Estimating Heating Load
With this data, I can calculate burner run time X the BTU output consumption per hour / efficiency of the burner, and subtract this from the total gas consumption at the meter to arrive at an estimate of the furnace consumption. Not ideal, not very granular given the meter is monthly but it might work when viewed over the scale of a year
Once I get furnace BTU generation data I’d then have to apply that to heating degree days, etc… I plan to engage an HVAC engineer to help at that stage… my software eng skills only go so far 😛
Does anyone have any experience in this? Other ideas or suggestions?
Or am I over-thinking the risk of doing the heat-pump conversion ahead of; adding exterior continuous insulation, windows/doors, improved attic air/sealing and insulation, basement insulation.
