Quite often, when a cooperative member plans on installing electric heat or a ground source heat pump, we are requested to do a heat loss calculation for the home. A heat loss calculation is figuring out the total amount of BTUs it will take to properly heat or cool a home. Once you know the actual BTUs necessary, your contractor can accurately place the correct sized heating system in your home.
McCone Electric has a person on staff that will professionally do a heat loss calculation for you if you are installing electric heat in your home. The service is free of charge for our members. Just call our member services department to make the request.
