    Are you sure that's a OHC? What's the serial number?

    OHC and APA are not Arcoaire nomenclature. Please verify info. Serial number may help

    Will have to check into. That sounds like pre- Snyder General Info, possibly back to Friedrich days......

    There was a OHA112A in 1985. Might make sense that it evolved into an OHC112A. Friedrich became Arco around 1983. Looks like jultzya found his info from a Preston book?

    I got this info from a long distance business acquaintance.

    I can take no credit for this one, other then to say I dug a little to see if someone had the answer. I did see some close models on the dealer site, but none that were a true match.

    I know the Mgr. will get to the bottom of this for us. Tks.

    Believe it or not, OHC was before the OHA.

    It was a late 1983/early 1984 model, Horizontal, 114K out, 79% AFUE

    Nothin' really fancy, just your basic horizontal oil furnace.

    Was a Hutchings TX product, so may have been right at about the time of change. Spec sheet does not say. I have a copy if anyone may need it.

    I knew you could do it!

    Kinda funny they rated it on output.

    Nah, they have been done that way forever. Most manufacturers did it that way. Only recently did the ICP thing start with rating it on input.

    Is this rating issue, an oil thing?
