Heat Pump Sizing
Hello- not sure if I'm posting in the right forum, but this definately isn't a "home" system.
A bit of background, I own a small gourmet mushroom cultivation buisness, we are expanding and are putting together the enviornemntal system for our cultivation rooms. These rooms need to have high humidities (85-95% RH), regulated temperatures (55, 65 and 75F) and high air exchange.
I am looking to purchase a heat pump and wanted to see if someone can tell me if I have calculated the BTU demand correctly.
I found the following equation online:
CFM * 1.08 * temperature change = btu/hr
I need to move 1000cfm, and I think that the max temperature change will be 35F. So I found that I need 37800 BTU/hr or 3+ ton system.
Is this a reasonable estimate?
Thanks in advance
