Envirotemp water heaters are produced by American Water Heaters - you can contact them at americanwaterheater.com to ask for a copy of the warranty for your unit. Your unit was made in the 14th week of 2002.

The year is encoded in the first two digits of the serial number.

Query: (Mar 29, 2013) Anonymous said: how old is an Envi-ro-temp water heater
Model#mhe2e30hs035v Serial # 9812126163 Product# 0820183 Thank you, Cheryl Satterwhite

The year of manufacture of your particular Enviro-Temp water heater is encoded in the first two digits or 1998. Details:

If we assume that your Envi-ro-temp water heater is an Envirotron product I can give this information from CDA's technical reference cited in our References section:

Envirotron went out of business around 1980 - which would your heater at least 33 years old. The current incarnation of the Envirotron name is a company that provides "green technology education and resources" and has their own website with that name.

There is also Solatherm-Envirotron, 1983
Solar Hot Water System for a Newspaper Building: Final Report
Solatherm Envirotron, 1981 [book about 151 pages)
This company published a number of solar water heater studies and documents.

Also see products manufactured under the name Atlascare Tel: 905-829-1296.

Is your water heater a solar unit?

In any event, because the year of manufacture was typically coded in the first two digits, from the serial number serial # 9812126163 I would bet your heater was made in year 98, month 12, or December 1998.

Use the CONTACT US link at page top or bottom to send me some photos of the heater and closeups of its labels and I can research further.
