Overview of the LX

The York LX Heat Pump series offers three different models of heat pumps: the YHJF, YHJD and YHJR. The heat pumps are ENERGY STAR qualified, and are equipped with Demand Defrost functions designed for optimum endurance in the coldest weather.

With SEER ratings of 14.5 and HSPF ratings of 8.5, the York LX Series YHJF heat pump offers all weather performance. Promoted as a more cost-efficient model, the York LX Series YHJD heat pump has 13 SEER and 7.7 HSPF. The York LX Series YHJR heat pump offers high efficiency ratings at an affordable rate; the ratings awarded to this model are the same as the ones of the York LX Series YHJD. All three heat pumps use R-410A refrigerant.

"York heat pump with air handler"
This equipment is quiet, efficient and reasonably priced. We are very happy, especially with temperatures in July near 100 degrees. It is doing a great job. I would definitely buy this brand again.

"Installation of York equipment"
Guardian Contracting, LLC (dba: Tyler's Heating & Air) - They spent the time to educate me on the HVAC systems and what the differences were on three different packages, what they termed: good, better & best. I was then able to make an educated decision on what worked best for my situation. I went with the Comfort Plan that gives me 10 Years Parts & 10 Years Labor on the York equipment. I went with the better package which was actually the YHJF30S4S1.

"Very satisfied York customer"
We are George Brazil customers. Although their services cost a bit more than some other contractors, we have been very satisfied with the professionalism of all employees who have been to our home. We were aware that our units were old and needed to be replaced. For example, the upstairs unit would cut on, run for 10 seconds, then cut off - several times a day, and the downstairs unit was not completely cooling or heating before cutting off. We had been visited by a George Brazil representative in the summer. He returned in the fall to re-examine our units. We wanted to replace our units before they failed. Being proactive gave us the flexibility to choose the month (November), which is a benefit to having workers in our attic when it is a temperature not in the triple digits. Our home had Chas Roberts units, which had been efficient when they were new. At 15 years old in the Phoenix heat, they were no longer efficient. The George Brazil representative described different units available through their company and the different pros and cons of each. We had not had York products before and were uncertain, so we asked several questions before deciding on the units. The units were installed three days after purchasing them. The installers were professional and efficient. One gentleman worked in the attic while the other worked on the outside units. Runners were placed inside the front door and up the stairs to keep the flooring clean. When they were done, they vacuumed inside and removed all debris outside. The weather was pleasant after installation, so we did not need to run our units for a few weeks. When we did need them, we couldn't tell they were on because they have been quiet. Furthermore, programming them has been much easier than with our prior units.

"Excellent system"
We have had this system a little over a year. It is excellent and keeps an even temperature throughout the house. We love the 2-way airflow for efficiency; our electric bills have been lowered as a result.

"York sucks"
Bought a York Latitude LX heat pump and air handler unit in 2009. 1 year later, the fan condenser motor failed and was replaced under warranty (parts and labor). On July 26, 2015, the compressor failed due to a bad relay (part covered) and cost $945 to fix. The entire system installed was right at 5k. 6 years later the 2 most major components have failed. York is a piece of shit and I would never recommend them to anyone.

"Cypress Breeze guesthouse"
We rent out property on VRBO.com. The old equipment was over 12 years old. Clif Miculka and Miculka Mechanical have done work for us on another property we own and we have always been pleased with their service and their knowledge and experience in the HVAC industry. Clif had come out to service the old unit several times at the beginning of a hot South Texas summer and he cautioned us that it might not make it through the hot part of the summer. We chose to be proactive and get it done before we had any unhappy renters. We got 3 bids and thankfully, his was in line or lower than the others, because we wanted to use him for the new installation if at all reasonably possible.

"I buy what I sell"
I am a York dealer and when I replaced my HVAC system that came with my new home in 2002 I replaced it with a York system. I have been a York dealer for over 5 years and all my customers have been satisfied with York. I got into the service industry in 1987 fixing appliances and HVAC, and over the years as a service tech I noticed York was not a brand I had to work on often, and when I did the equipment had some age on it. It was a good sign, and that's why I sell York. Good stuff! My new system is much quieter than the old one, and I got a high capacity system, too. The contractor who built the house put in a system that was too small and it couldn't keep up on really hot or cold days. It also only lasted 13 years and I had to fix problems with it several times over the years. Of the systems I have changed out over the past 5 years and replaced with York, I have only had a couple of problems. They were quickly resolved and everyone was happy. I can't think of any dislikes about the York products and as far as the contractor goes...I am the contractor. And yes, I would buy the same brand again and intend to keep selling York too. I'm happy and so are my customers.

"Efficient and quiet unit at a good price"
We got a 3 ton YCJD unit with matching variable speed air handler. We have been extremely satisfied with this unit. It uses much less energy then our old unit and runs very quietly. A little over a year and we haven't had the first problem. I would highly recommend the LX series unit. It was a great price and has been a great unit for us.

