I’m trying to confirm the manufacturer date on a condensing unit. The data plate says it’s a ThermalZone condensing unit model#CA36K-1T, serial #CA3000250254. The nomenclature does not match what is listed on BIC website nor does it match what I’ve found here in other threads. Interestingly, the model number matches a Goodman unit, but the serial number doesn’t match the Goodman nomenclature either.
I’m leaning towards the 54th week of 2000 based on other information I have found on the net, but I’m not sure.
It has R-22 refrigerant from factory. It also has been spray painted to shit, which means it’s old/rusted. Who cares about the age. If it works at time of inspection tell them they should budget for replacement due to R-22 phaseout and end of expected service life. End of story
