Come on, the thing is way past its design limits....

In reply to old oil furnace by cathy on April 19th, 2000 10:37 PM [Go to top of thread]

The furnace was designed to last maybe 20 years, 30 tops. You've managed to milk almost 50 out of it. I figure, in todays dollars, it cost maybe 2,500? Maybe? So what is that, $.14 a day for 50 years...

Time to retire it, and get a new furnace that is quieter, more efficient, and cleaner burning for the environment. Really.

The energy savings alone will really help the costs, and your local utility may even have a subsidy or low rate loan program to upgrade to gas or something.

Good luck!
