I am doing some light reading in the 2018 IECC https://codes.iccsafe.org/content/IECC2018P3/chapter-4-re-residential-energy-efficiency

Does anyone know what this part of Table 405.5.2(1) means?

I keep coming up with millions of Btu/day for a 1,000 square foot home. That can't be right...

Just think of a formula with no parenthesis like:

π r^2

You would square the radius before multiplying π.
