Calculate Natural Gas Costs
Natural Gas Units of Measure
Natural Gas rate units:
Therm = CCF and Dekatherm = MCF
1 Dekatherm = 10 Therms
10 Dekatherm = 100 Therms
100 Dekatherm = 1,000 Therms
1,000 Dekatherm = 10,000 Therms
CCF = one hundred cubic feet
1 CCF = 1 Therm (plus or minus some really small conversion factor) so for us its one for one.
1 therm = 1 ccf
100 cubic feet = 1 therm or 1 ccf
1,000 cubic feet = 1 mcf or 1 Dekatherm
1 MCF equals 1 Dekatherm
1 MCF equals 10 Therms
1 MCF equals 10 CCF
M stands for the Roman numeral 1,000
C stands for cubic
F stands for feet
Example - Minimum Gas account size: 5000 CCF annually which is the same as 5,000 therms annually or 500 MCF or 500 Dekatherms.
How to use natural gas calculator?
A natural gas calculator is a tool that helps you calculate how much natural gas you're using and how much it's going to cost you. It's a really helpful tool to use if you're trying to figure out how to save money on your natural gas bill, especially if you're using a lot of natural gas for a business.
How to calculate natural gas cost?
Here is an example. Let's say you have a small restaurant that you run and you want to know how much you're spending on natural gas each month. First, you'll need to find out what your commercial natural gas rate is. This is the rate that your natural gas supplier charges you for the gas you use.
Once you know your rate, you can use the natural gas calculator to figure out how much you're spending. You'll need to know how many therms you're using each month. This is a measure of how much gas you're using and it's what your natural gas supplier charges you for.
To find out how many therms you're using, you can look at your natural gas bill. It should have a section that tells you how much natural gas you've used in the last month. Once you have this number you can enter it into the natural gas calculator along with your commercial natural gas rate.
The calculator will then tell you how much you're spending each month on natural gas. You can use this information to figure out ways to save money such as compare natural gas rates, turning down the heat when it's not needed or upgrading to more energy-efficient appliances.
That's the basic idea of how to use a natural gas calculator for commercial natural gas rates. It's a really helpful tool to have if you're running a business or just trying to save money on your natural gas bill at home. Just remember to look at your natural gas bill to get your usage information and to use your commercial natural gas rate when you're entering your data into the calculator.
