When an air conditioning engineer is asked to calculate the load for a room such as this, he must know how many people will occupy the room. He must know this because each one of us here is liberating about 400 BTU per hour of heat energy. That is, when we are at rest. If we dance or do some similar exercise, our heat rate goes up to as much as 700 BTU per hour.
