How can tell the age of a Daikin air conditioner from the serial number?
Saturday, July 7, 2018
The first two numbers of the serial number are the year of manufacture for a Daikin air conditioner or heat pump, so the serial number shown below indicates the unit was manufactured in 2015.
Some units will have the date of manufacture clearly marked in a box on the data plate marked “Mfg. Date,” and the serial number will not be encoded with the manufacture date.
