SUBDIVISION BOil-Fired Boilers

Marginal note:Definitions

 The following definitions apply in this Subdivision.

CSA B212

CSA B212 means the CSA standard CSA-B212-93 entitled Seasonal Energy Utilization Efficiencies of Oil-Fired Furnaces and Boilers. (CSA B212)

oil-fired boiler

oil-fired boiler means a boiler that is intended for application in a low pressure steam, or hot water, central heating system, has an input rate of less than 88 kW (300,000 Btu/h) and is

  • (a) exclusively oil-fired; or

  • (b) capable of being fired, at the choice of the user, by either oil or another fuel. (chaudière à mazout)

Marginal note:Energy-using product
  •  (1) An oil-fired boiler is prescribed as an energy-using product.

  • Marginal note:Limits

    (2) However, an oil-fired boiler is not considered to be an energy-using product

    • (a) for the purpose of section 4, unless it is manufactured on or after June 30, 1999; and

    • (b) for the purposes of sections 5 and 321, unless it is manufactured on or after December 31, 1998.

Marginal note:Energy efficiency standards
  •  (1) The energy efficiency standards set out in column 3 of the table to this section apply to oil-fired boilers described in column 1 that are manufactured during the periods set out in column 4.

  • Marginal note:Testing standard

    (2) An oil-fired boiler complies with the energy efficiency standard if it meets that standard when tested in accordance with testing procedures established by the standard set out in column 2 that are applicable to an oil-fired boiler as defined in section 319.
