It's at least 40 years old. Why does it matter that you're selling the house? Did the previous owner tell you how old it was when you bought it?

I believe it is a Series 6 which was built between 1972 and 1979

I wasn't worried about the age of the bolier when I bought the house. I grew up with hot water heat so i knew what it was all about. Now that Im selling the house people want to no the age of the boiler.

Thanks for the info, but how sure are you. Do you have the same boiler or are you just familiar with american standard boilers. Thanks for all your help.

Having bought and sold a few houses, I would leave it to the prospective buyers, and their home inspectors, to estimate the the age of the boiler - unless you were the owner when the boiler was installed, and know for sure its age.

If you give prospective buyers the boiler's age, based on what somebody says on the internet, you are still responsible for that age estimate. The boiler could have been installed long after it was manufactured - neither you nor we can guess that. When somebody asks the boiler's age, I would tell them you don't know, which I assume is the truth.

Gil's advice is the best... tell them you don't know.
