    The Heat loss calculator from HHIC used to be good until they doubled the price over night. I asked them about this and they could not even be bothered to reply so Customer service is not that good.

    Mr combi app
    You can select the level of insulation and window area. It's a few quid, but good.

    Stars App | Heat loss calculator for any room

    Heat Loss Manager by MYSON

    I have always used Stelrad Stars or the Myson one always found them good at least must better than LxWxHx ?? plus a bit for windows / loft above etc.

    and in Watts but think you can change it to btu's for all the old heathens out there.

    I have yet to trust an app for these calcs , in my experience they are way over sized , however I may just try the wrong ones .
    Its the long way but I always feel its the best way, I do them long hand on a piece of paper just like we were shown at plumbing school .
