The one amp per pound assumes 240V,and is definitely a small melter (probably up to 40-50 lbs.)only sort of concept.

Any of these amps per pound or watts per cubic foot sort of approaches might be tempered by the thought that you may want to be able to gain heat quickly at some point. You don't have to use all that capacity all the time but it's sure nice to have it there when you need it.
You will also have different results depending on how much/what sort of insulation and furnace mass.
