Romanian translation:cvadrilion BTU
Explanation:
BTU = British Thermal Unit, unitate de masura a energiei. 1 BTU este cantitatea de energie necesara pentru a creste temperatura a 1 lb. de apa distilata cu 1 grad Fahrenheit, de la temperatura la care apa are cea mai mare densitate (39 grade F, sau 4 grade C). 1 BTU e aproximativ egal cu 1055 Jouli (sau wati-secunda). Eliberarea de caldura a unui echipament electronic se masoara in BTU pe ora; 3,7 BTU/h este echivalent cu 1 Watt de caldura disipata.

Daca este vorba de un aparat/ instalatie de aer conditionat, nu trebuie transformat.
Capacitatea sau puterea de racire/incalzire a aparatelor de aer conditionat este in general exprimata in BTU/h (British Thermal Units/h).

neutral  mihaela.: Avand in vedere faptul ca Romania este o tara in care se foloseste sistemul metric, nu ar trebui facuta si transformarea (macar in paranteza!), in W sau, si mai inginereste, in Jouli? ... continuarea la discutii ...
