BTUH/ (TD x 1,08 ) = CFM

if you question the airflow why not just measure it?

Run elec strips at same fan speed as comp runs -
amps x volts / TD x 3.16 = CFM

Can you clarify what you mean there?

Manual S is not a guess at anything, it's a procedure to select equipment and recommend airflow based on the SHR and BTUH loss provided by Manual J.
