Furnaces and Boilers | Department of Energy
Upgrading to a high efficiency furnace or boiler is an effective way to save money on home heating. Most U.S. homes are heated with either furnaces or boilers. Furnaces heat air and distribute the heated air through the house using ducts. Boilers heat water, and provide either hot water or steam for heating.

HOW A GAS-FIRED HEATING SYSTEM WORKS
The fuel/air mixture then flows to the burners, where it is ignited by either a pilot light or an electronic spark. Ignition occurs only during start-up. Once started, the flames continue to burn, with additional gas and air fed to the burners by the gas supply line, the air shutters and furnace/ boiler room air.
Warm Air Central Heating Systems – Gas Warm Air and Combi …
Mar 18, 2015· Your old gas, LPG or oil fired warm air unit is removed and replaced with this neat box, which is coupled to your existing ductwork. There’s no flue/chimney system, because the new unit uses energy from a boiler located somewhere else. No gas ventilation required, no fire risk, no carbon monoxide risk from the unit.
Burners and overfire air (OFA) – Babcock & Wilcox
B&W engineers designed the AireJet burner with an innovative burner structure — a burner built around a center jet of air, encircled by the fuel stream, and then wrapped in additional combustion air Pulverized coal-fired boiler applications Much cleaner burning so it requires less excess air to minimize carbon monoxide (CO) and unburned carbon
Combustion Air Requirements:The Forgotten Element In …
Temporary air intakes such as open boiler room windows can be closed (and often are when persons in the boiler room are feeling cold), cutting off the boiler’s air supply. When the combustion air supply is closed off, the fire starts to smoke as the air supply is exhausted. Incomplete combustion occurs and carbon monoxide is generated.
Boilers | Gas & Oil Fired | Carrier Residential
Overall Efficiency <p>Efficiency within a model group will tend to vary by the size (capacity) of the unit. Some products, like furnaces, may also be affected by installation orientation (horizontal, upflow, or downflow) or even by the nozzle used in installation, as is the case with boilers and oil furnaces.

Improve Your Boiler’s Combustion Efficiency
On well-designed natural gas-fired systems, an excess air level of 10% is attainable. An often-stated rule of thumb is that boiler efficiency can be increased by 1% for each 15% reduction in excess air or 40°F reduction in stack gas temperature. Suggested Actions Boilers often operate at excess air levels higher than the optimum.

That number goes up to 2.5 tons if you heat with oil.
Boiler – Wikipedia
A fuel-heated boiler must provide air to oxidize its fuel. Early boilers provided this stream of air, or draught, through the natural action of convection in a chimney connected to the exhaust of the combustion chamber. Since the heated flue gas is less dense than the ambient air surrounding the boiler, the flue gas rises in the chimney …
