The York TG9S furnace, part of the Latitude series, is an Energy Star-certified furnace that also carries a Good Housekeeping Seal for quality and trust. Standing at only 33 inches tall, its compact size was designed for installation in areas such as attics, closets and basements. The TG9S boasts a 95.5 percent AFUE rating. It features tubular aluminized steel heat exchanger and a constant speed blower that translates into consistent air distribution indoors. The configuration is multi-position with a PSC fan motor and single-stage burner.
The unit is shipped from the factory for installation in horizontal applications, but can be converted for downflow applications, if needed. MBH input ranges from 40 to 130. The TG9S is suitable for residential and commercial installations.
York furnace ran well for a couple of winters and then the condensate collector box leaked all over and ruined a good portion of the furnace. With that said, York- so far- has been reasonable to deal with. Paid a lot of money for something that really isn’t very well made. We rely on our heating equipment in Vermont, and York is just not very good quality. Pay now or pay later- you will pay for a York more than once! Be warned!

"Residential furnace, 85% DIY"
Read a review that this unit was an easy diy project if you are mechanically minded to any degree. True. Installed all but the gas conversion to lp and the gas hookup. Paid a local contractor to inspect installation and do the gas work. Took me at least 3 times as long as a contractor would have taken but he would have cost over $85 per hour to install. Instructions were easy to follow. Works great!

"Fox Bothers Rocks!"
Had a new York furnace installed in my 132 year old historic home and Dustin and his crew did an excellent job. I would highly recommend Fox Brothers Mechanical and York furnaces to all my friends who are looking for a quality furnace and excellent installation.
Our York furnace and AC unit are complete crap boxes. We had an old Trane that worked but I was trying to save ENERGY/lLOWER my carbon footprint. I did because the units never work. Every part of the heater has been replaced, some twice. Give me a new York unit and let’s call it a day. Better yet, give me my old Trane back!

"Things keep breaking"
I bought my york furnace 2 1/2 years ago, I had some minor adjustments that the installer took care of. but the install is now out of buisness. Last January the capacitor and limit switch had to be repalaced to the tune of $300+. And now a year later I get up in the morning and the temperature in the house is 51. So I call my hvac guy and several visits later I have to have the low and high pressure switches replaced, which but to the grace of the hvac guy would have been $550. I don,t understand how a furnace that is only 2 1/2 years old should have this many problems.
In general, reviews from around the web praise the York TG9S for its affordability, energy-efficiency and performance. A few problems are reported on consumer forums, however. Among them, one homeowner on hvac-talk.com complains about the noise produced by the unit after it was installed. As it turns out, there was a glitch during the installation and the piping wasn’t run outside as it should have been. Other contractors on the forum suggest that adjusting the pressure also may help to cut down on noise.
A consumer asks on hvacmechanic.com for advice on how to keep burners on his newly installed TG9S from going out every few seconds. Upon further inspection, he finds that condensate collection unit has a leak that could be damaging the thermocouple. Contractors on the forum encourage the homeowner to report the problem to the installing technician, rather than the manufacturer.
