The York TM9V furnace, a part of the LX series, was designed to couple efficiency with comfort. The quiet furnace uses a 2-stage burner and a constant speed blower intended to evenly distribute heat house-wide. The TM9V operates using variable speed technology, meaning the blower gradually adjusts to deliver comfort without waste. It has a 96 percent AFUЕ rating and carries the Good Housekeeping Seal.
Additional features of the TM9V include a 2-stage inducer operation, a built-in self-diagnostic display and an adjustable delay timer that allows for 2-stage operation using a single-stage thermostat. The heat exchanger is constructed from aluminized stainless steel tubing and the blower compartment is insulated for optimal performance. Its compact size of 33 inches makes it suitable for installation in homes where space is an issue. This particular unit can be installed in upflow, horizontal left or right, or downflow configuration and can be converted to use propane gas.
Basement flood killed 10-year-old Olsen unit. Our contractor GoGreenHVAC installed a tm9v060 unit in one day and did a great job. The furnace is super quiet and so far appears to be a good upgrade. Would recommend this unit, and definitely the contractor who installed it.
"Very Bad Choice"
We purchased this furnace after the 20+ year-old, low efficiency furnace finally gave out last October, 2017. I was looking forward to replacing it with a high efficiency and more quiet model, which is why I went with the more expensive 96%, 2 stage, variable speed (ecm) model. Once installed, the first problem was that it was so loud that it felt like being in the back seat of an old md-80 jet airplane. This required adjusting down the speed of the motor as much as possible so that it was tolerable – but not quieter than the old unit I replaced. We were told that this would make it operate even more efficiently and we even replaced old return vents, and registers, plus cleaning of ducts, to try to minimize the noise, to no avail. I even replaced my thermostat with a Nest model to better control the furnace settings. After a year of use, looking at my gas usage history for the past three years, I see that the amount used has not changed at all, even though we had a very mild winter last year (Salt Lake City, IT). When looking at the weather adjusted usage, it shows a marked increase in gas consumption! Trying to deal with York (Johnson Controls) has also been a waste of time. They offer no assistance at all and will throw the blame back on your home. I am beyond disappointed and wish I had read reviews sooner. If you are looking for a new furnace, stay away from York and Johnson Controls. Save yourself some grief.

"Question – LED flashing problem"
Question is – furnace now almost three years old. Since installation when in Normal operation with no call for heat – led light has been flashing Green. Now it is flashing Amber. Technicians say this is “Normal” because this model is Modulating Model and therefore always has Amber led. I have reviewed the Manual – I can find several places where Normal Operation with no call for heat is Green Flashing led. Can you tell me why for the past couple of years it has been Green led flashing — and now it has changed to Amber led. From a layman’s perspective there is a problem. Help please – an e-mail would be appreciated. Manual for owner use should be more specific.

"No need for dehumidifier"
Most of the day use only first stage of heating. No need for dehumidifier. I like the option that I can select fan speed and even disable second stage heating however I wish that it was done by buttons not by jumpers. If it would be a bit more quiet it would be great.
A homeowner on digitalhome.ca complains about the noise that this unit makes. According to the homeowner, the noise is due to a poor installation. Contractors on the site suggest a number of solutions for the noise problem, including maintenance to ensure the unit is draining properly, adjusting the blower speed since the dip switches may not have been set properly, as well as resetting the gas pressure.
Several homeowners on hvac-talk.com looking for information on how the TM9V compares to other units find that contractors are happy to recommend the York unit. One contractor calls it quality unit that makes for easy maintenance, while another says it provides good performance at a more reasonable cost than some other brands.
