I grew up in an 800 squ. ft. house with a nat gas COZY floor furnace. MY two sisters and me would stand over it every winter morning.Please step AWAY from the condensing unit.

The old homestead in New Hampshire is now gone, but I now know who to call if I ever run into a one-pipe steam heating system here in south Florida.
But I'd expect a professional courtesy if I do.
Just doing supermarkets makes you appreciate the finer things...

At five years old my parents bought their first house it was heated with gravity oil heat, I can still remember the flue fires we had, after my father added a basement he bought a gas furnace, piping and fittings from a neihbour who worked for a heating company, then he bought some sheets of galvanized metal, made himself a brake and made his own ductwork and installed it all. He was a sheetmetal worker but worked in an aircraft plant which just about the whole family is or has worked in as well as myself.