"Two breakdowns in first year"
York cannot seem to find a TX valve that works. The valve, made by Johnson Controls, regulates the anti-freeze flow but they had problems with sticking, which is serious because it stresses the compressor and of course gives you no heat (although you're burning through electricity because the system still runs). So my system broke down around Christmas (2014) and it took York 3 weeks to send out a new valve. It is now end of March (2015) and the same issue again. And this is a brand new unit. I could never recommend such a poor piece of equipment because, even though when it runs it is good, these repeated breakdowns are not acceptable on a brand new piece of equipment.

"York heat pump"
The York heat pump and new air handler have operated over the last year with no problems or issues. The main point is that the new system has performed as advertised and we have reduced our heating energy costs in the first year of use by approximately 35%-45%. It is one of the best investments we have made in the house. One point, we are all electric with no option for a gas system.

"JUNK!!!!!!!!"
Junk do not buy!!!! After one year, compressor failure, they do have a 10 year parts warranty, but does not include labor, that was $850 bucks plus $135 for Freon. Will not replace unit only parts. It would have been cheaper to replace outdoor heat pump vs. Fixing it. Thanks York, you suck!

"POS"
I had a York 3.5 ton unit installed in 2011. Last fall, the fan motor failed in the air handler and had to be replaced. As I sit and type this review, I am waiting for a service technician to replace the fan motor again. I've recently found out this is a common problem with certain York heat pumps. Really kicking myself for not buying a Trane or Carrier.

"Great unit"
I had this York LX series unit installed 2 years ago. It has provided even warm heat(and the occasional blast of a/c in our typically temperate Northwest summers). Even with a 500 square foot addition, I am saving over 35% on my overall monthly electric bill. It is highly efficient and I am very happy.

"Happy Camper"
I replaced my old hvac unit with a York heat pump YCJF Series LX (14.5 SEER)and gas furnace. The unit has worked flawlessly for the past year. I added some ducting to increase flow to one of my rooms. The total cost for the 4 ton heat pump, gas heater and extra ducting was $9,510. This included $560 for a 10 year parts and labor warranty.

"Unit is a lemon"
Our York heat pump has has 10 service calls in less than five years. This June alone we've had three service calls. Our HVAC contractor has asked York to replace the unit and they refuse. Our repair bills (for labor) are almost $1000 and we've had to go out and buy a window unit, since the heat pump is so unreliable. I'd never buy another York product.

"The Jury is Out on York and Johnson Controls"
I wish I had read this site before I bought my York Affinity Air Handler, model avy36cxh21 and 2 Ton Heat Pump model yhjf24. Judging from these reviews, it seems York had a good reputation decades ago, but its product quality and service follow-through have rapidly deteriorated in recent years. First, some background: I live in the Pacific Northwest (Victoria BC), where Heat Pumps are all the rage because of cheap hydro power, and mild temperate winters that promise to save you money over Oil and Gas heat systems. So out went the Oil furnace and in came the HP. I went with the York model in late 2009 because it was a good price for a 14.5 SEER model compared to other brands. Here are the problems so far: - the York HP is louder than my friend's 3 ton Trane by a longshot as well as my buddy's more expensive York, which is a major problem for us because it is outside our bedroom - the unit began freezing up in 0 degree C weather, inhibiting efficiency, (defrost wasn't working right) and the reversing valve had to be replaced - again this winter, the unit is freezing up and the emergency heat function is not kicking on automatically during cold snaps, despite having a programmable thermostat, which tells me something is seriously wrong with this unit (I have to turn EH on manually when the unit ices up) Bottom line is, I would advise against York, especially at the lower end of the models. My friend raves about his Carrier, though I see they get bad reviews too. Some notes about this forum: 1) There is no number 1, 2 or 3 rated HP, has anyone noticed that? Very suspicious. 2) Many of the positive reviews appear closely together in date and mention the same contractor names over and over -- a very dubious and unethical tactic. Stay away from companies that use this tactic. 3) Most of the reviews here are negative, which indicates a disproportionate amount of naysayers dominate this forum. This isn't surprising, but I'd be wary of using this forum exclusively when comparing models. Throw out the worst and bes reviews, and the one's in the middle will give you some insight into a company's service record and product quality. 4) Many of the positive reviews are for obscure companies or companies like GE that don't make HPs anymore! How useless is that. Maybe GE should get back in the game...aanybody got a refurbished Weathertron they want to sell? Kidding... 5) The warranty on a HP doesn't really mean squat, because the real cost comes in the labour to install things like reversing valves, compressors, and the like. New buyers beware of this! If you can get an extended warranty that covers labour for 10 years (to supplement the typical 10 year manufacturer warranty), I would seriously consider it (if the price is right). 6) Noise. NOt all HPs are noisy, but certain models are worse than others -- the best way to learn is to ask to see one in action!
