Where to sell a used HW boiler


I recently installed forced air heating / AC and in the process removed the old HW radiator heating system. The boiler for that system was new when I purchased the house it about 7 years ago and still has many years of life left in it.

Anyone have any ideas on where someone might advertise a used boiler for sale? I tried craigslist and didn't get a single response.

Try Amazon or Ebay or your local newspaper classifieds or write it up on some 3 x 5 cards and drop them off at HVAC and plumbing supply houses around you. OOORRR if you have an unheated garage and get your hands on an old car radiator and some other junk, you could rig a small heater for the garage.

Where to sell a used HW boiler


I doubt that you would be able to find anyone willing to purchase this. You might be better off doing as Grampa Bud said and use it to heat your garage or work shop. You might also check into any local salvage yards and see if they would take it. Newspaper classifieds are another good idea.

We have some places that sell used/discounted hardware and parts here in town that carry everything from furnaces to toilets and door knobs, you might see if you have something similar in your area.

What price did you list it for on craigslist?
What Mfg?
Rating?
Most people are looking for a specific range
I've been scanning craigslist for a HW boiler
But so far most have been too big
