Does anyone know how long a 20 lb. co2 tank will last in a 300 cu. ft. room only venting when temp and humidity require (they are typically pretty well in check)? co2 is only on during lights on kept at 1500 ppm

My co2 tank lasts about 5 days in a 4x4x7 room with a 6" vortex running non stop. I have my timer set for 30seconds on every minute for 12 hours. The ppm ranges from 1100-1400.
