100 year old furnace

Four Seasons replaces a 100 year old Lennox Furnace that was still operational through all these years.

This furnace was in full working order. (see pictures in the original post) The customer was looking to replace the furnace after over 100 years of service to capitalize on energy saver rebates and to get a more energy efficient model. Originally this was a coal fired furnace. It was later converted to oil and then most recently to natural gas.

While Four Seasons will service any make and model, there is no questioning the reliability of these old Lennox Furnaces.

    I have used Four Seasons heating in Oak Lawn for years they offer great service on my furnace. Does oak lawn offer utility rebates for new furnaces and do I have to call Nicor gas for the rebate? I was talking to a guy that works for the villiage of oak lawn and he said only that he never heard that oak lawn was offering rebates on heating and cooling. I told him I would call my local heating and cooling company to find out and that when I did I would post it on the Internet under oak lawn furnace repair.

    @Torry
    I had an old furnace just like that in oak lawn, my house was one of the first ever built in oak lawn. Were not sure how old our furnace was but man Lennox makes a great furnace. I don’t think there are to many other furnaces in oak lawn that are that old.

    I don’t think you will find another furnace around Chicago that is as old as that, I can’t understand why someone would keep a furnace that is this old. I have been all around town and I have never seen a furnace like that. It says a lot about Lennox and the quality of their furnaces. What are the chances that another furnace is as old as this and is it still working? I guess when it comes to old furnaces in Chicago you never can tell.

    The furnace we installed in place of the 100 year old furnace will help reduce the gas bills by as much as 65 percent. The old furnace took 3 days to remove and will be placed in a museum. The customer was so happy that her new furnace was also a Lennox that she said I will see you guys in 100 years when I need a new furnace. The heating and cooling in her home has improved greatly and she has had several friends come over just to see her new furnace. We are glad that Four Seasons Heating could be a part in finding and replacing this old furnace here in Chicago.

    This furnace is so old, what is the cost of a 100 year old furnace back then, it’s so crazy how big this furnace is. The furnace in my house is like 12 times smaller than this furnace. The guy that works on this thing needs a ladder just to look inside LOL. How much did this furnace cost to run, I wouldn’t want to pay the heating bill for this furnace, Chicago winters can get real cold.

  6. Max says:

    Hey Mike D., you would add as much as 65% to your monthly heating bill to get the operating cost of the 100 year old furnace. Not sure what the cost of installation would have been a 100 years ago. This furnace probably started out as a coal burning furnace, then a oil burner and then finally converted the last time to natural gas. Nice museum piece.

    That is so crazy to see a furnace that old, our new lennox furnace is like 40 inches tall and heats a much larger home for a lot less money. I wonder if my new lennox furnace will last more than 100 years, I hope I live that long to post it. We purchased our new lennox furnace from Four Seasons Heating and we are very happy with the service and prices. They have repaired our heating and cooling equipment for years and always have 24 hour service for heating and cooling.

    We live in Oak Lawn, our furnace needed repair and we were also thinking about a new energy star furnace. My husband called Four Seasons heating and cooling of Oak Lawn because we see the furnace repair trucks in Oak Lawn all the time. It seems that these trucks are around the town every day. The furnace man from Four Seasons was very nice and the furnace heating and cooling options he gave us were on Lennox. We had a Lennox furnace for 20 years and the Lennox brand is good. The installation of our furnace was great, they had great furnace prices and the furnace price we were givin was alot lower than other heating and cooling companies. I can tell you, around the town of Oak Lawn, Four Seasons heating cooling is the best.
