    1 cubic foot = 1,000 BTU/hr
    1 therm = 100,000 BTU/hr or 100 CFH

    You do have to know the BTU content of your local gas. For a long time, ours was 910 BTU per cubic foot. Now they've finally gone to the standard of around 1000 per. Some areas it is more than that. I believe that Rheem sizes it's orifices for 1075 BTU/cu ft gas. Had some problems back when we were real shy on heat.
