Pole Barn Heat
I live in Ohio and have at 36x48x12 Pole Barn with a 5 pitch roof. The barn is completely unfinished and has metal walls and roof. I would like to figure out a way to quickly heat the barn if I need to do some stuff in the winter. I was thinking of using a Kerosine or Propane Salmander heater at 120,000 btu.
1. What is the proper way to size the btu rating for the 36x48x12 5 pitch barn? Would 120,000 btu be sufficient?
2. Is propane or kerosine cheaper to run?
3. Would radiant heat be better than the forced air heat? Any better options to quickly heat the barn?
4. Would there be any condensation issues? The barn has a ridge vent down the middle and fullly vented 1 ft. soffits on each side. It also has a concrete floor.
