Enter a value in quads below to convert to another unit of energy.

## Results:

A quad is a unit used to measure energy.

The quad is a US customary unit of energy.

## How Much Is a Quad?

One therm is a measure of heat energy equal to one quadrillion (1,000,000,000,000,000) BTU, which are equal to the amount of heat energy required to increase the temperature of one pound of water one degree Fahrenheit. Quads are usually used when talking about energy resources and consumption on a national or international scale.

To convert quads to another unit of energy, you need to multiply the value by a conversion factor. A conversion factor is a numerical value used to change the units of a measurement without changing the value.[1]

You can find the conversion factors for quads in the conversion table below.

Then, multiply the energy measurement by the conversion factor to find the equivalent value in the desired unit of measurement.

quads × conversion factor = result

You can also use a calculator, such as one of the converters below, for the conversion.
