Kilowatts to BTU/hr

Btu per hour and kilowatts are both units used to measure power.

One BTU per hour is equal to one british thermal unit, or the energy needed to heat one pound of water 1 °F, for one hour.

The btu per hour is a US customary unit of power. Btu per hour can be abbreviated as Btu/h; for example, 1 btu per hour can be written as 1 Btu/h. In formal expressions, the slash, or solidus (/), is used to separate units used to indicate division in an expression.

One kilowatt is the power equal to 1,000 watts, or the energy consumption at a rate of 1,000 joules per second.

The kilowatt is a multiple of the watt, which is the SI derived unit for power. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for 103. Kilowatts can be abbreviated as kW; for example, 1 kilowatt can be written as 1 kW.
