A combination of 10-15 people dancing in a room with 50kW and in an R-40 insulated hermetically-sealed room-in-room.
In the summer my roof can be 115 degrees, but inside it is room-temp, without any air conditioning on.
In the winter, I can heat my room with just a 6-inch heater or my amplifiers at full-tilt for 8 hours. (and that's well below freezing.)
I'd run my HTPC+ power conditioner 24/7/365, which is 200w idle, and that heated the room +30 degrees.
Which is handy in the winter but a pain in the summer.
I could only imagine 90 vacuum tubes (or whatever his is running there.)
Good thing he has like 16ft walls. Otherwise it would be death hot in there...
especially when bumping loud for a few hours with the projector on, and all that array of 150w disco lights...
I could totally see a power bill of $1200 a month if he left it on.
