    Believe it or not but it's hard to get someone to provide you with a J- manual load study, so I am asking the rule of thumb ? re: sq footage. I have 1400 sq ft on the 2nd level of my home. It has 4 room and bathroom how many BTU furnace would I need for that area

    You can calculate a Manual J yourself. Click on the bullseye at the top of this page and download the 30 day version.

    There is no such thing as a proper sq ft rule.
    If all else fails....Try reading the directions!

    Tell it like it is and let the chips fall where they may.

    Any views or opinions stated here are strictly my own.

    Yes. Buy the 30 day version. You can do 4600 sqft in 2 hours while towing a 16 month "helper" around. Or 30 minutes alone.

    Otherwise, call your power company and ask for conversation assistance. Out here they'll come and do it for you also. And for free.
