It appears to be a 23-24 yr unit+.

How old is the home the boiler is in?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
24 years old - can you tell me how you found that info? It's my house and I bought it at 3 years old. We can't remember replacing furnace and we are bad w paper work, but have had work done on it many times. Expensive work and thought maybe replaced, but I guess not. We are moving and want to be able to inform prospective buyers.
Expert:  BillyHvac replied 2 months ago.

The era of this unit was based on series number and not serial.

The series of C593KR

March 5th 1993

We usually deem the lifespan of a system at 15-20 years. Boilers we commonly let go longer as the install is more involved and pricey.

Do you know off hand the price of a unit like this to replace?
