ENERJOY I Design & Sizing

Use the chart below to size your rooms.  Or, call us at 800 544 5182 or email info@sshcinc.com with your floor plans; we will be happy to advise you on panel specifications.  For whole house heating, we provide complimentary system sizings and layouts with the floor plans of your structure.

Design Guidelines

1)    Determine panel size by selecting a balanced combination of ENERJOY Peopleheaters to cover 10% of the ceiling surface.

2)    Design symmetrical Heatmodule placement in the same way you locate lights to illuminate a room, recognizing areas of high heat loss and special comfort areas.

3)    Take full advantage of the broad dispersion of radiant energy emanating at a 80° angle from the Heatmodule surface. It is all right to oversize[1] by using identical heatmodules to attain symmetry even though the sizing chart calls for unequal or smaller units.

Rules of Thumb:

1) Select a geometrically pleasing design, while allowing a 2' to 4' set off [2] from exterior walls and figuring approximately two times the setoff distance between Heatmodules.

2) Use the following general specifications to determine watts per square foot (W/SF) of room area: Bath areas: 7 W/SF; Living room or corner offices: 6 W/SF; Dens, offices, dining rooms or corner bedrooms: 5W/SF; Kitchens or middle bedrooms: 4 W/SF.  Above 7,000 degree days add 1 W/SF.

[1]The sizing increase or decrease determines cycle frequency- how quickly the thermostat setpoint is satisfied.

[2]There is no set off restriction.   Unnecessary heat loss is minimized

Wiring note: Existing 20 amp 120 volt lighting circuits may serve ENERJOY I Heatmodules.

Insulation note:  Insulate floor above basement or crawlspace.

Additional Guidelines:

Supplemental heating:  basements and super-insulated houses- Use 1-24RP for each 100 sq. ft. of space--approx. 3-4 W/SF.

Cathedral ceilings or 10' ceilings:
For 12' peak (avg. 10') increase heat panel area by 25%.  Ex.- Use 28RP instead of 26RP.
For 16' peak (avg. 12') increase heat panel size by 50%. 

Split Levelbuildings- Add one watt per square foot.

Fireplaces, sliders or skylights- Add one watt per square foot.

Typical ENERJOY® Sizing Examples

MODEL ENERGY CODE SPECIFICATIONS:
Operative Temperature 70°F

BUILDING SPECS: Room Dimensions:15 x 15 x 8; Wall: R-19; Floor: R-19; Ceiling: R-38; Glass: R-2 (graphs assume window size of 3’x4’ & Sliding glass doors of 6’x6’8”); Air changes per hour: 0.25.
CHART USAGE: 1) Compute window percentage of outside wall; 2) Find intersection with Design Temperature; 3) Select ENERJOYHeatmodule(s) to meet wattage.
PLACEMENT: Parallel to and centered with 2’ offset from outside wall; second panel, if required, will be aligned with the first and separated approximately 4’ to 6’, or the distance necessary to achieve geometric layout balance
