    IF appliance data plate/installation manual says HEAT INPUT - "35 KW" then what should we consider kw as a GROSS or NET? I got two different answer . My college instructor says GROSS and my mentor says NET.

    Check manufacturers instructions, more info in there than data plate, they're all online if there's not a hard copy on site.

    Agree with shaun. But if you want to have net just devide the gross kw by 1.11 and you will have net.
