After another failure with the Lennox / Frigidaire combo, I opted to upgrade to a York compressor and coils with the new refrigerant. For less than $4000, my house feels comfortable set at 80 degrees during the day and 78 at night. I'm hoping my next electric bill might be a little less as well.

I purchased an entirely new system, inside and outside units because of the age and issues with the original system. The contractor offered this system with a 10 year warranty, parts and labor but now I am seeing that isn't the case. I hope the system does not break down as I am disabled.

"The Best Air Conditioner Product"
I bought this product last year. It is 1.5 tons and has a 10-year warranty. This product's efficiency is 16.5 SEER, probably more than average efficiency. This air conditioner also has an Energy Star label, which means this product is 25% more efficient than any other brand based on EPA and DOE guidelines. What I really like about it is its microchannel coil. These microchannel coil lets the product use less space. Therefore it is pretty much smaller than other products whose cooling effect is as efficient as this product. Since last year, I never had any problem with it nor needed a replacement for parts or any trouble at all. Simply amazing. I have nothing to dislike about this product, I mean, I like all its features. Compared to other brands, the overall satisfaction and quality of this product is much better. That is why it has the Good Housekeeping Seal as a symbol of its earned trust and high quality for the past century. I would definitely recommend it to others who are planning to buy an air conditioner.

We have recently started installing Champion/York equipment. All made by Johnson Controls. When a person chooses to install equipment, they should look at who is installing it. Cheaper is not always better, and you get what you pay for in terms of the install crew. We can install any system and have the same issues with any of them. The most important day in the life of any system is the day of installation. So if you pay for a guy with a van or truck that has a sign on it, that is the work you get. If everyone would read their insurance policy you would know that you need to hire someone who is licensed and bonded. If not and something happens to your house, it's your problem, not theirs. York/Champion/Luxaire all this equipment is good. You might just want to look at your installer.

"Junk, Junk, Junk"
Haven't had a good night's sleep in 3 weeks due to hot weather and no AC. Brand new unit at $7000.00. installed by a dealer 3 weeks ago and it hasn't worked since install. Same size unit as the old one, but the manufacturer says that the house needs to be modified with bigger duct work. The old one worked great, the new one doesn't, it's the same size so let's lie to the owner about selling junk and not fix the problem. If this company has no more common sense than that, they need to close their doors and go out of business.

Had this a YCJF 14.5 SEER unit installed in my house last Saturday. Love it, it's quiet and uses 6 amps less than our old unit!

So far I'm satisfied with the cooling but only had it installed in May & we are in the middle of June. I could give you better answers after August.

"Own dealers won't provide service"
Bought an entire matched system - outdoor 2.5 ton, 80k/95% AFUE - to get 16 SEER, and I called their local dealer to do the install. They won't even return my calls. When I emailed York about this, there was no reply. Pretty much you're on your own - you didn't buy the units from us, so we're not going to install them. Still looking for an independent to install so I can't rate their equipment yet.

"York outdoor unit, model number YCJF42S41S1"
This York A/C LX series was installed in 2010. The first two years were great. Quiet unit. Could really tell the difference. By July 2014, something wasn't right. It wasn't cooling. The ofm was bad. The warranty covered the parts but I had to pay a warranty handling fee. Are you kidding? Now here we are April, 2015, and during my A/C check the coolant was really really low. There's a leak somewhere. The worst purchase I ever made was this York. I am so disappointed in this product. I will never by a York again. I have a feeling we are going to have to eat the cost of this one, though it's not 5 years old yet, and get something else.
