The purpose of this guide is for heating engineers and homeowners to be able to correctly size which boiler heat output is required.
You will need to set aside 30-60 minutes of your time to complete the measurements and calculations required.

How to use the worksheet:
Complete sections 1-7 by filling in the blank areas. Follow the instructions carefully.
If the property you are measuring is an irregular shape, you will need to divide into sections and complete separate worksheets for each section.
Important: Where the calculations ask for a table value/factor, use the table on page 4 and choose the relevant value/factors.
Replacement boilers are often sized incorrectly. The aim of this guide is to reduce the unnecessary emissions from oversized boilers and the loss of efficiency caused by boilers cycling.
Not only are oversized boilers more expensive to buy in the first instance, they are also more expensive to maintain and have higher running costs.
