When you cannot control the thermostat, it's a piece of junk! This new aqua system sucks. Plus, it doesn't help this heater guy with 50 years of experience. Has no clue how to adjust it. No, I would never buy one!!!

"I love my Peerless MI-05 Boiler"
I have had the Peerless MI-05 boiler for a little over a year now. I love it because it is cost effective, it is very small and compact, and it is relatively quiet. Due to limited space in my home it is in a closet off of a "office" room. So it not being loud like my last boiler is defiantly a plus. As I said before I have had this boiler for over a year and have not had to call the plumber back for any problems. If things go like they are then I will be a lifetime customer for Peerless, and I one hundred percent would recommend peerless boilers to any friends and family. PEERLESS THANK YOU.

Had the unit for 5+ years and it has never worked right...It seams like it's only guaranteed to produce hot water when it comes in that way from the water company. It has been a piece of crap since we had it installed. I will avoid peerless boilers at any expense.

"fire / smoke hazard loud noise when boiler starts"
About 7 years ago had a 17500 btu fhw oil furnace installed in my home. A few months ago, I noticed an acrid odor coming from the basement. An air flow valve had sprung a leak and the water shorted out the electric equipment and relay box directly below. The installer, my oil company, replaced the valve and relay box and billed me for $350. They said that since it had been 3 years since they serviced the unit, the valves had had a chance to corrode. When I asked about the other corroded valves, the installer said not to touch them as it would cause them to leak. The odor from the burning circuit boards lasted 2 weeks but I am still bugged that the furnace was so poorly designed. Why was the air valve placed directly above the electrical components? Why weren't they at least water proofed? The furnace is also very noisy and makes a loud whoomp when it turns on. I will check with Peerless and see if they will make good. I will update any progress or lack of.

"Peerless Pinacle oil boiler"
Owned the "top of the line" Peerless Pinacle boiler for two years. Have conked out at least 10 times in that period with a new record last week. The plumber came, cleaned and serviced it, and it was shut down in two hours! The company has done nothing but give us the run around.

Woke up this morning once again to no hot water. Fault 09. I have had the HVAC company who installed it out 9 times in 2 years. Cleaned this, cleaned that, replaced this, replaced that, works for a couple months then breaks again. Nothing but junk. Glad I decided to put a furnace in for a back up. Sucks not having hot water to take a shower with.

"Peerless pinicle pi 140"
So far, I have spent over $1,000 in repairs. The fan control board went first. Under warranty but the labor cost $480. Then the main control board went bad not under warranty. Now there is a new issue with the combustion making a growling noise.

Junk! From the day installed started having problems. Only when we threatened to have it replaced after initially having so many problems did someone react. That was 2005. Upgraded to the p125 control board. In 2008, blower impeller disintegrated, was replaced under extended warranty with a metal impeller. Old one was plastic. This year 2009, keep getting an f10 lockout, low flame sensed. replaced flame sensor still get f10 lockout. Unfortunately, this is in a retirement home 300 mile from where we live at present. Every time it goes out, it's a panic to get it running again. Absolutely worst piece of machinery I've ever purchased.

"Peerless Pinnacle PI-140"
When it works, it is loud. When it is broken, it is expensive for parts. I've heard it compared with Munchkin, who, by my research have cheaper parts by roughly 50%. I would have given it a very unsatisfied rating, but I have a limited experience with boilers. There is more headache than happiness for sure.

Please read this if you are at all considerating a Peerless Pinancle. I have had 3 furances installed, and 50 service calls to get this piece of junk working 4 yrs ago. I just spend another $3k for a new board 3 months which took a week for parts and peerless will not offer a replacement. Peerless will not return my calls and their distributor in Chicago, Profit Products is the worst. due yourself a favor and buy another boiler-I will have to now. Peerless is made by heat transfer.
