The heat-loss factors of your basement play a large part in how much BB heating you might need.

Starting with the geographical location of your house, how much residual heat you already have, amount of insulation, quality of windows, etc.

Some folks use 10 watts per square foot as a general rule of thumb for heating calculations, but with basement areas, that may be overkill.

I'd opt for a "Manual J" calculation to see if 4500 watts is enough. :yes:
