Boiler Efficiency Calculator

Natural Resources Canada has developed an online Boiler Efficiency Calculator to help managers quickly analyze the efficiency of boiler operations associated with heating and steam plants fired by natural gas and fuel oil.

By estimating the efficiencies of steam boilers and high temperature water generators, such as those used in central heating and industrial steam generation (with input firing rates of 10 to 200 GJ/h), this online tool will help companies make informed decisions and investments that lead to performance optimization, such as:

  • upgrading control systems
  • installing additional heat exchangers, economizers and air heaters
  • replacing existing systems with new, more efficient equipment.
