York Furnace Identification p3usd16n14001b

Hello-

Can anyone provide me some information about this York furnace? p3usd16n14001b

Efficiency?

Original Blower Motor HP? (The current motor was swapped out but I am unsure if it is over kill (1hp)

Year available? (trying to determin overall age, should I just replace? or upgrade). The system has an intermittent pilot, it works fine and is clean. Just want, to improve the blower motor efficiency.

Thanks

York Serial Numbers

Ok, My furnace is 24 years old, now my question is, Is this unit Old? Would you replace it? Everything looks good internally? I have the appropriate temperature rise, the burners all are clean, the intermediate pilot works. I am just looking for a reduction in the blower operating costs.

If it works and your only concern is blower op costs then no. However, I would not put ANY money into current furnace due to age.
