What are the 10 Best Boilers?
Crown Boiler Company was founded in 1949 and originally distributed products for heating systems such as operation controls and oil burners in the Northeatern part of the country. Crown began to expand in the 1970’s after showcasing a line of residential cast-iron boilers, and by the 1990’s they were supplying hydronic boilers throughout the U.S.
The company’s products are carried by several national heating and cooling companies. Crown also sells its line of heating products through individual wholesalers.
Crown Boiler Company carries a wide variety of products for heating both homes and businesses. Heating units for residential oil and gas-fired systems are available, as well as commercial heavy-duty units. Select gas-fired boilers are Energy Star rated, including the 95% AFUE rated Phantom, and all four of Crown’s oil-fired boilers feature the Energy Star label.
Warm air furnaces that run on gas and oil are available at Crown Boiler Company, with gas furnaces available in 80+ and 90+ units.
