Heating Conversions Tables
I W = 3.412 Btu's/hr
1 Kw = 3,412 Btu's/hr
1 BTU/hr = 0.293 W

In short, if a boiler is advertised as having heat output of 14KW, then by multiplying it by 3.412 you get 47,000 BTU's which is sufficient on average to heat up to 8 standard radiators in your home. However, this does not take into account the size of rooms, insulation levels or efficiency of heating system.
BTU's/HR

BTU is short for British Thermal Unit and refers to the heating power of an appliance, measured by the amount of energy it produces in an hour.
Watt

A Watt is the Metric system for measuring heat and all boiler outputs are measured in Kilowatts(Kw)
