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 2 930.71 kW (10,000,000 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)

  • SOR/2019-164, s. 19

Marginal note:Type

 For the purpose of these Regulations, an oil-fired boiler is one of the following types:

  • (a) household, if it has an input rate of less than 87.92 kW (300,000 Btu/h); or

  • (b) commercial, if it is has an input rate of greater than or equal to 87.92 kW (300,000 Btu/h) but not more than 2 930.71 kW (10,000,000 Btu/h).

  • SOR/2019-164, s. 20

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

      • (i) it is a household oil-fired boiler that is manufactured on or after June 30, 1999, or

      • (ii) it is a commercial oil-fired boiler that is manufactured on or after January 1, 2025; and

    • (b) for the purposes of sections 5 and 321, unless

      • (i) it is a household oil-fired boiler that is manufactured on or after December 31, 1998, or
