1. ENERGY PERFORMANCE ASSESSMENT OF BOILERS
Carrier Performance Series gas boilers deliver on the promise of comfort you can feel, efficiency and savings you can appreciate, and quiet, lasting performance you can depend on. Designed to meet ENERGY STAR specifications, our Performance series gas boilers achieve AFUE ratings of …
Typical boiler efficiencies range from about 90% for the best solid biomass fuel boilers to close to 95% for oil- and natural gas-fired boilers, Table 3.2. The main reason for the poorer performance of biofuels is the high moisture content of the fuel, which increases flue gas losses. Table 3.2.
Upgrading your furnace or boiler from 56% to 90% efficiency in an average cold-climate house will save 1.5 tons of carbon dioxide emissions each year if you heat with gas, or 2.5 tons if you heat with oil.

Boiler Horsepower is defined as the thermal energy rate required to turn 34.5 lbs of water at 212 °F to steam in one hour. BTU/Hour A BTU, or a British Thermal Unit, is a unit of heat defined as the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of a single pound of water by 1 °F.
Boiler Efficiency - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics
Performance of the boiler, like efficiency and evaporation ratio reduces with time, due to poor combustion, heat transfer fouling and poor operation and maintenance. Deterioration of fuel quality and water quality also leads to poor performance of boiler. Efficiency test-ing helps us to find out how far the boiler efficiency drifts away from the best efficiency.
