AbstractThe introduction of electrical heating equipment, which has no casing losses, has made it necessary to have reasonably reliable methods of calculating heat losses from the basement so that the correct size of unit can be selected. With all methods of heating, considerations of economy dictate that heat losses be calculated and insulation provided where necessary.
