"Piece of Garbage"
Along with several other reviewers, I too have had nothing but problems with this poorly designed piece of garbage. The blower uses a plastic fan that disintegrates from the heat the unit generates. Keep in mind that this is a boiler system with a purpose to generating heat! Triangle Tube offers a silly one year warranty from the date of sale to the contractor. That is the key phrase "to the contractor". The company is well aware of the fact that contractors often purchase these units well in advance. It may take 6 mo's to a year before the system ever gets installed, Leaving the homeowner with the false understanding that they have a warranty, when in fact in most cases the warranty has already expired prior to their installation.

HIGH EFFICIENCY?? more like high repair costs! I had our Presgige 110 installed in 2008. It worked as it should for the first 2 years, but now it has stopped working a total of 6 time is the past 2 months. The furnace installers have been out three times to replace parts when a reset wouldn't restart the machine. Its still not reliable so we are forced to stay home with an unreliable heating system, unsure of when it may fail and lead to frozen pipes. Not wise to pay premium price for a piece of poor quality workmanship

HM G-25 "Phase III" The contract was for a larger unit, but while I was briefly away, the installer convinced my wife that this smaller unit was sufficient. We never had sufficient hot water for a good shower. Perhaps this was an element in some of premature failure. Failing elements include flame sensor, blower, water pressure relief valve.

Shortly after having a combo installed, problems started. Every winter when we use the heat part of the system, something goes wrong. We have had over 35 services and have had to replace parts, some twice. When the boiler is down, we also have no hot water. They claim their product has low maintenance, right. Every year we have 3-5 maintenance done. We are done. Wrote to the company and told them it's a defective system (like a car, you sometimes get one, I guess). Hope they respond and look at this situation. The paper trail of service doesn't lie. Warranty was for 5 years. This all started in year 1 and is still a problem.
