1958 Holly forced air system

Anyone have any knowledge about these systems? Mine is original and seems to work fine... it doesn't seem possible! It was inspected and tuned up by the gas company. Anything I should watch out for?

What don't seem possible? That this old tank is still going?

On any old furnaces, there is really not much of anything to go wrong, other than the gas valve, fan limit, and blower motor.

Gas usage wise, it's pretty HIGH! I know when I replaced my old 1968 Chrysler AirTemp, my gas bill dropped half.

I've worked on many old Holly forced air as well as Holly wall furnaces. I'm glad you had it inspected. They are what they are. Parts are available since they are pretty much generic. The heat exchanger is the only non replaceable item now. Fifty plus years is a good run, there are still lots of older units still in service.

Pretty old thread. We'll send this one back to our searchable archives.

Many old furnaces out there still running. If you have questions or problems with yours.... please feel free to start a new thread.
