    Default Ok, Help me out. (Pictures)

    What is this?
    It appeared disconnected in the crawlspace. I have been doing inspections for almost 3 years and have never seen this one before.
    The house was built in 1928. Any help?

    Looks like an old "Octapus". May have been a coal or oil fired gravity furnace.

    That looked just like the one in my 1st house. It was probably a old coal gravity furnace. Mine was converted to gas and had a standing pilot that would cook 10 hot dogs with the amount of heat it put off .

    Here's an oil-fired one from a fixer home last week.

    Let us know where you're from. Finish your profile. Sometimes answers will depend on it.

    It looks like an old droid from a galaxy far away.

    Richard, your picture looks like a Beckett burner with a cad cell. Memories working on them are flooding my mind.

    Richard,

    I hope that you pointed the possible asbestos containing insulation.

    Not sure Kevin. It hadn't been serviced since 1997 and would only run for about a minute before tripping the reset button. My clients were rapidly losing interest in this place...one of the worst I've ever done. They walked...no, make that ran.

    The white stuff all over the ducts? Yes Jon, kind of hard to miss that!
