ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the effect of warm air that can be produced by party guests on fuel bills according to Roger A. Weiler, president of an electric heating equipment company. It argues that each guest can give off an average of 350 British thermal units of heat an hour, which would amount to 35,000 British thermal units if there are 100 guests.
