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

How old is the home the boiler is in?

Customer: replied 17 days 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 17 days 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.
