    A few more. The Crane-line was a forced air coal furnace. Chester said it never burned coil, he had a conversion burner put in upon installation. What a tank.

    The American-Standard on the right dates back to the 40s, that logo was replaced in 1949.

    Very nice!

    When I grow up, I may become a HVAC tech just so I can collect the badges.

    Granted, there will probably just be stickers by the time I could get into the business.

    Nice Badges Loonie, do you happen to know anything about that Westinghouse Heat pump? How old was it? I read in a local HVAC circular about a guy who STILL uses his 1958 Carrier Heat pump..........

    It's amazing how many "regional" brands there are. I didn't reconize many of them and I've been around this stuff since the mid sixties.

    The Westie Hi/Re/Li came out in the 70s, radical technology.

    We saw a 50s vintage GE HP down a basement that would come on though not stay running. Incredible amount of controls & wiring. Vented through intake & exhaust ducts that run along the chimney out the roof. He refused to entertain replacing it, was bound & determined to find someone who would fix it.

    No Idea what it's worth if much of anything. The only one I 'bought' was I had a load of clean scrap aluminum that I was gonna sell scrap guys. He knew I collected tags so he showed me that CI cleanout I posted earlier. I just traded him the aluminum. lol

    Just curious, what were you doing that took you to that site?? Seems like a shot in the dark.
