If you use electric heating *(electric furnaces, electric water heaters)*, you will naturally want to convert kWh to therms. We will show you exactly how to do it. On top of that, you have an easy-to-use **kWh To Therms Calculator** further on

*(just insert kWh, get therms)*. To top it off, we have converted

*1 to 10,000 kWh*into therms and summarized the results in the chart below.

Converting electrical energy (kWh) into heating output (therms) starts by understanding both of these units:

**kWh**stands for. This is a unit of electric energy equal to 1,000-watt unit running for 1 hour (1 kW, 1 hour = 1 kWh).**k**ilo**W**att-**h**our**Therm**is a unit for heating capacity (or heat content). 1 therm is equal to**100,000 BTU**. BTU, as we know, stands for British Thermal Unit. If we were to heat up 1 pound of water by 1 degree Fahrenheit, we would need to use 1 BTU.

Electricity is usually converted into heat with 100% efficiency (all kWh are used to produce therms). We know that 1 kWh is equal to 3,412 BTU. Now, therm = 100,000 BTU. That means that we can write the kWh to therms conversion formula like this:

**Therms = kWh Ã— 0.03412956**

*Example:* Let’s say we want to figure out how many therms is 1 kWh. We just input 1 kWh into this equation like this:

**Therms (1 kWh) **= 1 Ã— 0.03412956 = **0.03412956 Therms**

As we can see, 1 kWh is equal to about 0.034 therms. Inversely, we need to use 29.30 kWh of electricity to get 1 therm of heating output.

Multiplying kWh by 0.03412956 to get therms can be quite a bother. That’s why we have created the following kWh To Therms Calculator that does this calculation automatically. Below the calculator, you will also find a kWh to therms conversion chart you can freely use:

## kWh To Therms Calculator

Here is how this calculator works:

Let’s say you have spent 147 kWh of electricity on heating. How many therms did these 147 kWh generate? Just slide the slider to ‘147’ and you get the result: 147 kWh is equal to **5.02 therms**.

For full results, let’s have a look at the conversion chart:

### kWh To Therms Chart

Therms: |

1 kWh | 0.0341 Therms |

5 kWh | 0.171 Therms |

10 kWh | 0.34 Therms |

20 kWh | 0.68 Therms |

30 kWh | 1.02 Therms |

40 kWh | 1.37 Therms |

50 kWh | 1.71 Therms |

60 kWh | 2.05 Therms |

70 kWh | 2.39 Therms |

80 kWh | 2.73 Therms |

90 kWh | 3.07 Therms |

100 kWh | 3.41 Therms |

150 kWh | 5.12 Therms |

200 kWh | 6.83 Therms |

250 kWh | 8.53 Therms |

300 kWh | 10.24 Therms |

350 kWh | 11.95 Therms |

400 kWh | 13.65 Therms |

450 kWh | 15.36 Therms |

500 kWh | 17.06 Therms |

600 kWh | 20.48 Therms |

700 kWh | 23.89 Therms |

800 kWh | 27.30 Therms |

900 kWh | 30.72 Therms |

1,000 kWh | 34.13 Therms |

2,000 kWh | 68.26 Therms |

5,000 kWh | 170.65 Therms |

10,000 kWh | 341.30 Therms |

Now you can easily read the kWh to therms conversion from this chart.

*Example:* How many therms is 300 kWh? Just check the chart, and you can see the result: 300 kWh is equal to **10.24 therms**.

With the kilowatt-hour to therms calculator and chart, you can now easily figure out how many therms do you generate with a given kWh electricity usage. If you need any help, you can use the comment section below, give us some numbers, and we will help you out.
