    Default Old floor furnaces with grates

    I came across your forum when looking for information on old floor furnaces with grates. We are about to demolish an old house with one of those furnances which looks to be in good shape. We've heard people put them in cabins, and wonder what (if any) value they might have and how much they could be sold for. Any ideas? We don't want to destroy it if it's usable. Thanks!

    It's probably worth what you can get for it. Depends on type of fuel, condition, effeciency, size, and demand in your area. I doubt if it would bring much, but won't hurt to try.

    In most places, new installations of floor grate furnaces are not allowed. IF I was in the market, I would be skeptical of a used unit because if the heat exchanger is cracked, it's done for.
