This was the old Williamson Temp-O-Matic, it was installed by my Dad in 1977, the furnace was way under sized for the addtion 2 story home that was added on. (Furnace was 62k A/C was 1 1/2ton) So, a wood furnace was added on, and my parents burned wood for almost 15 years(lot of wood cutting and hauling in my young days). They only used the gas for back up. You can see my hand mark from touching the hot duct work from the wood stove at one time!
This was the outdoor unit.. It worked well, but under sized for the added 2 story home, so couldn't keep up on our hot summer days upstairs. The paint peel on the top was from the unit sitting in the box outside for 3 years befoe dad installed it. (Don't know why dad didn't install this right away? We did the whole house pretty much oursleves)
New (this was done 2 years ago) Trane furnace installed, dealer cleaned the duct work (Lots of dust, and stuff from wood burning, and remodel.. Sorry no pix) Dealer told Dad best to keep the wood furance for back up and still was in good shape.. My parents hasn't fired up the wood furance since the new furnace was put in.
The return was cut into the return drop to allow better air flow since the duct was popping in when it turned on
Exhaust vent. I like the ideal Trane done. sure not an eye sore like some of the other guys do.
New XL12 outdoor unit. 2 1/2 ton w/ TXV valve, The house has been very comfortable after this was installed. electric bill went down half!
