## Heat Strip Size Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Heat Strip Size.

HSS = V * A / 1000* 3413

Variables:

- HSS is the Heat Strip Size (BTU)
- V is the system voltage (volts)
- A is the system power (amps)

To calculate the heat strip size, multiply the voltage by the power, divide by 1000, then multiply by 3413 to convert into BTUs.

## How to Calculate Heat Strip Size?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Heat Strip Size.

- First, determine the system voltage (volts).
- Next, determine the system power (amps).
- Next, gather the formula from above = HSS = V * A / 100 0* 3413.
- Finally, calculate the Heat Strip Size.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

system voltage (volts) = 10

system power (amps) = 40

HSS = V * A / 100 0* 3413** **= ?
