  1. What is your opinion of the Crown AWR105 cast iron gas boiler model? I am interested mainly if it has a good repair record, but also if it is quiet and effective. Thank you.

     
    1. As with many boilers the noise levels will depend on factors such as proper installation and the type of fuel used. Oil boilers typically have higher noise levels than gas fired boilers. And as far as it being effective? Is it effective at providing good heat? Well that depends on whether it was sized properly for the load and the installation. Does it have the proper pump for the load to give the water circulation the correct velocity going through the piping. Too much velocity is bad just as not enough velocity or flow is bad. Crown makes good boilers and as with any HVAC equipment it is important to find a good contractor to install the boiler for you as proper installation will determine the longevity and efficiency of the boiler no matter the name brand. Crown is manufactured by the same company that makes Burnham Boilers and I have seen many in the field that run for a good long time with no problems – old boilers that are over 20 to 30 years range and longer. Again, what determines longevity and efficiency is proper installation and that takes a good company dedicated to doing it right. With any company that makes any product you will find a dud or lemon from time to time but I have not seen too many Crowns that were duds or lemons and when I did most of the time it was a result of improper installation or no regular maintenance.
