WHAT DOES THERM MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Therm

Natural Gas is usually measured by volume in the United States and is stated in cubic feet. A cubic foot of gas is the amount of gas needed to fill a volume of one cubic foot under set conditions of pressure and temperature. To measure larger amounts of natural gas, "CCF" is used to denote 100 cubic feet, and "MCF" is used to denote 1,000 cubic feet. To provide greater accuracy in comparing fuels, energy content is measured in terms of "British Thermal Units ". A BTU is the amount of heat required to raise one pound of water, one degree Fahrenheit at or close to its point of maximum density. One British therm is a non-SI unit of heat energy equal to 100,000 British thermal units. It is approximately the energy equivalent of burning 100 cubic feet of natural gas. Since natural gas meters measure volume and not energy content, a therm factor is used by gas companies to convert the volume of gas used to its heat equivalent, and thus calculate the actual energy use. The therm factor is usually in the units therms/CCF. It will vary with the mix of hydrocarbons in the natural gas.
