Heat energy produced by animals.
Heat emission from animals in a state of relaxtion can be estimated with the equation
H = 6.6 m0.75 (1)
H = heat emission (Btu per Hr)
m = mass or weight (pounds)
- 1 lb = 0.4536 kg
- 1 Btu/h = 0.293 W
For animals in moderate activity - use a multiplying factor of 2.
Animals Heat Emission Chart
Heat emissions from animals in relaxed state - imperial and metric units - are indicated in the charts below:
- Air Conditioning systems - heating, cooling and dehumidification of indoor air for thermal comfort.
- Temperature and humidity environments for laboratory animals.
- Gaseous polutants emissions from human bodies.
