Energy Efficiency

C-B Sustainability logo

The easiest and quickest way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions is to use less energy to produce goods and services. Every percentage increase in energy efficiency reduces emissions by an equal percentage. Boiler solutions developed and integrated for energy efficiency are the obvious starting point. But making processes more efficient is critical to the equation.


We are experts at helping customers increase energy efficiency throughout their boiler system and processes in order to eliminate energy waste and reduce emissions. Our power tool for maximizing performance and minimizing energy used in processes is the Boiler Plant Optimization™ program, which benchmarks the current state of a boiler room and provides a quantifiable solution to meet sustainability goals.


To improve efficiency of existing boilers, we offer high-efficiency economizers and other heat recovery solutions that increase system efficiency by 5% on average. Advanced controls are another way to help equipment return to its original efficiency at start-up, and intelligent monitoring systems such as Prometha® Connected Boiler Solutions ensures a boiler system remains optimized. 


We also offer industry-leading hydronic boilers, including the ClearFire™-CE (CFC-E) hydronic boiler, named 2019 Product of the Year by consulting-specifying engineers. Its dual-return advantage, enables it to achieve up to 99% product efficiency, approximately 6% more than competitors' designs.
