Sears Furnace Age Help

Model # 867.769213
Serial # H637 10445

High Efficiency model made by Central Furnace

My Preston’s Guide does not show a Sears Model # of 867.76213. Could the last number be 76223 or 76233?

I missed a number 867.769213

Looks to be about 1986-1987



Thanks Gerry

There are four clues there that need to be used to tie things together:

  1. Sears
  2. H6 in the serial number
  3. High efficiency
  4. Central Furnace

If all four of those are correct, then it looks to be an August 1996 model. Taking any one clue by itself could result in erroneous dating.

Thank you Russel where did you get this technical information so I dont have to keep asking for help.

They like to keep it secret to stay useful Rick.

Hey, Rick.

I had a heating and cooling company back in Houston many years ago – alright, you caught me – many decades ago.

Age – and history – have always intrigued me, so I started keeping records lo those many years ago. I have a huge database of information about date codes on heating and cooling equipment – as well as water heaters. I keep adding to it daily – since I do daily home inspections. :slight_smile:

I’ve thought about publishing it, but that takes time to put everything together in a user friendly format with a CD for easy searches, not something that I have time for right now. I realize that it’s valuable and has a cash value associated with it, so it’s not something that I’m going to make available to the masses.

I used to contribute a lot over here at NACHI but have chosen ActiveRain for my main online playground now.

There’s even a subsidiary of ActiveRain called Localism where you can post helpful information about you and your company, and your expertise, to cities and even neighborhoods in your service area. Very powerful.

Come on over and Play in the Rain some each day and you can vastly increase your online presence without the need to try to play the SEO game with tags, metatags, click throughs, etc. You can even post information from ActiveRain to your own web site.

Best wishes to everyone for health, happiness, peace, and prosperity! And remember, you won’t get “all wet” or “catch a cold” by Playing in the Rain. So this is one time that can ignore your wise old grandmother’s words of wisdom.
