The York TG8S is a single stage gas furnace with an efficiency rating of 80% AFUE. It is designed for multi-position installation — upflow, horizontal left or right, or downflow — and its compact 33-inch height requires less space for installation. It has a tubular aluminized steel primary heat exchanger and a 4 speed, direct drive PSC motor. The unit has built-in self-diagnostics with fault code displays to help monitor the system, and an electronic hot surface ignition which improves efficiency and reliability. The TG8S is factory shipped for use with natural gas but can be converted for use with propane. The TG8S is part of York's Latitude series.
Had this unit for years now, no problems at all, just change your filters and do regular preventive maintenance and these units last forever. All the negative reviews are from people whom otherwise don’t know how to care for their system or the contractor whom installed it, didn’t do it properly. Keyword is Properly.
The value of this unit seem incomparable in my opinion. Our previous furnace was loud, inefficient, and in constant need of maintenance. When we switched to a York all of these problems were solved. Not only can we sleep through the furnace coming on at night, we also are saving money because it is more efficient. Combine that with low maintenance and I can’t see us ever going with a different brand.
"Do your homework"
Do a spread sheet, minimum of 16 units that fall within the range your home needs. Go online and start documenting what’s a positive and what’s a negative. Search and qualify strictly by the numbers and your bottom line after insulation and month to month will be the lowest and the best choice you could have made!

"York furnace review"
Great value for the money. Great installation team and good warranty.
"Equipment and contractor"
This furnace and A/C was installed as a replacement for old units. It was well priced and has performed very well for the past year. The contractor, Allan Ljunquist, did an exceptional job of installing the units.
There are a couple of posts on hvac-talk.com from homeowners asking for opinions of the TG8S. Replies to both posts stated that the unit is a low end, builders grade furnace and that most low end units are basically the same regardless of brand.
