Hi
I'm trying to help dad ID his boiler. It was in the house as long as he could remember he's 78 now. He cant maintain it any longer and must switch to gas heat and would like to try to get rid of the one we have. The installer said they could remove it for a charge but Dad would like to find out if it can be of use to anyone else and hopefully recoup some of the money he is spending. Can anyone tell us anything about this boiler? Is it worth anything or should he just scrap it?

Offer it locally for free in exchange for getting it moved away or out...break even $, not cost and it's gone pronto!

Then there is the Classified section right here to offer it up get replies by Personal Message, just include your zip or location.
