How to Convert British Thermal Units to Therms

To convert a measurement in british thermal units to a measurement in therms, divide the energy by the following conversion ratio: 100,000 british thermal units/therm.

Since one therm is equal to 100,000 british thermal units, you can use this simple formula to convert:

therms = british thermal units ÷ 100,000

The energy in therms is equal to the energy in british thermal units divided by 100,000.

For example, here's how to convert 50,000 british thermal units to therms using the formula above.
therms = (50,000 BTU ÷ 100,000) = 0.5 therms

British thermal units and therms are both units used to measure energy. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.
