    How much gas does a 175,000BTU heater use/hr?

    Just trying to figure out roughly my hourly cost to run my heater. It's a Jandy Legacy heater, 175,000BTU. I know my gas cost per cubic meter, so just wondering roughly how much gas a 175,000 heater would go through in an hour?

    1 therm (100K BTUs) is about 96.7 cubic feet of gas. Your heater will burn about 4.8 cubic meters/hour

    Thanks Scot, just what I was looking for!

    I had done a rough estimate, and guessed at about $2/hr to run. Using your "sharper pencil", I get $1.16/hr to run.
