No, that's wrong.

$ units
2438 units, 71 prefixes, 32 nonlinear units

You have: watt
You want: btu
conformability error
       1 kg m^2 / s^3
       1055.0559 kg m^2 / s^2
You have: watt hour
You want: btu
       * 3.4121416
       / 0.29307107
Agreed, my math should have said "btu/hr", which is what any HVAC system is rated in -- how many btus in an hour it can remove.

I apologize for the horrendous error, but all of the math stands.

Just sed s/btu/btu\/hr/g

(also, you can do from watt to btu/hr with the same 3.413 multiplier)
