General Electric
Capacity: Last three digits of model number indicate approximate rating in 1000s of Btus
Example: 21TC030A = 2.5 ton
Age: Last three digits of serial number indicate date of manufacture, where the first digit indicates the year and the second and third indicate the week
Example: xxxxxx241 = 41st week of 1982

Hi Buck,

Prestons doesn't list that model, however that type of model # (BGTA???) was typical of those sold in the 1970's

Regards

Gerry

Pick one: 1961, 1971, 1981, 1991, or 2001. If I were picking, I'd pick 1971.
