Answer: Boilers are basically big hot water heaters used for commercial purposes. I mean it’s a little more complicated then that but that sort of explains the idea. High efficiency industrial boilers are usually more expensive but save on the energy bill on long term. There are two types of efficiencies with fuel-fired boilers: combustion efficiency and thermal efficiency. Combustion efficiency is the percentage of chemical potential energy of the fuel that is converted during the combustion process to produce thermal energy. Thermal efficiency is simply stated as the percentage of potential fuel energy that is converted to thermal energy leaving the boiler in the form of heated water or steam.
