Default Isolation transformer. Problems?

I have little understanding except that I was told that isolation transformer is the best AC conditioner for my studio.
I have aquired one that is 500VA.
When it is plugged in, they is quite a humming and it gets hot. Is that normal? Is 500 VA too much for me?
Can I test it with dim bulb test?

I suggest you buy a Kill-A-Watt meter and see whats going on. 500VA gets used up pretty quickly.
