The furnace must be operating and providing heat to the home, and the primary heat source in the home.
The contest applies to standard natural gas, forced air ducted heating systems. No Boilers, radiant systems, wood-burning or pellet stoves qualify. Nor any other types of heating equipment.

For entry to be valid, representatives from Brown's Heating & Cooling must be allowed access to the furnace and duct system to examine the installation and record manufacturer nameplate information (model & serial numbers and dates).
The Oldest Working Furnace Contest is not a game of chance. The winner will be the oldest furnace submitted according to objective information such as model & serial numbers, installation or sale paperwork provided by the homeowner and/or the best judgment of Brown's Heating & Cooling employees.
In the event of a tie, the earliest contest entrant shall be the winner.
All decisions are final.

The winning entry will receive one (1) new gas two-stage high-efficiency Rheem furnace, as well as complete normal installation. (See above for exclusions.)
