What did it cost in 1960?
Let me start bysaying that I am aware of the prohibition against discussing pricing in thisforum.
So, I asked for Dan’s OK for this post and he granted it.
I am curious about the historical costs of household heating.
I believe that home owners generally consume fossil fuels for two reasons:
heating and transportation. I know what cars cost in 1960 and I know what new
fuel efficient low emission vehicles cost now. Thus I know the cost we all pay
for these improvements.
What I do not know is what it cost to install a typical cast
iron boiler in 1960.
I would like to hear from anyone who has old invoices or
quotes from that time. I am looking for pricing on installed boilers, 100,000
to 200,000 BTU’s (Burnham, Peerless, Weil-Mclain, etc.) with one or more zones.
Thanks for your help.
