How to Convert Kilojoules to Therms

To convert a kilojoule measurement to a therm measurement, multiply the energy by the conversion ratio.

Since one kilojoule is equal to 9.4782E-6 therms, you can use this simple formula to convert:

therms = kilojoules × 9.4782E-6

The energy in therms is equal to the kilojoules multiplied by 9.4782E-6.

For example, here's how to convert 500,000 kilojoules to therms using the formula above.
500,000 kJ = (500,000 × 9.4782E-6) = 4.739086 therms

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


One kilojoule is equal to 1,000 joules, which are the energy equal to the force on an object of one newton at a distance of one meter.

The kilojoule is a multiple of the joule, which is the SI derived unit for energy. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for 103. Kilojoules can be abbreviated as kJ; for example, 1 kilojoule can be written as 1 kJ.


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.
