## How much electricity does a 10kw heat strip use?

“10kw” heat strips can be as much as

**9.6 kilowatts**. Fixed electric space heating equipment is considered a continuous load, so you have no other loads considered.## How big of heat strips do I need?

Here’s the formula:

**Volts x Amps / 1000 = Heat Strip Kw**. Measure actual voltage and actual amperage at the heat strips, and then apply the formula. Next, multiply the measured Kw by 3413 to get true heat strip BTU.## What size furnace do I need for a 1000 sq ft house?

A basic rule of thumb is that it takes 30 BTUs for every 1,000 square feet. At the most basic level, if you have a 1,000 square foot house, you’ll look for a furnace that has

**30,000 BTU output**.## How many amps should a 10kw heat strip pull?

50 Amp

10kW = 10000W. 208V/230V. Heating Capacity: 30,001 BTU/H – 35,000 BTU/H. Max Fuse Breaker:

## How many amps does a 10kw heater draw?

Amps = power / volts. So 10000 / 220V =

**45.45 amps**.## How many kW Do I need to heat my house?

The first and the easiest method to calculate your home’s heating capacity is laid down in the ‘building code’ basics:

**one kilowatt of heat will be required for heating every 10 square metres of your home**. Hence, for heating a 100 square meters home, one will need to look for a 10 kWh boiler type.## What size breaker do I need for a 10000 watt heater?

50 Amp breaker

10,000 Watts divided by 240 Volts equals 41.6 Amps. This unit requires a

**50 Amp**breaker.## How many Btus is a 5kw heat strip?

## What wire do I use for 40 amps?

The size wire you need to operate with a 40-amp breaker safely is an

**8-AWG wire**. It is possible to install a 40-amp circuit breaker on a larger gauge wire such as a 6-AWG wire, but installing it on a smaller gauge wire will violate the code.## What size breaker should be used for 10kw electric heat at 240V?

**240volts X 42amps**= 10kw so you should be good to go. If your wire is labeled 55amps,55 is the max it should be for but #4 al is normally 65 amp.

## How many watts can 20 amp breaker handle?

2,400 watts

20-amp 120-volt circuit: 20 amps x 120-volts =

**2,400 watts**.## Is a double 20 amp breaker 40 amps?

The breakers themselves are relatively narrow and occupy a single slot in the home’s breaker box. Double-pole breakers, on the other hand, are

**typically rated for 20 to 60 amps**and supply 240-volt power to large appliances, like electric dryers and ranges.## What size breaker do I need for a 15000 watt heater?

A 15,000 W heater @ 240V = 62.5 A continuous. Which means it actually needs 78.125 A rating ==>

**80 A**breaker. That is a lot of power. But more important than it needing that much power, they should be telling you to use an 80A breaker.## What size wire is needed for 60 amps?

6 AWG to 4 AWG

For 60 ampere breakers, electricians and professionals suggest using a wire size gauge ranging from

**6 AWG to 4 AWG**. All household wires have a rating of at least 600V, so only amperage really matters when it comes to determining wire gauge.## What size wire should I use for a 50 amp breaker?

According to the American Wire Gauge system, the appropriate wire gauge to use in conjunction with a 50-amp breaker is a

**6-gauge wire**. The 6-gauge copper conductor wire is rated up to 55 amps, making it the perfect choice for this circuit.## How many heaters can you run on a 30 amp breaker?

The number of heaters you can attach to one thermostat also depends on your circuit and wiring

Volts | Size of breaker | Maximum watts on circuit |
---|---|---|

240 | 20 Amp Double Pole | 3840 |

240 | 30 Amp Double Pole | 5760 |

## How many heaters can you run on a 20 amp circuit?

A 20-amp breaker can support any combination of heaters

**up to a total of 3,840 watts**. For example, using a single thermostat, the breaker could support two 1500-watt heaters or three 1000-watt heaters.## How many watts can you run on a 15 amp circuit?

Most homes in the United States have outlet voltages around 120V. So on a 15 amp circuit, the maximum watts are 15A*120V =

**1800 watts**.## How many 240V baseboard heaters can I put on one circuit?

If we have a 240V circuit, we can connect

**up to three 1,500 W baseboard heaters**.
