I'm actually not a do-it-yourselfer, yet.
But since I'm looking at a 1920s home that has a very old gravity-feed furnace, I'm wondering about pros and cons - if anyone has any opinions one way or the other....
(I have poked around a bit, and it looks like they can be an expensive pain to replace, the size of the ducts doesn't work well with new forced-air furnaces, but that they are efficient(?) and with replaced burners could last a long long time (or is this overly optomistic?)
thanks for any thoughts anyone might have
