Overview of the YCJD
The York YCJD is a discontinued 13 SEER split system air conditioner available as a single phase or three phase unit. The aluminum microchannel tubing/aluminum fin coil was protected by a stamped steel coil guard and a secondary polymer mesh. A high-pressure relief valve, temperature sensor, and system high pressure switch helped protect the compressor, while a factory installed liquid line filter drier protected the compressor from moisture and debris. A rigid top panel and isolator mounted compressor helped keep operating sound levels low, and the galvanized steel cabinet had a powdercoat finish to protect against rust and corrosion. The YCJD was part of the York LX series.

"Poorly made unit"
Had a York YCJD4254152A 3.5 Ton unit installed in May 2015 and now in August 2016 it has a leaking coil which has to be replaced. I had to pay the service call and will have to pay for labor to have it installed as the 12-month labor warranty has expired. What is wrong with this picture? A 10-year limited parts warranty does little good when the product is faulty so soon after installation and is now discontinued. York needs to reimburse me for my time, trouble and expense to get their unit repaired. Will not buy this brand ever again or recommend it.

The unit is adequate for cooling my area and very efficient on my electric bill. However my unit was installed in March of 2014. And already because of a slow leak in the coil located in the attic that coil needs to be replaced. The part itself is warrantied but I have had to pay for the labor and the cost to replace the Freon! I am now very concerned about the long-term performance of this unit. In reading the customer reviews other owners have experienced this problem and I see the manufacturer has discontinued this model. I would not purchase this brand again.

"Well performing system, no issues."
System was installed a couple of years ago (9/25/2013) to replace an older Payne 5 Ton unit that was having compressor issues and was expensive to run. The installer - Matt O. with Air Service Partners - did great work. He was able to use the existing line set that was buried in concrete, however he replaced the inside evaporator coil due to the fact that we were migrating from R-22 to R-410A. He was also able to use my existing Amana furnace which saved a bundle. We also replaced all of the air grills, and he also re-did the air plenum attaching the top of the furnace which he found constricted. This immensely increased airflow. I also purchased an air conditioning cover from Brinmar to keep the condenser clean during the winter when the unit is not in use. The unit has performed very well during this recent heat wave in Southern California where the temperatures were 109 degrees today. I measured the air exit temperature and it was in excess of 130 degrees, so it was definitely being worked!

"Central Air is the best!"
I have never had any problems with it, I absolutely love our AC! It always keeps the house nice and cold and our energy bill is always reasonable.

"York reviews on 2 A/C units"
I had the 2 1/2 ton installed last year for the 1st floor and asked why it was so loud. I had to turn my TV up louder. This year I had the 4 ton installed and in the smaller bedroom it is so loud, it took me awhile to fall asleep. The old Trane I had for the 1st floor was a 2 ton so I think that is why I notice the loud air flow with the 2 1/2 ton York on the 1st floor, but the 2nd floor I just don't know. I also had to place a service call on both units within a couple months because they were not working. They said sometimes due to packing things need to be replaced?

"New A/C unit"
Had a new York 3 ton condenser installed. I had a problem with it. The contractor (Mark at conditioned air) told the York rep that he thought it had a restriction in it. He was told to check the air handler TX valve, which he did. During the process of rewelding, threads got out of round and could not connect. Bought a new air handler but still had the same problem. A York rep came from Tampa, said the restriction was in the unit and got another. It is working excellent. Nobody's fault, Murphy's law - very happy now!

Paid $5,000 for the York in June, 2011. In 2014 we had service men every two months until they admitted that the Made-in-Mexico coil leaked and had been presenting problems ever since 2008. New coil was installed. Saturday, June 27, 2015 had no AC but a bill for an after hours service man to tell us there was no way he could jump start the compressor and get us through Florida 92 degree heat until the part could be found from a distributor in the area and installed. York would not overnight the part. Had to wait four days for distributor delivery. The installation is a two-man, five-hour job. We fully expect the air handler to also die within the next year and a half.

"2 Years Old and Working Great"
This hvac system was installed 2 years ago by Anthony Heating & Plumbing, in our Kansas City House (+4,000 sq. Ft) to replace the 20+ year old original unit. We also have mutli-zone damper control installed with the hvac System replacement as well. In any case, first, I have no allegiance to York or any other hvac Mfr. But what I will say is that the system has performed flawlessly. Before, on KCMO's 95+ degree days it would average 79 - 82 in our master suite and that was the coolest it would get until around 4 am. Well no more, the system easily keeps the 2nd floor at a brisk 68 degrees. Now I don't know how long that will last, but I sure hope a long time. I am pleased with our York, and the company (Anthony's Heating and Plumbing in Kansas City) that installed it. Thx! Btw, I will re-review them the first moment I have any trouble. Keep ya posted.
