    Question Age of AC unit

    I am trying to find out how old my GE a/c heating unit is. The model no. is BTR060A300A1 and the serial no. is 260578935 My house was build in 1954. Could this be the original system?

    Thanks

    From the first four of serial number - 2605, the manufacturing day seems like week no. 26, year 2005. If it looks very old, please call GE 1-800-626-2005 to confirm.

    It looks like the picture John Arnold sent me. I know it was not made in 2005 because we have lived in this house 15 years and it was here when we purchased the home. Thanks for the GE number I will call and ask them.

    5 ton unit.

    Call GE.

    If its been there for the last 15 years and you run it hard and it finally died, I would say it had a good life.

    Replace, move on.

    Meredith,

    If that condensing unit is 15 yrs. old, retire that sucker. Its not worth putting a dollar into. Your actually spending more money to operate it than the new units.

    Bite the bullet, and update your HVAC system. Plus you can get a tax credit.
