Overview of the MPO-IQ
The Burnham MPO-IQ is a cast iron oil-fired boiler with an efficiency rating of 87% AFUE. The unit is Energy Star certified and features a 3-pass cast iron heat exchanger. It can be chimney or direct vented, with a direct vent option kit available in three sizes. A powder-coat steel jacket with three inches of insulation decreases standby heat loss while reducing operating sound levels. A reversible cast iron swing away burner door, along with removable clean-out ports, provide easy access for servicing the unit. The MPO-IQ uses the IQ Control System, which operates the entire boiler system to save energy and setup time and includes an optional touchscreen which displays settings and diagnostics in sentences instead of codes.

"Reliable Burnham Boiler"
I've owned my Burnham boiler for two years. I like the fact that I can fill up on heating oil towards the end of summer, or early fall at a cheaper rate than what it would cost me to pay for another type of heating source during the cold winters where I live. I dislike the fact that installing additional features is such a painful task. It was rather difficult for me to install my programmable thermostat with zone controls enabled. I've never experienced any problems that required the need to repair or replace my boiler unit. I believe that if a friend or family member called me to ask how I liked my Burnham boiler unit I would definitely tell them that I am very satisfied with my boiler and would not trade it for another heat source, and would recommend it to anyone that asked. If I had to go through the research and purchasing of a boiler unit again I would pick the same Burnham unit that I have.

"Burnham MPO-IQ Boiler Reliability"
Can anyone provide input regarding the reliability, quality and performance of the Burnham mpo-iq boiler? I havent read good things about the Burnham boilers here ( 93 very unsatisfied out of 115 ). Have the boiler quality issues been solved with the mpo design? I have also been quoted a pricey $9000 install cost to replace my 24 year old Peerless. Any info on this boiler is welcomed. Thanks.
