[TRNSYS-users] Gas Boiler

   The simplest way to model a boiler is to use Type6 with an efficiency 
of about 0.8. There is a somewhat preferable boiler model in the TESS 
HVAC library. Its primary difference over Type6 is that it allows for an 
efficiency that is dependent on the load on the boiler.
Kind regards,
