Default Home Heating Cost Calculation

I have a youtube channel and I am making a video explaining how we heat our home. We have a propane boiler heating the floors with a woodstove doing the rest. I am trying to breakdown the btu cost of heating my home. I have used multiple calculators and have come up with 118000 btu to heat my home 34 degrees (-15 to 19C). But it's hard to find out how much it costs to maintain that heat all winter. Is there a way to measure how many btus it takes to maintain a certain temp for the whole winter?

Eg. If the average temp during the winter is -8C and my home stays 20C how do I figure the btus to maintain that for 4 months for example.

(I believe I picked the right sub forum for this.. if not I can redo it in another area...)
