Peerless cast iron boilers are manufactured in the United States. Through experience, technology, and innovation, they have positioned them selves as one of the best Peerless Series MIH Boiler manufacturers in the industry. Most all of Peerless boilers are made of cast iron. Cast iron hot water boilers have life expectancies of 20 to 30 years or more.

Cast iron is very durable and reliable. It heats up very rapidly and takes a long time to cool down, thus providing comfortable, efficient heating to your family. Boilers made of cast iron have a much larger heating surface than steel or copper-tube boilers. The inside heating surface of a cast iron boiler is approximately six times that of the inside surface of a typical copper-tube boiler. Since there is a larger heating surface, more heat can be transferred to the system, which means that your boiler will cycle less often providing even heating and extending its life.
