Power consumption to heat an area
 
Wich would be the power consumption to heat an area of 162000 sf in kW? A warehouse

I came up with this amount of kWatts, could it be possible 1,424 kW/hrX 8 hours 11,392 kwattas a day,:huh: aren't too many kWs?

And I would aslo need to know how many months of the year the heating has to be used if the warehouse is located in tennese and how many if the warehouse is located in Ohio

With all due respect...how the bleep should we know?

You need to be in contact a few HVAC contrators to size this for you.
Anything else will just be guessing.
No one here can see your building, you did not even add your location to your profile, no one know how well insulated, what type of windows, exposure to the sun Ect.

Wow...we need so much more info.

What's the height of the roof? Going to cost a lot more to heat a given area if it's 25ft high vs. 15ft high.

Are the walls or roof insulated? Windows? Large openings/garages/bay doors? What kind of heaters, how many, where are they placed...

As Joe said, contact HVAC tech for a legit answer.

The only thing I will say it will be cheaper to run the heating equiment on gaz instead of electrique heating system.

Merci,
