Peerless Boiler

I have a three year old Peerless DE, hot water, fan assissted boiler. I am making some changes in the basement and want to know if I can direct vent.
If so:

1. does Peerless provide a direct vent kit?

2. What are the install/clearance specs?

3. Can you install a vent damper on this arrangement?

4. does Peerless have a website for tech support?

    See attached I&O manual. Or get your own @ PEERLESSBOILERS.COM
    But some of your questions are scary...know fear

    CJ, this is a job for a PRO

    you really don't want to mess with the boiler's exhaust system yourself. The risk of poisoning yourself or your family is not worth taking. Plus, many boiler makers' warranties are void unless the installation is done professionally.

    Try the Find a Professional page of this site. There are a lot of good people there.

    1. The DE boiler can be direct vented as an option and the appropriate components are available for this. You must realize that this is "NOT" a sealed combustion appliance. It takes its combustion air from the area it is in. Our sealed combustion unit is the PSC now PSCII boiler. Accordingly if you are going to tighten up the basement you will have to provide for sufficient combustion air.

    2. The install clearances and specs are in the installation manual.

    3. A vent damper is not an option on this boiler.

    4. My advice if you are not a heating professional is to contact one and have them do the relocation of the appliance.
