#### kWh to BTU

A kilowatt-hour is a measure of electrical energy equal to one kilowatt, or 1,000 watts, of power over a one hour period. Kilowatt-hours are a measure of electrical work performed over a period of time, and are often used as a way of measuring energy usage by electric companies.

Kilowatt-hours are usually abbreviated as kWh, although the formally adopted expression is kW·h. The abbreviation kW h is also sometimes used. For example, 1 kilowatt-hour can be written as 1 kWh, 1 kW·h, or 1 kW h.

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.

British thermal units are a measure of heat energy. Specifically, one british thermal unit is equal to the amount of heat energy required to increase the temperature of one pound of water one degree Fahrenheit. They are often used as a way to rate the energy heat producing appliances such furnaces, and to price heating fuels such as natural gas.

The british thermal unit is a US customary unit of energy. British thermal units can be abbreviated as BTU; for example, 1 british thermal unit can be written as 1 BTU.

#### How to convert kWh to BTU

1 kWh = 3412.14163312794 BTU_{IT}

So the energy in BTUs E_{(BTU)} is equal to 3412.1416.. times the energy in kilowatt-hour E_{(kWh)}:

E_{(BTU)} = 3412.14163312794 × E_{(kWh)}

#### Example

Convert 5 kWh to BTU:

E_{(BTU)} = 3412.14163312794 × 5 kWh = 17060.708 BTU
