Temp (deg C) to Watts

Temp (deg C) to Watts

Can you please tell me where the Celsius heat unit to Watt hour conversion comes from (in the online conversion), ie the formula ?  It looks a bit like the Stephan-Bolztmann constant, but that's only part of the S-B formula, which has a T^4 in it.  

What I'm trying to do is calculate the effective energy in Watts emitted from a window by taking external glass temp and internal air temp, in deg C

Well there isn't a formula really, just a conversion factor.

1 centigrade heat unit (International Table) = 0.52752793 watthour

If you are looking for a formula for converting it using non-standard temperature and pressure, I wont be able to help you there.   But I do have conversion factors for several different temperatures, if that will help.
