What is different between heat and temperature
Heat is the energy of molecular motion in a substance. The temperature is the measurement that help us to understand the heat unit better. The comfort zone of heat level in a residential house is normally 67 Fahrenheit to 72 Fahrenheit. Or in Celsius 19 C to 22 C.
For converting Fahrenheit to Celsius use this formula:
For example to find 67 Fahrenheit to Celsius do this: C=(67-32)/1.8 ==> C=19.4 or ~ 19 celsius
When a technician install a thermostat in a house a lot of time, he has been asked what 72 F in C or reverse. Best Budget Boiler and Plumbing Inc technicians shall provide you all the question with an academic expansion.
The equipment to measure temperature called Thermostat with unit C or F and to measure heat you might find possibly a digital device measuring the heat (energy); however a matter of fact to measure the heat as energy you need a way or method. The BTU (British Thermal Unit) is the unit to measure heat.
For Gas units such as fireplace, hot water tank, furnace or boiler we use Clocking method.
The formula for calculating the heat energy is (3600*1000)/Revolutions ( A Certified Plumber or Gasfitter knows how to apply it)
The BTU is using in North America as unit for heat energy, in Europ and Asia a system called MKS heat measures in Joule or Kilo Joule.
1 KJ = .948 BTU or
1 BTU = 1054 Joul
