TOPIC: Gravity fed heat...almost!

Gravity fed heat...almost! 11 years 10 months ago #36951

I love old houses!  I almost got to check out a gravity fed system, but instead, it turned out to be a 1976 Bryant forced air system.  But they decided that they had limitless ductwork, SOOO...

The Octopus Lives!  ;D :o ;D

Hey Casey, that might have been an upgrade from the gravity heat from an old wood burning furnace at one time.  :)
Not the most efficient system, but worked, right? ;)

You would be correct Marcel.  I found the chute/wood storage room just adjacent to the room with the furnace.

;D  Hey, that window is the same size I had when a kid to bring in the wood for the winter in the basement.


Dave, they will find a use for us somewhere.  :)
