We are about to begin a basement build out. We have an old non-working 1950s American Standard boiler in our basement. We have no idea how to get rid of it. We have called around to plumbers, hvac and remedial companies but not a lot of luck. We have one person on the side willing to look at it to remove it for most likely close to $1,000. You can only exit the basement through stairs that lead to the garage. There is not a direct exit to the outside and the unit is very large.
Has anyone had any experience with the removal of one of these? Some of the furnace is still hooked up to the chimney and some of the piping. There is also an old electrical box still in place. I would love to know who to call to have it removed without breaking the bank on price.
