Thermal Efficiency

more HVAC definitions

The thermal efficiency of a furnace or boiler is equal to the combustion efficiency minus the jacket loss. Stated differently, the thermal efficiency is the efficiency of the furnace after you subtract out the energy lost up the flue, and the energy thrown off (and lost) by the jacket of the boiler itself.
