    Many of us thought it was for decorative purposes. You know kind of a "sunflower" in the crawl space.

    I have been working in construction since I could walk and in HVAC since I was 14 (30 years) and have seen the "sunflower" pattern once before, but it was nothing as elaborate as this. It almost looks as though someone was trying to make a collar and a self cooling connector at the same time.

    Confused

    I've seen things like that flower before. It may be an attempt at making those fins like on coils to recover heat from the flue.

    Talking The Sunflower- Industrial art

    I am going to save that labour of love someone built, then sell it to the Canadian Arts Council for 1.2 million.

    That's the sunflower we were referring to. After much debate we still haven't come to an agreement on what it was actually for. So we think it was just an artisitic "touch".

    Cool Update

    We changed it out about a month ago. She sledged apart nicely and was in the back of my truck by 11 am.




    Here is the new install, the boys had her up and running by 5:30 the same night.

    And don't forget the go-nad shield!! lol
