How can I tell the age of an Airquest air conditioner, heat pump, or furnace from the serial number?
Thursday, April 4, 2019
The first two numbers, after a single letter, in the serial number are the year of manufacture of the unit. So the data plate below indicates that the condenser was manufactured in 1993.
Airquest is aHVAC line of HVAC products that was manufactured by Inter-City Products until 1999, when the company was acquired by International Comfort Products (ICP). Some versions of the serial number may be missing the initial letter at the beginning and, in that case, the year of manufacture is the 3rd and 4th numbers.
