.

does this have a piliot light or is it electric start

Asked by bad32 November 28, 2015

Answer

This unit utilizes electronic ignition. The Department of Energy (DOE) guidelines changed a few years ago. Basically the new standards put standing pilot out of existence. There may be certain sub category based on BTU output or application that were grandfathered but I don't know of any. Basically all new boilers and furnaces have either a spark or hot surface ignition system. Sometimes this system will light a pilot which in term lights the gas burner. However when the system shut down the pilot goes out.

can i change this over to propane

Asked by Bill September 30, 2015

Answer

Yes it can. If you were to purchase this unit now. The appropriate conversion kit would be a Modine 28049. It can be ordered at any Home Depot and the cost is $50. Home Depot sells the next size down, the 150,000 BTU unit in propane. The online SKU is 205965414. Further if you need the 175,000 BTU unit and want it to come from the factory as Propane. Again any Home Depot can order that for you. It will take 2-4 weeks to be made and would be a model number PDP175AE0185SBAN. This would save you the cost of the kit and the effort to convert. If you have any questions you are welcome to give me a call. Chris 978 651 3301

I bought this heater to heat my 40' X 80'...
I bought this heater to heat my 40' X 80' pole barn. The building is insulated and has 10' side walls. Thus far the heater runs about 20% of the time to maintain a 60 degree temperature. I want to maintain a 60 degree temp to allow working on projects in the building without the need for heavy clothing to be worn and to prevent "working up a sweat" while working. The fan is relatively quiet and capable of circulating the air so that the shop is evenly heated.
