Gotta bank the coals, and shovel ash 24/7.
Got a coal room in his basement and he shovels it right into this monster that heats water going through all the cast iron radiators. It's like a crematorium in the winter
Christ, I can smell it from here.
I wish I still had a pair of Devco overalls.
I have a pair I use around the yard. I wish I had kept them mint
When my wife and I first got together, we were renting a old turn of the century era house with an oil fired furnace/hot water heater sorta deal that pumped hot water through the cast radiators as well. Loved that thing. Would hold a ton of wood. We had a small storm style door that was used specifically for throwing the wood down into the basement for stacking. Loved that house!
When I was a teenager in CB it was my job to bring the coal from the "coal barn" into the house, not fun! My father still has his coal contract, but mostly uses the heat pump.
Coal was phenomenal heat!
I think I may still have some Devco coveralls at the folks place lol. And yeah I learned how to shovel coal at an early age. The old man would get coal delivered to one of my grandmother's places (they got a cheaper rate as my both grandfathers were miners). We'd wait for dark, drive to Number 2 and shovel the tonne or two (whatever he ordered) into loads in his 1/2 ton and unload at our house. Jesus I got the shivers just typing that lol
Ducted usually have an electric heating coil to supplement. But all air to air heat pumps need to defrost
Those covers are one thing. But the wind baffle i was referring to is this part in front
I remember the guy who used to deliver the coal. Used to show up in a big pickup with a pan shovel. He would empty the truck in 15 min. That guy was huge!
Haha yup, you didn't mess with those guys lol. What part of CB you from?
I should have made something up!
Oh lord, so that makes us arch enemies then LOL (GB here)
Pretty much haha! I wonder if that is still a thing?
God knows, but the way things are now, it wouldn't surprise me lol
True, Ill check it out in the summer!
Maybe you both have duked it out already behind Red's Cell Block or the Guildwood, then had pizza together at Johnny's.
hahahaha no shit, but you mean Sonny's not Johnnys
We were always in for a rough one when we played basketball games at BEC
Oh yeah, always dirtiest games of the year lol
Everyday was a rough one at BEC!
