The Peerless Purefire is a gas-fired condensing boiler series for residential and commercial applications. Reaching up to 95 percent AFUE, this series meets Energy Star standards for efficiency and offers a small footprint, with select models standing only 36 inches tall.

A direct-vent with sealed combustion, enhanced control board features, eco-friendly LoNOx operation and a stainless steel cabinet are additional components to this series. The Purefire also has outdoor reset capability and can be configured for natural or LP gas. Every unit is factory tested before shipment.
Two years ago when my old boiler failed on me I knew this year I would invest in a more reliable unit which meant pricey. But when I came across this handsome unit I was amazed at its efficiency and the price that went along with it. This unit is full of technology but yet still able to be small enough not to overcrowd my basement. In addition the Peerless unit is also Energy Star approved so I know it meets the highest standards and this deffinetly reflects on my monthly utility bills. Whats even more amazing is how maintenance free this unit is with it's self igniter technology which means no bending and crawling on my knees to start the unit. It practically does all the work itself and to add it comes with an impressive warranty meaning Im covered for years to come. This product would deffinetly get my recommendation to any friend or family.
Although several contractors posting on online discussion forums praise the Peerless Purefire series’ sleek design features, including the interface screen designed for easy programming, few homeowners across the web are as pleased with the unit. Sites such as contractortalk.com or heatinghelp.com host forums with a variety of customer complaints and troubleshooting issues. Instances of the boiler leaking, the unit failing to fire, faulty control boards and the unit not heating water are among the problems reported.
The review site hvac-for-beginners.com notes that the Purefire’s condensate management system is a unique feature and the durable stainless steel construction is a benefit to the unit, but mentions that the warranty on the unit is not very comprehensive.
