Reviews by Central Air Conditioner Series

LX Champion Affinity YCJF YCJD Sunline Plus GCGD

Most of York’s products have received an Energy Star and a Good Housekeeping Seal.


The two Latitude air conditioners have SEERs of 13 and 14.5. TCGF, the higher efficiency of the two, is also part of their “Ultra quiet” units. These air conditioners have earned EnergyStar efficiency ratings according to government standards.

All of York’s air conditioners, including those in the Latitude series, (TCDG and TCGF) use R-410A Refrigerant. This is a more environmentally friendly form of coolant than R-22, which was in use previously. Specifically, R-410A is free of ozone-destroying chlorofluorocarbons.

The two air conditioners in this series also have SEERs of 13 and 14.5. In addition to the features of the Latitude models, they include aluminum MicroChannel coil. They also use more sophisticated compressor and fan parts, which require less maintenance.

The LX air conditioners add coil protection between the grill and the condenser. They also use a different cabinet design. The YCJF model can be matched with a variable speed blower (the default has only one speed) to bring its SEER rating above 16. The YCJD is not capable of that.


The Affinity series is York’s best air conditioner. There are four models in the series. The models here that have lower SEER ratings compensate with other features. The following links will allow you to learn more about the Affinity 9v and the Affinity 8v.

The Affinity TCHD is similar to the LX and has a SEER of 13. Its distinguishing feature is its size: it provides the same efficiency while having a physically compact form. These units can be fit into small spaces or even stacked. The clearance is 6″.

The CZB is also 13 SEER, but operates especially quietly due to a special fan design. It also uses the QuietDrive® system, which involves the fan and the compressor.

The CZF has a SEER of 16. It brings to the table a ComfortAlert® system, which provides a compressor monitor to the homeowner.

The most sophisticated model, the CZH, has a SEER of 18. It also employs the quieting technology described above. It comes in seven different colors! The exterior uses powder-coated paint and sealed electrical connections to improve durability.

It also uses a two-stage compressor, which means it can operate at different speeds at different times. On a day that’s not especially hot, it doesn’t have to cool air at full blast. This feature contributes to its high energy efficiency.

Care and Maintenance

It’s highly advisable to have air conditioners checked and inspected in the spring and fall, every year. This will ensure a system’s functional properly and ideally avert poor performance issues.


Most of these products come with ten-year parts and ten-year compressor warranties. Additional coverage can be purchased under the YorkCare® Comfort Plan.

The Affinity TCHD, the small one, doesn’t qualify for the basic warranty. It comes with a one-year warranty on its parts and a five-year warranty for its compressor.

"York air conditioning"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

I am very dissatisfied with York. I have spent as much money on repairs as the purchase price. I Had maintains done in January this year, and service3 times since then for no air. This is ridiculous during this heat of index of 105 days after day and can't get Service for 3-4 days, then out pocket hotel plus repairs.

"York AC Unit Sucks"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

2 York AC/Heat Pump Units installed at the new home in 2013. 2015 the blower motor went out on the downstairs unit. Parts covered but not labor, $250 in expense. 2018 upstairs unit is leaking Freon. The warranty has expired on both units. There are no quality York products! 5 years old and its leaking freon at a rate of 3#'s per year. Now its find the leak and repair or replace the unit, all at my cost. Stay away from york! Complete Garbage!

"Stay away"

Very Unsatisfied

Ac guy recommended this unit, did not work when installed both AC/Heat unit failed within months of each other. I sent a message to york and never got a response to the issue, they replaced the a/c unit a couple of months later but my Electric bill has doubled since I had this unit installed. It makes a very loud noise with coming on and off and per the local dealer that is normal for york, they actually told me they normally try not to sell YORK…if you have a choice do not buy this product.

"14 Years of Cool and more"

5.0 rating
Very Satisfied

I have had a two-stage York Affinity in my home for over 14 years so far – love two-stage comfort and great utility bills. The variable speed blower makes the system extra quiet, too. I especially like the fact that these products are built in the United States! I have had York products in my house since 1982, and since I have sold them since then, I know quite a bit about them, their heritage, and why my family and friends use York products too.

"Extremely unsatisfied"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

I purchased this unit a year and a half ago and it's not working. It had a leak and the coils froze and have to be replaced, and they have to find the leak. The warranty covers parts, but not labor, and it's going to cost me at least $750.00 to fix it. I wish I'd read these reviews before I bought it because I would have got a different brand. Now I'm stuck with it.
