How can I tell the age of a Kelvinator air conditioner or furnace from the serial number?
Tuesday, July 17, 2018
The fourth and fifth digits of the serial number are the year of manufacture. The data plate below indicates that the unit was manufactured in 2010. For the age of another brand or manufacturer, go to our blog post How do I determine the age of my air conditioner?
To determine the size of your Kelvinator system, go to What size in tons is my Kelvinator heat pump or air conditioner? Also, see our blog posts How can I find out the SEER of my air conditioner? and Why is my air conditioner not cooling enough?
And to figure out what all the other numbers listed on the condenser data plate mean, go to our blog post How do I understand the air conditioner or heat pump condenser label (data plate)?
