Preseason boiler maintenance is important if you care about your equipment’s longevity and lifetime return on investment.

Everyone loves saving money. There is a direct correlation between combustion efficiency and the amount of energy required to provide comfort or process heating. As the price of fuel continues to rise, it becomes more important to have the heat-producing equipment performing as efficiently as possible. Small percentages of improvement can often produce savings far in excess of the cost of implementation.

Why Is a Tune-Up Important?

To Improve Boiler Efficiency

A tune-up reestablishes the air-fuel mixture for the operating range of the boiler. Oxygen and unburned fuel are balanced to provide safe and efficient combustion. We also measure the carbon monoxide (CO) concentrations to ensure proper burner operation.

What is Combustion Efficiency?

Combustion efficiency is the calculation/measurement, in percentage, of how well the equipment is burning a specific fuel. Complete combustion efficiency (100%) would extract all the energy available in the fuel. However, 100% combustion efficiency is not realistically achievable. Various combustion processes produce combustion efficiencies from 0% to 95+%.
Combustion efficiency calculations assume complete fuel combustion and are based on three factors:

  1. The chemistry of the fuel.
  2. The net temperature of the stack gases.
  3. The percentage of oxygen or CO2 by volume after combustion.

If your calculation shows that your equipment is losing 25% of the heating value of the fuel through stack losses, your equipment is running at 75% efficiency.

Assuming the same heat output, these are general estimates. Actual results may vary.

For Example: With an increase in boiler efficiency of just 5% at $5.90 per $100: if your annual fuel usage is $10,000, that’s $590.00 in savings per year!
