BHP on a ship is a U.S. thermal unit of measurement, and stands for "Boiler Horsepower". One BHP unit is equivalent to 33,475 BTU (British Thermal Units).

This is a power unit conversion from British thermal units per hour (Btu/hr.) to its equivalent in horsepower (hp). There are 2544.43 btu/hr. in one horsepower. Conversely, there are 0.000393 hp in one Btu/hr.

Personaly I installed two boilers rather then one big one. I would imagine how many BTU out put you need that would dictate what size boiler one needed as one size does not fit all applications

In relation to air conditioning a BTU is a British Thermal Unit and most air conditioning manufacturers advise that 1 HP or horsepower equipment is enough to remove 9000BTU/hr. of heat.

The formula for this question is ... horse power = btu / 2545 Therefore 1 / 2545 = .0003929 hp

You do not mention how much you want to heat the water and in what period of time. But here are the figures: 1 btu = temperature increase of 1* F of 1 pound of water. One gallon of water weighs 8.33 lbs. So a boiler with an output rating of 2,332,400 btu will raise the temperature 1*F in 1 hour. (280,000x 8.33). Boiler outputs are rated in btu per hour . how many btu does it take to heat 15lb of water from 100 degrees F to 129 degrees F?

1000000

one btu

1 BTU = 1055 Joules

One KW of electricity will give you 3,412 btu of heat.

there is 3412 btu's to 1 kilowatt
