Heat Output of Office Equipment

By ric ·
My manager has asked me to research Heat output of major items of office equipment, ie Monitors, Printers. This is a new one for me and any advice you can give would be great, I made the first step of contacting Mitsubishi and told me that my monitor had a heat output of 140W ... Is this not the power used? Very grateful if you could clear this up for me ...

Heat output is measured in BTUs (British Thernmal Units). The manufacturer of the equipment should be able to give you this information. There is no direct conversion from Watts to BTU, as different items can use the same number of Watts to generatedifferent amounts of heat. If you look at the detailed specs on each piece of equipment you have, one of the items specified is heat dissipation in BTU. If you do not have the detailed specifiations, contact the manufacturer and tell them you need the BTU dissipation.
