Lennon bought Ducane in 1999. My guess on the HP is 1990. No idea on the air handler. My 2 cents......

Ho to all,

Todd, Prestons list it (yeah really) as a 1999 or 2000 model.

Well, I just got off the phone with a Ducane warranty person and the unit was built in the 16th week of 2005.
Go figure.
There are actually 3 sets of codes and it depends on the # of digits in the serial # and if the 5th digit is a letter A-G.

If it's 10 digits and all #s then the last 4 are where the manufacture date comes from.

Anyway, they said they would email a copy of their serial # chart's for all products as soon as the boss gets back....

Thanks guys,


This has been a great day!!!!

I just pulled my Preston's out of the bottom of the closet and if Ducane sends me proof that preston's is wrong it will be going somewere besides the closet.

I actually hope Preston's is right, that damn thing was spendy!!

Has anyone ever found preston's to have the wrong information?

This is all they sent better than nothing I suppose and it seems to show that prestons does have some missinformation.

Keep in mind that Preston's is a printed guide. That means that it could be out of date or contain incorrect information on the day that it is submitted to the printer. Happens all the time. That's why it's important to know all your resources and to use them wisely. NACHI.org is one of those resources.

That's exactly why we all post these little snippets of info as we come across them.

Hi to all,

A better question would be has anyone ever found prestons to be correct? 1/2 the time I look for somthing it is not there, Also having spent $200 on both the CD (hopeless not even windows compliant) and the book (inaccurate) I will not be spending a penny of any further materials from them.

As RR would say, they suck!

Regards

Gerry
