Boiler Ratings part 11, A Repairman Reviews The Brands...

Boiler ratings part 11 continues our expert and unbiased reviews with a look at the NTI, Oroflam, Peerless, and Pennco brands.

BRAND--------BASIC-PREMIUM-ULTIMATE

NTI-----------------NA--------NA--------5* 

These boilers are made in Canada by NY THERMAL INC. The TRINITY LX models have an efficiency of up to 97% and can be wall or floor mounted. They use touchscreen controls for ease of operation and use modulation to closely match the heat loss of the home. They have a durable stainless steel heat exchanger that is backed by a very good warranty. 

OROFLAM----------NA--------1*-------<1* 

This brand is made in Italy and offers sealed combustion boilers for either internal or external installation. The ORK model boilers are available in  three sizes but their website is not much help. 

PEERLESS----------2*--------3*-------<1* 

The MIH series of units are basic boilers with durable cast iron construction and a low profile design. They use spark to pilot ignition which can lead to more maintenance and repairs. The DE models are sealed units that can be vented with or without a normal chimney. The PUREFIRE series are condensing modulating boilers with an AFUE of up to 96% and a unique condensate management system. They are available in six sizes and feature durable stainless steel construction but the warranty on parts other than the heat exchanger is not very good. The units are available in the USA and Canada but only through their installer network.

PENNCO----------1*--------1*---------<1* 

This brand is from ECR INTERNATIONAL but is only available through a limited dealer network in the USA. The 15B SERIES II models are atmospheric boilers that are available in nine sizes to match most any home's heating needs. They have a built-in vent damper control for energy savings. The FSB series are cast iron induced draft models and are available in six sizes. Both models have all of the basic features but the warranty is not very good. The P90 is a high efficiency boiler but does not have many of the latest features and the guarantee on the unit is not very good when compared to other brands.
