Dating a Burnham boiler


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Had a hot water system yesterday that used a Burnham boiler. I've never seen one of these before - Buderus seems to be popular here though.

I'm wondering if anyone can tell me how Burnham codes the year of manufacture. This unit was a Model PXG-200417-WNI, serial# 01-010070. The ANSI standard cited on the tag was 1983, so I'm guessing it is around 1985 to 1987, which would be consistent with the remodeling done on the home.

I'd appreciate any tips on reading these in the future.

I see a few dozen Burnham boilers annually; I always use the ANSI date & add a couple years. Burnham has maintained a practice of having nearly indecipherable serial # sequence(s), & I got tired of trying to decipher them.

They are a good quality component, albeit old fashioned, technology.
