    CIBSE guide gives between 90W and 140W depending on how energetic the people are. Someone sitting at a desk Tweeting or on Facebook will be nearer 90W and someone doing manual labour will be nearer 140W

    When the ambient is higher then your temp. the body absorbs heat,[will never accrue in the UK]

    As Frank says, it varies.
    The figures he quotes are generally OK but just be aware that not everybody falls within the norm.

    My wife for example - 0W...
    Young ladies in a gym - anything up to 1kW depending on how many men are watching.
