#### Watts to BTU per hour

The watt is a unit for power, is one of SI Units. Its name is in honor of the Scottish engineer James Watt, the eighteenth-century developer of the steam engine. The unit symbol for watt is W, defined as one joule per second, measures the rate of energy conversion or transfer.

The British thermal unit per hour is a measure unit of power, which is a traditional unit. The unit symbol of British thermal unit per hour is Btu/h, or sometimes BTU/h. It is most often used as a measure unit in steam generation, heating and air conditioning industries. One Btu/h is equal to 0.29307107 watt.

#### How to convert watts to BTU/hr

The power P in BTUs per hour (BTU/hr) is equal to 3.412141633 times the power P in watts (W):

P(BTU/hr) = 3.412141633 × P(W)

So

1W = 3.412141633 BTU/hr

#### Example

Convert 5000W to BTUs per hour:

P(BTU/hr) = 3.412141633 ⋅ 5000W = 17060.71 BTU/hr
