While furnaces heat and distribute air, boilers heat and distribute water. There are two types of boilers, hot water boiler and steam boiler. One of the advantages of an oil-fired boiler is that it can heat a home's domestic hot water as well as heat the home. A separate water heating unit is not needed. Another advantage of a boiler is that it heats a home very evenly. On average, efficiency ratings for conventional boilers 30 years old or older are in the mid-60% range. However, new boilers have efficiency ratings from 81% to 92%.
Peerless cast iron boilers have been manufactured and sold in the United States since 1908. Through experience, technology and innovation, Peerless has positioned itself as one of the best boiler manufacturers in the industry. All Peerless boilers are made of durable and reliable cast iron. Cast iron hot water boilers have life expectancies of 20 to 30 years or more. Cast iron heats up very rapidly and takes a long time to cool down, thus providing comfortable, efficient heating for your family.

Perfect for homes fueled by heating oil, System 2000 is the first fully integrated heat and hot water system on the market. Unlike conventional boilers, System 2000 is activated only when you need heat or hot water. After heat or hot water needs are satisfied, System 2000 runs an energy recovery cycle that puts nearly every ounce of heat left in the boiler to work for you. System 2000 remains cold when there is no heat needed, which keeps fuel dollars from being wasted. System 2000 provides multi-zone control of warm air, radiant heat, hydronic baseboard and domestic hot water as well as heating capabilities for pools or spas.
