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.

Brand & Model & Size
|$2,850||York LX YCJF 4 ton||Washington, DC||2100 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.|
|$2,100||York Affinity CZH||Rowlett, TX||2000 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.|
|$2,800||CZF||Ft. Lauderdale, TX||3000 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.|
|$4,020||York Affinity 15 SEER 4 ton||Prattville, AL||3350 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.|
|$2,090||York LX||Florence, AZ||2200 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.|
|$2,780||York LX YCJD||Aiken, SC||2100 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.|
|$3949||York Affinity 3 ton||Hatfield, PA||3200 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.|
