Comments on HVAC-Talk message boards and heating contractor sites are undecided about the York Affinity series furnaces:
- In this hvac-talk.com forum, a few posters believe York Affinity is better than Trane; heat by the former is quite effective when it is produced. The problem, however, is that the ignition is inconsistent and undependable. One tech disagrees, stating that York Affinity's reputation shows the series has its merits.
- In another hvac-talk.com forum, a writer HVAC mentions that York's lack of quality is due to poor cabinet construction and a troublesome condenser that renders repair and maintenance difficult. Another tech, though, claims that York doesn't match up to more prominent brands, such as Lennox and Trane.
The airflow of the York Affinity 8.v Furnace can be adjusted for personal comfort depending on where the unit is placed within the home. Models within the same or similar series are distinguished by a common BTUh capacity of air flow:
