My name is ***** *****. I just bought a home with a boiler

Customer Question

Customer: My name is ***** *****. I just bought a home with a boiler and want to know more about it. The Model # ***** ***** W 5 2 and the serial is 50 33 87. What year is this boiler? I wrote the numbers as they appeared on the side of the unit. Do you think you can help?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: Nothing is wrong, the unit is working fine as far as I can tell. It just looks pretty old.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question to HVAC Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. Are you willing to wait a bit?
Customer: Yes, I can wait and will accept the charges as per your comment above.
JA: OK. Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

Can you provide a brand for this boiler? Serial number makes me think this is a really old boiler. Can you post a couple pictures here of the boiler? Click on ADD FILES next to the SEND button to post pics here
