    Hi all!
    Well I'm trying to figure out how old my OLD Utica Boiler really is. My older Brother is saying 40+. I have Pix of the unit. I know that it is a model 04. Someone has sprayed white paint on the name plate, it's hard to read. I can't find any date or serail numbers! Are there any? Were to find them?

    Many thanks, Ted

    I'm not a Utica guy but I think your brother is close. I do know if you are looking to cut down on oil this isn't the boiler to do it with. If there is a tag left behind from when the service company serviced it (an efficiency tag) if the gross stack temp is over 450 degrees you have a large loss of heat up the chimney.

    Your brother is in range with his guess.

    On a new system that 550 will be replaced by anything from 350 to 450 depending on what you get. The 550 is too high in this day and age.
