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.
Furnace was installed in the summer of 2010. The condensate pan developed a leak in the winter of 2012, causing flooding of the furnace room. The fan broke down a few weeks later and we were without heat for several days during the coldest snap of the end of the year. Parts were covered by the warranty, but labor was not. We paid our HVAC contractor $300 to get the furnace repaired. Obviously, we are very dissatisfied with the product and would neither buy that brand again or recommended it to anyone.
"I agree, York is a piece of crap"
Had furnace installed just over 2 years ago, woke up yesterday to no heat. Had repairman out and he got it started, said it was a faulty wire. Woke up this morning, no heat again!! Should have read these reviews first.
"It’s hard to stop a York."
I have had a York furnace for ten years and not one problem. Thinking about going with a hig effiency unit and will probably go with York.
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.
