Anouther Monster Gone
OK I have replaced older, but I still enjoy pushing these monsters into the scrap pile. This was a Gaffers & Sattler furnace and according to the home owner installed in 1957 or 58. The serial number does show a 57. That being said it lasted 52 years … wow.
Our customer decided on the American Standard 95% 2 Stage Variable my best selling furnace and most favorite to install. We also installed a Honeywell 4″ pleated filter bank in the return system.
As you can see this was a basement application requiring an upflow furnace. I decided to add some sleepers under the furnace just in case it ever floods and because there was no drain we added a condensate pump to remove condensate from the furnace.
If you look close in the picture above you can see the HWT vent went down hill into the existing furnace vent, we also fixed this at the same time. Its never a good idea to have a vent go down hill, but in this case I think they had so much rise that it still pulled the burnt gases out.
