# Calculating the number of radiator sections

In preparation for the repair work and in the process of planning the construction of a new house it is necessary to calculate the number of radiator sections. The results of these calculations make it possible to know the number of the batteries, which would be enough to provide an apartment or house is warm enough even in the cold weather.

Calculating the number of radiator sections

Calculation procedure may vary depending on a variety of factors. See instructions for rapid calculation for typical situations for the calculation of non-standard rooms, as well as the execution order of the most detailed and accurate calculations taking into account all possible relevant characteristics of your room.

## Recommendations for the calculation prior to the

To independently calculate the required number of sections of the heating battery, you must know the following parameters:

- size of the room, for which the calculation;
How to make a measurement of premises

- capacity of the entire battery or else each of its sections. This information is provided in the technical documentation supplied by the manufacturer of the heating unit.

Indicators of heat, the battery shape and material of its manufacture - the figures in the calculations do not take into account.

Important! Do not perform the calculation once for the entire home or apartment. Spend a little more time and perform calculations for each room separately. The only way to get the most reliable information. In the process of calculating the amount of the battery section for heating the corner of the room to the final result you need to add 20%. The same margin is necessary throw from the top, if the heating shortages appear or else its effectiveness is not enough for high-quality warm.

## Standard calculation of radiators

Calculation of radiators

We will begin training with consideration of the most often used method of calculation. It can hardly be considered the most accurate, but the simplicity of execution it definitely is forging ahead.

Standard calculation of radiators

Accordingly, the "universal" method for heating room space 1 m2 100 W need battery power. In this case, the calculation limited to one simple formula:

**K = S / U * 100**

In this formula:

- K - the required number of battery sections to heat the premises under consideration;
- S - area of the premises;
- U - the power of one section of the radiator.
The formula for calculating the number of radiator sections

For example, consider the procedure for calculating the necessary number of battery sections for the room dimensions 4h3,5 m. The area of the room is 14 m2. The manufacturer states that each section is released it outputs battery 160 W power.

Substitute the values in the above formula, and we find that our room heating radiator sections need to 8.75. Rounded, of course, in a big way, ie to 9. If the corners of the room, add a 20% margin, rounded back, and get the 11 sections. If the heating system there are problems, we add another 20% to the original value calculated. Get about 2. That is, in the amount of heating a 14-meter corner room in an unstable operation of the heating system will need 13 sections of the battery.

## Approximate number of standard rooms

A very simple version of the calculation. He is based on the fact that the size of the heating battery mass production is virtually identical. If the room height is 250 cm (standard value for the majority of residential premises), the one section of the radiator can heat a 1.8 m2 of space.

Room area is 14 m2. To calculate the value sufficient to divide the feet of the previously mentioned 1.8 m2. The result is 7.8. Rounded to 8.

Thus to heat the room 14-meter with a 2.5-meter ceiling need to buy a battery into 8 sections.

Important! Do not use this method in the calculation unit of low power (60 W). The error is too big.

Selection of radiators for thermal capacity

## The calculation for non-standard rooms

This option is suitable for the calculation of non-standard rooms with too low or too high the ceilings. The calculation basis statement, according to which 1 m3 for warming the living space of order 41 watts need battery power. That is, calculations are performed by a single formula having the form:

**A = Bx41, **

Where:

- A - the desired number of heating sections of the battery;
- B - the volume of the room. It is calculated by multiplying the length of the room by its width and height.

For example, consider the room length of 4 m, a width of 3.5 m and a height of 3 m. It will amount to 42 m 3.

Total need of space thermal energy calculated by multiplying its volume on the previously mentioned 41 watts. Result - 1722 watts. For example, take the battery every section which outputs a 160 W thermal capacity. The required number of sections calculated by dividing the total demand for heat output to the power value of each section. Get 10.8. As usual, rounded up to the nearest integer, i.e., 11.

Important! If you bought the battery is not divided into sections, divide the total heat demand in the power of an entire battery (indicated in the accompanying technical documentation). So you will know the right amount of radiators.

The calculated data is recommended to be rounded up for the reason that manufacturing companies often indicate power, slightly greater than the actual value in the technical documentation.
