I bought a house a couple of years ago with a wood furnace in the garage. I have used it once and probably won't use it again. What would it be worth?

At that age, maybe not much more than scrap steel value

It doesn't look like it was used much it is probably worth a few hundred. By the way there is not much of anything that meets minimum code about that install

Yes, the pictures help. If the firebox inside is in as good shape then it may make someone a decent shop heater, so I would say $250-350 is fair.

Yeah that's probably about it though...would be worth that much to me to leave it installed as a heater in its existing shop...with some clearance/install tweaks as needed...some insulation in the building would make the furnace a lot more effective too...

Installed in a garage like that it would not have passed inspection on sale here.

I have similar type of wood furnace made in Kaukauna WI in my garage (Kaukauna Freedom Furnace) . Works great for heating the garage as the fans move the heat around the garage. That said if my garage burns down due to it, my insurance will not cover the loss. I just run it when I need it and make sure any flammables are sitting outside door. I don't leave it unattended. My guess on yours is that it a bottom grate design, not very efficient but put the heat out.
