How to convert kilowatts (kW) to British Thermal Units per hour (BTU/hr).
One kilowatt is equal to 3412.142 BTU per hour:
1 kW = 3412.142 BTU/hr
The power in BTUIT per hour P(BTU/hr) is equal to 3412.142 times the power in kilowatts P(kW):
P(BTU/hr) = 3412.142 ⋅ P(kW)
Convert 5kW to BTU/hr:
P(BTU/hr) = 3412.142 ⋅ 5kW = 17060.71 BTU/hr
