I get inside a lot of homes. Most of them are older homes and if I am showing it to buyers or putting it on the market I am going to need to go into the basement.
Over the years I have accumulated quite a collection of pictures of old boilers and furnaces. I can appreciate antique heating plants and can easily tell which era they are from. Boilers and furnaces have gotten smaller over the years.
It is rare that I see anything in a house that I have not seen before. I have a collection of old furnace and boiler pictures that I have taken over the years. It has become a kind of hobby. Here are some highlights, taken with my phone in dark basements. Some are from the 50’s and 60’s and others are from the early 1900’s.
There is likely asbestos in these pictures too.
