If your home has standard ceiling heights of 8' and your square footage is correctly measured then you are looking at a volume of 9,648 cubic feet. Depending on the layout of your home however it will probably be more beneficial to use 3 foggers for adequate coverage. Since the hvac will be turned off limiting air circulation, some areas will not be adequately covered possibly while only using two foggers.
How is the home laid out? Is it a single floor? Have there been additions made to the home? Is there a basement?

For cockroaches, you need to use more foggers than you would if you were killing flies, gnats or fleas. That's because the foggers need to be able to penetrate into cracks and crevices. The standard rule on this is 1 fogger every room, or at the minimum, 1 fogger every 500 square feet. For 1206 square feet, I would recommend 2 foggers. Place them closest to the kitchen, bath or wherever the roaches are found.
Gas pilot lights must be turned off prior to setting off total release foggers. The mist in the air from the foggers can become explosive. This goes for any mist, not just foggers. If you can't turn off the pilot light easily, then consider not using foggers and going with bait gel such as Maxforce FC Roach Killer Bait.
