How to Convert Therms to KWH


Therms, abbreviated thm, and kilowatt hours, abbreviated kWh, both measure heat energy usage in commercial settings, such as the amount of heat supplied to a building as recorded on a heating bill. The therm comes from the Greek word "therme" and equals about 29.3 kWh. Having this conversion factor allows people to change a heat energy amount from therms to kilowatt hours quickly and easily.
