I recently bought a home with a detached garage, and within it is an older natural gas heater that I cannot find any information on. It is hooked to the gas line and has instructions on how to light the pilot and operate it, however, I would like to clean it out first because it looks like it has been a very long time since it has been used.
It's about five feet tall, stamped LSC-25 on the front and vents horizontally through the garage wall to outside (metal circular fins).
Who manufactured this heater, approximately when was it made, and how do I go about cleaning it so that I can safely operate it?
I finally found the model information; it was completely covered with dirt and dust.
"Gravity Direct Gas Heater / Mfd. by LSC, Inc. Kansas City, MO / 1982"
I live in KC, so that's kind of neat that it was made here. It states that there is an optional blower... too bad it's not installed!
