You can select a default Boiler from the drop-down menu on the Boiler Library page under the Components Library. Click Boiler to see the list of Boilers. You can view and specify the properties of boilers in the Boiler Library. You can create a new boiler component by copying an existing one. After you create a copy, change the properties as required and give the new boiler a unique name to distinguish it from the others. HOMER adds the new boiler to your boiler library when you click OK. The new boiler then appears in the list of available boiler types on the Boiler Set Up page under Design. See the Library section of the help for instructions.
