If you live in a vintage home, then you may be the unknowing owner of a gravity furnace. If you haven’t heard about this kind of furnace, then you aren’t alone. Gravity furnaces are rapidly going out of style for more than one reason, which we will get into.

Now is a good time to have your gravity furnace checked to see if you’d benefit from asbestos removal in Minneapolis, MN and if you should consider a furnace replacement in the near future.
