Something that may help many of you to figure out the dates on a lot of equipment is the A.N.S.I. date, if there is one. More often than not there is an ansi date on heating and cooling equip. and on water heaters. ANSI is the organization that writes the standards the equipment must live up to. They modify these standards every five years…If the ansi date is 1980, that means the equip. you are looking at was manufactured between 1980 & 1985… So if you are not sure about what your getting from the serial #, cross check with the ansi. date.
Those that say it cannot be done should stop interupting those of us who are hard at work, doing it…
