What Is The Age Of The Water Heater?
Water heater manufacturers often sell their products under several brand names. These manufacturers include a rating plate or rating sticker on every water heater which identifies the date it was manufactured, the model and serial number of the appliance as well as the gallon size and energy source, such as gas or electricity. It is typically located on the front of the water heater, and older models often have a metal rating plate, while newer water heaters have a sticker with this important information.
Rheem, A.O. Smith, Bradford White, American Standard and other manufacturers, all use a slightly different coding system to identify the manufacturing date, model and serial number. Below, you will find links to some of the major manufacturers and how to read their rating plate information.
This information is especially important when it comes to the sale or purchase of a home for the homeowner or home buyer. Knowing that the water heater may be old, is critical when deciding whether to replace or include this information in the sale of a home. A new buyer will also be especially interested in knowing about their water heater, since a water heater repair or new water heater can be a cost they are not anticipating, and you can help them avoid this unforeseen expenditure. Water Heater Model & Serial Numbers and What They Mean Most serial numbers contain the age (manufacture date) of the water heater in the first four or five digits; however, some use a letter system and others have the first two letters representing the year it was manufactured. Others even have the first two numbers represent the month it was made. It can be frustrating, as some manufacturers don’t use the same system for their own varied water heater brands. Because of this, we are here to help, 24/7/365 in determining the age of the client’s water heater as well as the manufacturing information for you in one simple call.
