    Gas Fire BTU 8th Aug 18 at 8:52 AM
    Anyone know the expected BTU output range of a gas fire?

    Room dimensions suggest BTU of 11,500
    Existing radiator BTU 5,500

    I have used three sites for the BTU. B&Q, traderadiators.com and bestheating.com and taken an average.

    For other rooms the results are diverse. 1889 to 3868 for a small bedroom.

    Gas fires will normally range from 2-7kw. Although you can get dfe fires 7kw+ but they would require permanent ventilation.

    1kw = 3400btus roughly.

    Thank you. So that seems sufficient to heat the room if turned on.
