Default kWth or Nm3/h Ng to kWh

Hi All,

First post so be gentle.

I am trying to calculate the running costs of a gas burner and the manual says it is rated to use either;

400 kWth or 43 Nm3/h Ng

I need to convert this to kWh in order to calculate the cost of the gas. Any help appreciated.

I assume the th in 400 kWth is a subscript, meaning "thermal." While it is running, it consumes 400 kW of gas. Multiply by hours run (per week, month, year) to get kWh for the same period.

I thought that might be the case. Thanks for the clarification.
