The Peerless WBV/WV is an oil-fired boiler available for both hot water and steam systems. It has an efficiency rating of up to 87.5% AFUE and has earned the Energy Star label. They are available as fully-packaged or knockdown units and come in three sizes, from three to five sections, with eight firing rates. The cast iron sections are factory tested and assembled with steel push nipples. An insulated enameled steel jacket reduces heat loss, and a full plate swing-out door allows easy service and cleaning.
Excellent boiler, came prepackaged as wbv04150. Installed it in my small home. Heat loss called for smaller nozzle. Set up unit w/del .85 80 B. Runs like a champ very very efficient on par w/ Biasi, Pensotti etc. 87- 88.1 eff. like they claim running am afg beckett. and yes because its high speed it is a bit louder but its saving me money so I don't care. Folks who complain about noise should in my opinion switch to gas. Peerless is excellent in my book
Most of the problems with the WBV/WV listed on HVAC forums are minor, and a few have nothing to do with the unit itself. These include a faulty tempering valve and a faulty showerhead that was causing the homeowner to think there was not enough hot water being produced. A consumer on doityourself.com emailed Peerless about converting the unit to gas and said the company replied promptly, although the information given was not very useful.
