    You've got to find a heatloss program that lets you enter a 140 degree room temperature.  My Slat-Fin Heatloss Explorer only lets me go up to 90 degrees.

    Give us the room information.  Maybe someone has a program that will work or we can do it long hand.  We'd need: room height, length, width, square feet of windows, single or double pane, how many exposed walls, R-value of wall insulation, square feet of exposed walls, ceiling insulation, is there a roof above or another room, floor construction (slab, raised floor, room below, etc.), insulation in floor.
    8.33 lbs./gal. x 60 min./hr. x 20°ΔT = 10,000 BTU's/hour

    Two btu per sq ft for degree difference for a slab
