Removing a Floor Furnace

I just bought my first house about 6 months ago. I do not have any DIY knowledge, but have a brother that has complete home remodel knowledge. How hard and what are the relative costs to removing a floor furnace? The previous owners put central air in when thry remodeled but left the floor furnace in. Original part of the house was built in the 50's. The area where the furnace is has hard wood floors under carpet. Any information would be grealy apprciated.

Well, I've done this and it's not brain surgery. Get under there and have a look ! You'll have to remove the supports, cap off the gas, etc, and replace all the flooring up top. Not a small job but not a huge one either. Very satisfying.

similar question

Similar situation.

We are hiring someone to refinish the hardwood floors. He suggested disconnecting the furnace from the floor and physically dropping it under the house before he puts down a new floor.

Is there any reason to remove the furnace vs. leaving it under the house?
I can't think of a reason, but once the floor is built there will be no way to get the furnace out.
(The gas is already disconnected)

Floor furnace removal?

I have a similar situation. The house was built in 1950 and is finally getting HVAC system. Now, the question is what to do with the floor heater. I would like to take it out because I could use the floor space. It would be so much easier to just drop it and floor over it. I hate the thought of that thing laying there rusting under the house. There is almost no information of these old things. How did your situation work out? Thanks.
