How do I tell the age of a GE water heater from the serial number?
Tuesday, September 11, 2018
GE water heaters are manufactured by Rheem and use their date coding system, which is that the third and fourth numbers (after several letters) in the serial number are the year of manufacture. So the manufacturer’s data plate below indicates that the water heater was made in 2001.
To determine the age of another manufacturer/brand of water heater, go to How do I determine the age of my water heater?
To find the age of other home components, go to How can I find out the age of a roof? and How do I determine the age of an electrical panel? and How do I determine the age of my air conditioner? For life expectancies, visit What is the average life expectancy of the components of a house?
