learn MoreGas boiler burners consume fuel based on their BTU output. Natural and propane gas have specific levels of energy contained within them. One cubic-foot of natural gas contains 1075 BTUs of energy. However Gas boiler burners are not 100-percent efficient. If you know the burner efficiency you can calculate the exact fuel consumption per the output of the burner.

learn MoreThe higher the BTU rating the less amount of time that appliance will produce heat with 1 gallon of fuel. Example we have a Kerosene heater that produces 25000 BTUs 1 gallon of kerosene itself can produce 135000 BTUs dividing the BTUs of the fuel by the BTUs of the appliance you get the amount of time the appliance will produce heat. In this example the Kerosene heater will be able to produce its output of
