Inspection yesterday of an old Victorian house built in 1892 showed me a boiler that even I haven’t seen before. Although the client is not buying the house, I am curious if anyone has any clue as to how old this converted steam boiler is. Took pictures but do not know how to present it.
Here is the information I put in the report.
Need help on this one.
I bet you Jae can help. ha. Don’t know why I did not think of that sooner.
All jokes aside, I would appreciate any comment from anyone. Thanks in advance.
**Heating System: **Oil-fired appeared to be an old coal steam boiler, perhaps, converted to oil. In drastic need of cleaning and from the looks of it appears to be on it’s last leg. Strongly recommend an Oil furnace technician to evaluate.
Manufacturer: Ideal #7 American Radiator Corp. **
** #254 H. D39-3
Heating capacity: no listing
System age: unknown
