June, 1998.


Serial Number format: 5896A 36571
(This serial number is from an actual furnace unit transcribed during a home inspection).

Using the third, fourth and fifth digits of the serial number 5896A 36571you will find the year and month of manufacture. The third and fourth digits are the year and the fifth digit is the month expressed in letter format. This unit was manufactured in January, 1996.

Year of manufacture: 5896A 36571
Month of manufacture: 5896A 36571
Use the following chart to determine month.

A = January

B = February

C = March

D = April

E = May

F = June

G = July

H = August

“I” was not used.

J = September

K = October

L = November

M = December

Yep - 1998.

Get a "Prestons Guide" in either book or CD form AND look up major AC and heating dates, etc by model and serial number
