British thermal unit ' noun
Main Entry: British thermal unit
1876the quantity of heat required to raise the temperature of one pound of water one degree Fahrenheit at a specified temperature (as 39°F) Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary copyright © 2010 by Merriam-Webster, incorporated This is what a BTU is and you have 131,000 of these being produced at any given time by your heater. So this is not a temp or a heat it's the potential to raise heat in a certain amount of time. That is to say if you want to heat water for tea a good fire is better than a match. Both are hot and will burn but a good fire has more btu's and will burn a lot more. If you have the gallons of water a pint weighs about a pound so it should take eight BTU's to warm a gallon of water one degree. 131,000 should warm 16,375 gallong one degree in a hour. This expecally with a heat pump is all reletave. Sunny calm day's do much better than cloudyand windy days and so forth. A gas heater will always produce on a steady rate. I know this is a lot of HooGoo but their you have it. It's not a heat but a measurement of potential.
