View Full Version : Heat From CO2 Generator

03-22-2010, 05:11 PM
I read the other post about heat from CO2 generators and was wondering if perhaps there was a more specific answer. For example like the scale of approx 3.2BTU/watt on HID lights. In other words - if my CO2 generator is rated at 16,000 BTUs and its on 30 minutes an hour. Is all that BTU being converted to heat while the unit is on? Is any lost to the creation of CO2? And does this mean if I add a 16,000 BTU CO2 generator that's on 30 minutes per hour I will need to compensate with 8000 BTU/hr of cooling?

Thanks in advance.

You should read some about thermodynamics.

Your space is unique and there is no pat answer to your questions.
