    Might want to clean that coil first though.... Just dont forget to vent the place for a couple hours before you go back in...

    On a more serious note, draining the pipes and winterizing the place until you can replace the unit might be your best bet if no one is currently renting the place.

    What is that? An old oil burner? Or was it gas fired?
    Not as lean, not as mean, but I'm still a hardcore, ass-kicking, hard charging Marine! Oohrah!

    Customer sent someone out to take care of that. Hope they cut it off at the street and turned the gas water heater off too.
