How to Convert British Thermal Units to Therms

To convert a british thermal unit measurement to a therm measurement, divide the energy by the conversion ratio. One therm is equal to 100,000 british thermal units, so use this simple formula to convert:

therms = british thermal units ÷ 100,000

The energy in therms is equal to the 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.
50,000 BTU = (50,000 ÷ 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.

British Thermal Units

British thermal units are a measure of heat energy. Specifically, one british thermal unit is equal to the amount of heat energy required to increase the temperature of one pound of water one degree Fahrenheit. They are often used as a way to rate the energy heat producing appliances such furnaces, and to price heating fuels such as natural gas.

The british thermal unit is a US customary unit of energy. British thermal units can be abbreviated as BTU, for example 1 british thermal unit can be written as 1 BTU.

Therms

One therm is a measure of heat energy equal to 100,000 BTU, which are equal to the amount of heat energy required to increase the temperature of one pound of water one degree Fahrenheit. Therms are often used by natural gas companies to measure the heat equivalent of gas used.

The therm is a US customary unit of energy.
