Why Our Peerless Boiler Warranty Program Is the Best in the Industry


Here at PB Heat, we understand the challenges our installer partners face on the job, and that’s why we not only sell America’s Best Built Boilers, but we also back them with a multi-faceted Peerless® Boiler warranty program that’s easier for contractors—and your customers—to understand and utilize.

After all, as an experienced residential and commercial boiler installer, you’re undoubtedly familiar with various manufacturers’ warranty programs—both the original “factory” warranties on equipment, as well as extended service agreement (ESA) offerings.

You’re probably also used to being confused about how some of these programs work and how to help your customers easily enroll for better peace of mind on their new condensing equipment purchases. Later, when you need to make a warranty claim for work you performed, it can be frustrating to determine the paperwork you need to file, too. Have you had this experience?

Well, we’ve recently updated the Peerless Boiler Complete Warranty and Extended Warranty programs to address several of these pain points and provide a better guarantee—and warranty claim experience—for everyone who chooses Peerless Boilers.

Here’s what you need to know.
