I am planning a 600 squaire foot mother in-law addition to a 3200 sq foot house buit in 1994. The new addition will be on the ground floor behind the existing garage and will contain one large 18 x 18 room, a bathroom, and a laundry room. The exisitng house is energy efficent and heated with a 115,000 BTU gas forced air furnace with the furnace located in the garage. I would like to zone heat the new space so I can lower the temperature when it is not used for long periods of time. I do not want to use a free standing or direct vent system since there is a question of dementia. I am not a fan of baseboard electric heat. A speparate furnace located in the garage for the mother in-law addition would seem ideal, however I am not aware of any gas furnaces that have small enough BTU ratings for such a small space. Zoning a 3200 sq foot house with a 600 sq foot mother in law space creates system balance problems. Any suggestions?
