This tool can automatically load your local power rate and yearly cooling hours when using Chrome explorer. You can also adjust these inputs manually to get a more accurate result.

What Contractor Say About York AC

As an old brand, York offers a variety of ACs in the market. Consumers often buy directly from York as well as through contractors. The company has manufactured rather cheap yet unfailing solutions for all their customers. York offers good unit as long as the installation process is carried out by someone who perfectly knows what exactly they are doing. The error that most users make is to install a unit on their own. Without the help of a skilled person, the possibility of poor installation is always high. The unit, therefore, begins to have problems too early. Proper installation of any unit is essential if you want an AC to last long enough. Also, the warranty terms of York are reasonable and much favorable as compared to warranties from other brands in the market. This is helpful especially to consumers buying the top notch York’s air conditioners.

$2,850York LX YCJF 4 tonWashington, DC2100 sqft
I am happy with this purchase because after buying a few appliances that kept breaking down I sort of got used to poor quality. York, however, has changed my perception of these brands. If you take your time to do your research on what you want to buy then there is very little chance of being disappointed. Thanks to York my house is comfortable again.
$2,100York Affinity CZHRowlett, TX2000 sqft
It’s surprising how many people are complaining about York air conditioners. I feel bad for them because it must be a problem with the installation. I read about the problems that can be caused by poor installation online and made sure I got someone who could be trusted with the job. It’s 2 years down the line now and nothing is the matter, the ac functions just as well as it did when I bought it.
$2,800CZFFt. Lauderdale, TX3000 sqft
I’ve lived in my house for 25 years now. The old ac had been around for about the same time and had gotten slow over time so I had to replace it. I bought York because my son recommended it to me and so far I like how it works. It is so quiet and does not need to stay on for long to cool the house properly so the utility bill also remains at a reasonable figure.
$4,020York Affinity 15 SEER 4 tonPrattville, AL3350 sqft
I have had my York ac for 2 years now and the unit is still functioning well. I read some reviews about the ac on the internet and there we a lot of people complaining about the company’s quality. Well, I am here to tell you that York makes good HVAC systems and I can vouch for them any day.
$2,090York LXFlorence, AZ2200 sqft
York is a good AC company and my unit is clear indication that they are at the top of their game. This one runs so quietly unlike the one I had before which was too noisy.
$2,780York LX YCJDAiken, SC2100 sqft
The first year was okay but this year we keep having a Freon leak. I wonder if they could send a technician over to have a look at it and fix it once and for good. Other than that the unit was working just fine but know it’s starting to cost me more money than I can spend on it.
$3949York Affinity 3 tonHatfield, PA3200 sqft
The fan motor has broken down just again just 8 months after I bought this piece of junk. The technician that came from the company said that the fans spoil like that all the time. What kind of product is this that you sell customers knowing it has poor quality parts? I would not advise anyone to buy this, it’s a waste of money.

  • We have a York Heating and AC unit, Affinity PC9 that is approx. 12 years old – I’m told we need a blower motor. How can I find out what they cost?

    • Hi

      The average price indoor blower for that is $225-$700 based on with two hours labor. You can get an estimate from our Free Estimate Tool by choosing AC repair option.

      You would better choose a variable stage blower motor.

  • I have 1340 sq ft. of Townhouse, technician says the the accumulator in my AC unit manufactured by York is rusted and needs to be changed. Can someone give me a rough idea how much it will cost me to replace that particular accumulator or change the whole outside unit

    • As long as it’s not leaking, there is no reason to change it if it is rusted. I’m in New York and everything Rust’s here with no issues. It sounds like your contactor is trying to make some extra money.

  • I have had a York Affinity 2 speed in my house for 4 years and have not had any trouble with it at all, I would recommend the brand to anyone and would buy another.

  • I am contractor looking for a motor for the york with model number YMUFYH048BAN-68,

  • Hello,

    I am writing from Mexico City, I am interested to buy an AC York package the model is ZF240C00B2, please let me know if you can give a quotation of this equipment, I know that in Mexico there are some dealers but unfortunately the delivery time is too long, that is the reason I am looking for a dealer in Dallas, My company has a factory on Dallas texas and we can import materials from USA, so for this case there are no problem in the import process, in the case of the installation we have an expert who can install all the equipment.

    Thank you
