I know a bit about aircons.

Why does a gogo bar need more aircon than a restaurant?

every person in an establishment needs an extra 500btu of aircon to compensate for the heat they generate, gogo bars always have more people in than restaurants.

come to think of it Mr D and Blimey

how about a topic on Gogo and beer bar construction

There are enough silly flangs coming to pattaya every week to do just that

Now Mr B the AC man a couple of queries

a) whats that strange stinky smell that comes out of ac units in gogo bars at the start of an evening - bit like chilled drains

b) the average adult radiates 300W of heat whilst seated) which is 3.412*0.3 BTu's/h = 1000 approx ( i always remember that become the conversion factor is 3412 vs 3.142 the Sqr root of 2 - neat

so whats the factor for a wriggling LBFM who is half the weight of a fat flang? Perhaps some field testing is required?
