The “R” stands for residential and the “A” means its an upflow unit. The “C” at the end of the Model number tells you its made in the US/Canada. THE “KG” tells you it is Gas and is an 80% (+) efficient unit.
The serial number would tell the age, but I don't see enough Gibsons (1 or 2 max p/year) to be really familiar with reading the s/n. But if I remember correctly, I think it would be 1-3 years old.

I have the Carson Dunlop Technical Reference Guide. Gibson does not show up. You can google onto the data sheet for that unit but it does not decode the age. The nordyne.com site points questions in your area to Charles D Jones Co. at 417-206-6223.

I’m brand new to NACHI, but have been watching your posts for a couple of months now. It’s awsome to learn from some of the best in the Inspection Industry! Thanks.
I came a cross a Heil (N. Gas Heat) unit today and have not ben able to find a cross reference for the Model and/or Serial no.-- Mod. NUG 5075BFB1 and Ser. L933221238. According to the homeowner the unit is supposed to be approx. 5 years old. Does anyone recognize Heil's code?
Thanks in advance!
