Peerless Boilers Features Analysis

What features set Peerless boilers apart from the rest? Here are the unique features available.

  • Energy Star efficiency: Peerless’ group of Energy Star-certified boilers is among the tops in the industry. Series that are certified by Energy Star are: WB90, WBV/WV, Pinnacle, Cast 92, Combi 160 and PUREFIRE. While there are no federal tax credits for energy efficient boilers currently available, most utility companies continue to offer rebates and credits for the installation of Energy Star equipment. Contact qualified local installers for details, or you can contact your utility company or search this clearinghouse of energy credits.
  • Combination boilers: The Combi 160 series combines hydronic heating with the production of hot water. The system uses an integrated storage tank with a heat coil for domestic hot water. The result is efficiency that lowers equipment and operation costs.
  • Stainless steel boilers: The advantages of stainless steel include lighter weight and longer lifespan when corrosion is eliminated. There are three Peerless boiler series featuring stainless steel construction. PUREFIRE and Combi 160 are gas boilers; The Pinnacle Series is oil boiler.

How Peerless Compared to Other Brands

Peerless gives you one of the largest and best selections of boilers for your home or light-commercial space. Of special note are the five oil models for homeowners where home heating oil is commonly used including the Energy Star-certified 92% AFUE Pinnacle condensing boiler that is one of the most efficient oil boilers available.

As you compare Peerless boiler prices with prices from other leading brands, it is clear that Peerless product costs are higher than average, though not as costly as Laars boilers. Peerless warranties are above average and include lifetime heat exchanger warranties on several models. However, Peerless is very clear that the warranty will be voided if the unit isn’t installed and serviced by a licensed heating contractor or if it is not used for its intended purpose. The guidelines are tougher than with most other brands, though all have some restrictions.
