York Affinity Heat Pump Overview

Reaching up to 18 SEER, the Affinity Series is York's top-tier heat pump product line. This series consists of two units, the Affinity YZH, which offers 18 SEER/10 HSPF, and the YZF, which offers 16 SEER/9 HSPF. Units are available in 2- to 5-ton models, all of which meet Energy Star standards for efficiency.

While only the 18 SEER model has a two-stage scroll compressor, both units feature York's QuietDrive system, which combines a swept fan, composite base pan and separate compressor space to keep system noise at a minimum. Units also are equipped with a "demand defrost" coil designed to reduce the defrost cycle on the outdoor coil.

The heat pumps are finished in a powder-coated paint and have sealed electrical contractors and a rigid base pan for increased durability. Optional accessories, such as a programmable thermostat, also are available for this unit.

There are also several discontinued sub-series of heat pumps within the Affinity series, including the Affinity 8T, with an efficiency of up to 18 SEER and 9.4 HSPF; Affinity YZB, which offered an efficiency of 13 SEER and 8.6 HSPF; and Affinity YZE, with an efficiency of up to 15 SEER and 9.8 HSPF.

York Affinity Heat Pump Reviews

"Good equipment"

5.0 rating
Very Satisfied

I am very satisfied with my York. It performs well. It is fairly quiet and really cools and heats as expected. I had a York in my first home and it lasted 30 years. In the era of built-in obsolescence, I do not expect 30 years out of this unit. On the bright side, it does carry a 10 year parts warranty and I purchased the 10 year service warranty. About that 10 service warranty; I have yet to receive any information showing that it's in place. I requested it from the contractor and York several times. Hope this review helps someone make an informed decision.

"Awesome"

Built a home in 1999 and it came with a York 2 1/2 ton system. We have had not one problem with this heat pump. It's now 17 years old, has some rust, and is starting to make some noise but still works great. Husband wants to replace it because of its age. Now we are looking into having it replaced with the newest York model.

"BHZ 024 to 060 Affinity packaged heat pump"

5.0 rating
Very Satisfied

This unit has now been on-line for one year. In that time, the contractor was only called once, and that was for a vibration noise which turned out to be nothing more than the R-410A connector had loosened on the outside cabinet of the unit, and was vibrating in place. A simple tightening of the nut fixed the noise. This unit has operated flawlessly in our hot desert environment.

"Not happy $3000 repair bill"

Very Unsatisfied

Bought high end hoping it would make a difference. Now at 7 years old the blower motor failure requires a $3000 repair bill.

"Junk"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

Have had the unit for a little over 4 years. As soon as the limited warranty expired, the unit started acting up. $700.00 for a condenser fan motor (lasted less than 6 months ), had to replace a valve in the unit at a cost of $ 800.00, and now need a fan motor at $1200.00.
