Question Questions on Load Calculations

Thanks for the reply Greg. That gives me the answer. I'll edit out the post. The moderators can delete if they want to.

Depending on the sizing formula, some will use a square footage of the entire structure in the calculation which would cover the rooms you mention.

If the fireplace chimney is capped off then there will be minimal heat loss from air rising up the chimney. If on an outside wall though there would be heat loss through the chimney wall.

Ask your contractor to go over his calculations with you if you are doubting it's accuracy.
