Hi! I’m modeling my system in Design builder software and I have problem with a heating component like boiler. As I know boiler has thermal efficiency that should be set as an input but in DesignBuilder the only parameter is COP while it doesn’t seem to be right for boiler. What should I do? Thanks in advance.

If you are only seeing a COP input for your boiler in DesignBuilder, I assume that you are using the Simple HVAC Model Option. In this case, you will set inputs for the heating system -- all of the heating components working together. If you want to define each heating system component to specify their individual performance settings (like a boiler thermal efficiency), then you should use the Detailed HVAC Model Option instead.
