Up next… the furnace… LoL!!! It’s the original from 1998.
Ours is original too. 1907!
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.
