"Class Action Suit – York Product"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

You will notice when you read the reviews that the 5 stars are from people who recently purchased a unit. Yes, the furnace works great in the beginning. When you get into year 7, the problems begin. I bought a York furnace 9 years ago and have had multiple expensive issues since that time. The latest repair was $3,000. On Thursday, I am looking at other companies to completely replace it. Too bad that I am still paying on it and will be for another 5 years. I am also part of the class action suit against York.

"Learn From Our Misfortune"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

We bought a new York Affinity furnace and AC for a new house, and it broke almost immediately. We have owned it 8 years now, and have had over 6 service calls on it for faulty parts and breakdowns. The company covered some of the faulty parts, but not the cost of service which has totaled over $1900. so far, and we just had another fuel switch breakdown this weekend and needed another service call. We finally bought a service contract with the Rochester, NY heating business to cover all of these service calls – and of course we have to pay for the service contract. Also, we just received a letter about a Class Action suit against York because of all the faulty furnace and AC units. Do not buy a York furnace or air conditioner!

"So sad. Why don’t they just sell us an upgrade package to replace the faulty parts?"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

It worked great for two years. The burner and mother board were replaced under warranty in the third year. I have had seven HVAC people come from three different companies. Some multiple times. All I want is heat. Why don’t you sell a patch or repair upgrade? I am not rich. I cannot afford a new system. It gets cold in the winter. Don’t you care? Why not become “The furnace people with a warm heart”?

"No heat furnace"

Furnace was installed new in June of 2013 and has broken down twice. Annual maintenance was done 3 months ago but the first time it’s turned on it doesn’t work. I will never buy a York product again.

Very Satisfied

This is a very quiet furnace. The fan blows most of the time, but I never hear it. It is also very efficient. I would certainly by another York furnace.
