How to Convert Therms to Watt-Seconds
To convert a measurement in therms to a measurement in watt-seconds, multiply the energy by the following conversion ratio: 105,505,585.262 watt-seconds/therm.
Since one therm is equal to 105,505,585.262 watt-seconds, you can use this simple formula to convert:
watt-seconds = therms × 105,505,585.262
The energy in watt-seconds is equal to the energy in therms multiplied by 105,505,585.262.
How Many Watt-Seconds Are in a Therm?
There are 105,505,585.262 watt-seconds in a therm, which is why we use this value in the formula above.
1 therms = 105,505,585.262 Ws
Therms and watt-seconds are both units used to measure energy. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.
What Is a Therm?
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.

What Is a Watt-Second?
Watt-seconds are usually abbreviated as Ws, although the formally adopted expression is W·s. The abbreviation W s is also sometimes used. For example, 1 watt-second can be written as 1 Ws, 1 W·s, or 1 W s.
In formal expressions, the centered dot (·) or space is used to separate units used to indicate multiplication in an expression and to avoid conflicting prefixes being misinterpreted as a unit symbol.
