Up next… the furnace… LoL!!! It’s the original from 1998.


Ours is original too. 1907! :lol:

But each time we have it checked they say the same thing…it will last forever. There’s virtually no moving or electronic parts, it’s a metal hulking beast. We have radiator heat so the “energy savings” of a new furnace is negotiable. Forced air would be different, radiators not so much.


My apt. complex that I managed for many years had a steam radiator. Probably the same radiator since 1916… LoL!!! It’s a beast and I worked on a few times pressuring it. I would hate to have to take it apart and install a new one. Plus, it was a pain in the butt since it heated 22 apts. (4 3-BR, 12 2-BR & 6 1-BR) and trying to tell tenants that there really is no thermostat to control the heat.
