Note: Before you dive into the specific brand review, we highly recommend you to read our elaborate Gas Furnace Buying Guide in advance. There are several crucial steps you need to take before you even start to think about the brand.

York is a brand of furnace marketed by York International Corporation. Originally founded in 1874 in York, Pennsylvania, the company originally manufactured ice machines and eventually transitioned to air conditioning.

York’s lineup of gas furnaces span across four series—Affinity, LX, Latitude, and Diamond—and includes single-stage, two-stage and variable speed models, compact in size. Affinity is the companies top line of furnaces and its highest efficiency model is recognized as one of the best on the market today with an AFUE rating of up to 98%. This rating compares to the 98.3% of the top Bryant gas furnace and is one of the highest available for a gas furnace. A York gas furnace will cost more, however, but for those looking to pay for a brand on the premium side, York is as reputable and reliable as they come. Here is  the quick navigation of this guide:

York’s Features

ClimaTrak Comfort System

York’s patented ClimaTrak technology allows for your York dealer to customize and set the motor in your furnace to work best in your current climate. This means that your furnace will be best suited for your own home. Whether you live in a humid climate, temperate or dry environment, the ClimaTrak Comfort System will ensure your furnace’s operating cycle is tailored to your liking and meets your home’s specific needs, wherever that may be. This also means that the Affinity series furnaces can provide sufficient heating in homes located just about anywhere.

Variable Speed Fan

Available in York’s high-efficient Affinity series is the use of an electronically commutated motor (ECM) that allows for the fan to change speeds gradually based on the heating demand. Unlike standard blower motors, the ECM works in tandem with York’s ClimaTrak Comfort System to better control humidity and keep noise to a minimum while also being incredibly energy efficient.

Modulating Burner Design

Like the ECM variable speed fan found in the Affinity series, York’s modulating burner design allows for continuous adjustments in the level of heat you need. These small increments help to better match your level of comfort and provide the perfect temperature for your home. Highly customizable, this design means you won’t need to constantly be adjusting your temperature to in your home—it will always be just right, the way you want it.

    • There are a lot of other factors that go into determining btu ratings. Basement 2-3 stories, what percentage of furnace do you want. A 90% is more efficient than an 80% and requires less btu’s to do the job.
