A hydronic heating system is both practical and efficient. It is also quite versatile, allowing you to heat your home with conventional radiators or baseboards as well as providing you with the ability to add other unique heating options to your system; including the Peerless® Partner® indirect-fired water heater to fulfill your domestic water heating needs. Other hydronic options include:
- Radiant systems (floor heating, radiant panels, towel warming racks, etc.)
- Snow-melting applications
- Tankless coils
- Hydronic coils for enhancing the efficiency of electric heat-pump applications
Another extremely beneficial aspect of hydronic systems is the ability to divide your home into heating zones. This allows you to control the heat in each of these zones with separate thermostats – a great benefit when heating multiple story homes.
The overall practicality, efficiency and versatility of a hydronic heating system is based on one key element—the boiler. In order to build a better heating system, choose a top-quality Peerless® boiler as the system’s foundation.

The Series WBV/WV™ residential, oil-fired boilers are available for use with both hot water and steam systems and designed for natural draft (chimney) venting. The fully-packaged or knockdown boilers are available in 3 sizes (3-5 sections) with 8 firing rates.

Honeywell operating controls, Taco circulators (water boilers) and probe type low water cut-off (steam boilers) are standard. A deluxe, insulated enameled steel jacket on all boilers reduces heat loss. The cast iron sections are assembled with steel push nipples and factory tested to assure a water tight seal.
The Series EC/ECT™ is a residential, oil-fired boiler for steam or hot water systems. Available as a packaged or knockdown unit, the Series EC/ECT™ is for use with natural draft (chimney) venting. The large water content of the boiler makes it ideal for steam and large volume hot water applications. Features include steel push nipples that provide a permanent water tight seal between sections, and a deluxe, insulated enameled steel jacket that reduces boiler heat loss. A full plate swing-out door on the Series EC/ECT™ allows for quick and easy boiler cleaning.
