York GCGD Central Air Conditioners

York GCGD Air Conditioner Overview

The York GCGD is a discontinued split-system air conditioner with an efficiency of 13 SEER. A high pressure relief valve and a temperature sensor protected the unit’s compressor from high pressure and temperature, and a liquid-line filter drier protected against moisture and debris. It featured a condenser coil constructed of aluminum tubing and fins for increased efficiency. A rigid top panel and isolator mounted compressor helped keep sound levels as low as 72 decibels. The unit was protected by a painted galvanized steel cabinet which was pre-treated to resist corrosion. The GCGD used R-22 refrigerant.

Easy install, great performance, reasonable price, good warranty, professional installer. Installer was on time, with the equipment I needed. Equipment has performed great. Installer covered each aspect of the warranty, and operation of the new unit.

"Not very quiet"

2.0 rating
Somewhat Unsatisfied

My neighbor's York unit seemed very quiet to me. So I agreed with the contractor's selection of a 2.5 ton York. To my ears my newer unit, by 3 years, is noisier than my neighbors. Also, when is shuts off, it sometimes makes a loud bang noise. The contractor has been out and he is attentive. Says he may have to replace a part called a contactor. I still am bothered by the decibel level and worried about the loud bang when it shuts off. Other reviews have mentioned the 'loud bang'. I do not think I will buy another York.

"Don't buy"

Very Unsatisfied

Our central air was installed in May of 2013. Last year we had to have it recharged and our tech thought it might be a leak. Here it is June in Arizona. Our air conditioner is not working. We are told it needs a new compressor which is under our extended warranty. But our warranty only covers parts. Labor is estimated to be $1,245. This is 31% of the cost we paid for an air conditioner and new furnace. We paid $4,000 for the new AC and new heating unit installed. I am also wondering how long this new compressor will last. I should have kept the e sportive cooler. It was a whole lot cheaper.

Our contractor replaced our old AC unit with this one and it runs quieter, seems to use less electricity and is doing a great job. The install went smooth. Very pleased (I'm a lung cancer survivor with one lung living in the humid Mississippi woods, cool circulating air is a must for me). My contractor was awesome and the unit seems to live up to expectations so far.
