A BTU is about 1055 joules. A kilowatt is 1000 joules/second, so it is 3,600,000 joules/hour. Dividing that by 1055 joules gives you the equivalent of about 3400 BTU/hour.

An MMBtu is a million Btu. 1 kilowatt hour = 3412 Btu, approx = 0.003 412 MM Btu. Originally, MBtu represented 1000 Btu, from the Roman numeral M = 1000. However, this often got confused with the SI prefix "Mega", meaning 1 million. The prefix MM was introduced to get around this confusion.

The therm (symbol thm) is a non-SI unit of heat energy equal to 100,000 British thermal units (BTU).The therm is equal to about 105.5 megajoules, 25,200 kilocalories or 29.3 kilowatt-hours.

A 10,000 BTU heater will use about 1/2 pound of propane per hour. Conversions to different types of energy being used (ie steam, KwH, etc.) will vary the answer, as will variations such as leaks, 02, temperature setting, efficiency, etc.

Many factors figure in other than square footage. Such as the height of the ceiling and number of windows. But, for most houses, 20 to 22 btu per square foot will do. 40,000 to 45,000 btu should do.

A BTU is about 1055 joules. A kilowatt is 1000 joules/second, so it is 3,600,000 joules/hour. Dividing that by 1055 joules gives you the equivalent of about 3400 BTU/hour.

BTU and kilowatt-hours are measures of energy, while power is measured in either kilowatts or BTU per hour. 1 kilowatt-hour is equal to 3412 BTU, or 1 kilowatt equals 3412 BTU/hr. 8000 BTU per hour is equal to 2.344 kilowatts, which is 19.53 amps at 120 v.

1 kW.hr. = 3412.14 Btu. so 14 kW.hr. = 47,770 Btu.

BTUs and kilowatts measure different types of quantities. A BTU (British Thermal Unit) measures heat (energy), while a kilowatt (1000 watts) measures power (energy per unit time). 1 BTU equals 0.0002928 kilowatt-hour 1 BTU/minute equals 0.01757 kilowatt. To convert a watt to BTUs, the factor is 1 kilowatt of power = 3412.1416 BTU/hr 3.412 BTUs equal a watt-hour. 1 kW = 3412.1416 BTU/hour with appropriate significant figures 3*103 BUT per hour

BTU is a measure of energy, while a kilowatt is a measure of power. Energy is power times time. Energy: measured in BTU or kilowatt-hours Power: measured in BTU/hour or kilowatts. 100,000 BTU equals about 29 kWh so a 1 kW heater produces about 3400 BTU per hour.

there is 3412 btu's to 1 kilowatt

3,412 BTU = 1 kilowatt-hour (rounded)

3.8 x 10(9) BTU

This depends on the cost per kilowatt hour in your area.
