Very Satisfied

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

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 emailed Peerless about converting the unit to gas and said the company replied promptly, although the information given was not very useful.
