How to determine the age of your heating system and components. Here we provide several excellent sources for de-coding the data tag information on heating equipment. This article provides documents that explain and translate all of the data found on information tags and stickers used on heating & heat pump equipment, including equipment age, heating capacity, electrical requirements, and operating characteristics. We also provide an ARTICLE INDEX for this topic, or you can try the page top or bottom SEARCH BOX as a quick way to find information you need. If you don't know whether your heat is provided by a furnace (hot air) or boiler (hot water), or whether your fuel is oil, gas, or electric, and whether your heat is hot water, steam, or warm air, see HEATING SYSTEM TYPES. Then return to this page for help finding the equipment's age or date of manufacture. Our photo shows data tags on a Weil McLain gas fired heating boiler that was manufactured on 10/10/1996. [Click to enlarge any image]. We found the boiler age by de-coding the boiler's CP/serial number code on the white sticker just above the data tag. Below we explain how we did that. For help in decoding air conditioner, boiler, furnace, heat pump, water heater data tags and determining the age, model, or specifications of that equipment, we provide five different research methods listed below.
