How to Convert Btu Per Hour to Kilowatts

To convert a btu per hour measurement to a kilowatt measurement, multiply the power by the conversion ratio. One btu per hour is equal to 0.000293 kilowatts, so use this simple formula to convert:

kilowatts = btu per hour × 0.000293

The power in kilowatts is equal to the btu per hour multiplied by 0.000293.

For example, here's how to convert 5 btu per hour to kilowatts using the formula above.
5 Btu/h = (5 × 0.000293) = 0.001465 kW

Btu per hour and kilowatts are both units used to measure power. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

Btu Per Hour

One BTU per hour is equal to one british thermal unit, or the energy needed to heat one pound of water 1 °F, for one hour.

The btu per hour is a US customary unit of power. Btu per hour can be abbreviated as Btu/h, for example 1 btu per hour can be written as 1 Btu/h.

Kilowatts

One kilowatt is the power equal to 1,000 watts, or the energy consumption at a rate of 1,000 joules per second.

The kilowatt is a multiple of the watt, which is the SI derived unit for power. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for 103. Kilowatts can be abbreviated as kW, for example 1 kilowatt can be written as 1 kW.
