Tring to find kg number on my furnace
 
I am replacing my split unit over to and contained unit . And the sales person is asking for a kg nuber for the heast strip and i can't find one. How do i find this number? All i know is that it would be a nuber between 10 and 20.

Do you mean "Self Contained" unit?

And do you KW instead of kg?

There may be stickers with numbers on the plate the elements attach to. If all else fails do a heat loss calculation to find out how much heat you need and post it here. We can figure out how to convert that to Kw for you. You can also get a electrician to run the elements and check the amps draw and convert that to Kw.Load Calculator

Is this salesman, an online salesman.

Before you order it. make sure what it will cost you(weather you do it, or an electrician) to have/run a new electric line to the site that you intend to set the package unit. Along with the cost of the new disconnect, the extra duct work, lintels/or slab. rain shield. Etc.
