York Stealth Heat Pump Overview

The York Stealth heat pump is a discontinued split-system unit with an efficiency rating of up to 15.7 SEER and 9.3 HSPF. A twin-single compressor delivered increased humidity control and longer system life, while mufflers, compressor mounts, and specially-designed sound blankets reduced vibration and operating noise. Permanently lubricated motor bearings required no servicing, while fully exposed refrigerant connections and a single electrical control panel made servicing easy. The cabinet was constructed of primer-coated steel with a powder paint finish for protection against the elements.

"An Abolute Nightmare"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

Had a 3-ton York Stealth heat pump installed during the summer of 2003 by a local York dealer who assured us that the unit would be capable of handling our winter heating requirements as it was the "top of the line" and very latest technology. The pump has worked only reasonably well for about 16 months out of the five year period. The fancy compressor failed in year two, coolant leaks abound, valves and run capacitor have been replaced and now the replacement compressor is gone again. So far this thing has cost me about $15,000.00. I have been battling with the regional York representatives and York's parent company, Johnson Controls but it has been a complete wall of silence until I wrote to a Vice-President at Johnson Controls. In early September, the senior technician for the York representative advised that agreement had been reached to completely replace the entire unit (outside and inside) as the "Stealth" model has been discontinued (I can understand why). As of this date, I'm still waiting and now they are back-pedaling and saying they are thinking of replacing the inside coil only. Go figure. I would not wish this brand on my worst enemy.
