I'm just calculating the BTU's for some radiator replacement but noticing massive differences between different formulas.

I first used one from the heatandplumb website which seems a very reputable site but noticed their calculations come in some what lower than others?!?!

I obviously don't want an inadequate rad but don't want something stupidly big either.

Your thoughts appreciated.

if its a tad big you can turn it down

if its to small you are donald ducked :idea:

Indeed but if I can avoid going too big, I'd like to. Just wonder why the formulas are giving such different results.

For a 4 x 3 m room, I getting 1000 BTU's difference?!?!
