How to Convert British Thermal Units to Therms

To convert a british thermal unit measurement to a therm measurement, multiply the energy by the conversion ratio. One british thermal unit is equal to 1.0E-5 therms, so use this simple formula to convert:

therms = british thermal units × 1.0E-5

The energy in therms is equal to the british thermal units multiplied by 1.0E-5.

For example, here's how to convert 5 british thermal units to therms using the formula above.
5 BTU = (5 × 1.0E-5) = 5.0E-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.
