    Ummm......you don't know the watt to btu conversion?


    Your HVAC contractor should know that one pretty easily.

    What did your contractors offer? And what was the reasoning behind their choices.



    Sorry it kinda sounded DIY'er to me which is against the rules.

    One tech said 5kw and the other said 7.5kw for a faster recovery. I don't know anything about it really. DIY is out of the question because I don't really know enough about this stuff to try and tackle it myself..If I did I would not be asking the questiom, but thanks for flattering me. Antone else want to try and help?
