Air Conditioning York® air conditioners are a welcome addition outside and inside your home. A traditional home comfort system has two parts: an indoor unit, such as a furnace or air handler, and an outdoor unit. An air conditioner is the outdoor unit that cools air and sends it to the indoor unit for circulation through your home. Indoor and outdoor units are designed to work together. When the air conditioner is properly matched with a furnace or air handler, you get maximum efficiency and longer system life.
Furnaces Count on a York® furnace to give you a warm welcome. Factory assembled, wired, and tested, York® furnaces are built for dependability, economy, and comfort. Furnaces heat and circulate warm air in the winter. Furnace heating ability is measured with an Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) percentage. A higher AFUE percentage indicates a more efficient furnace.
High-Efficiency Heat Pumps York® heat pumps deliver four-season comfort in one stylish unit. They cool your home like an air conditioner in summer, and warm it in the winter like a furnace. A split system heat pump keeps homes comfortable all year long. In summer, it draws heat out of your home to cool it. In the winter, it draws heat from outside air into your home to warm it.
Packaged Heat Pumps York ® heat pumps are packaged in one compact cabinet designed for outdoor installation to save space indoors. In warm weather, you'll get up to 13 SEER cooling efficiency depending on the model. In cold weather, heating efficiencies are as high as 7.6 HSPF.
Thermostats are extremely important because they are your interface and control system for your heating and air conditioning equipment. This is the device that will give you the information on what the equipment is doing, when it needs to be serviced, and allows you to set the exact temperature and humidity you want to maintain in your home.
We highly recommend that you purchase a thermostat that is extremely easy to use, with a large backlit display that you can see clearly day and night. The display should show not only the room temperature but also your set-point (desired temperature), the humidity and the status of the equipment.
Zoning allows you to have different temperatures in each room or area of your house. You can have one temperature in the kitchen, another temperature in the family room, another temperature in your bedroom, etc. Not only does this provide much more comfort but it can save you up to 20% per year in your annual operating costs because you don't overheat or overcool the areas that are unoccupied. The operating cost savings could be the equivalent to that of going from a 13 SEER air conditioning system to a 15 SEER system.
Zoning is getting more popular all the time as people demand to be more comfortable as in most new luxury cars now you have at least two zones, one for the passenger and one for the driver.
The way zoning operates is you have dampers in the duct work that open and close to provide heated or cooled air to different parts of the house. Each area has its own thermostat and its own control. It can maintain the temperature at which ever temperature you like in each one of the different areas.
The cost of zoning varies depending on how difficult it is to get to the duct work to install the controls. We can give you an exact cost after we survey your duct work system.

Air Handlers A traditional home comfort system has two parts: an outdoor unit, such as an air conditioner or heat pump, and an indoor unit. The air handler is the indoor unit that circulates cool air through your home in the summer and warm air in the winter. The indoor and outdoor units are designed to work together. Air handlers supply conditioned air evenly throughout your home, when used in place of a furnace, with either an air conditioning or heat pump system.
Air Cleaners Now you can be sure your home's air is clear of dust, pollen, fungi, smoke and other particles too small to see. It's easy with York's HEPA, Electronic and Media Air Cleaners. These cleaners provide stepped-up filtration, more effective than your furnace or air conditioner alone. In fact, these cleaners can remove up to 94 percent of the particles that pass through your home's system. And since these pollutants can build up as film on walls and furniture, this is performance you'll feel and see.
Evaporator Coils A traditional home comfort system has two parts: an outdoor unit, such as an air conditioner or heat pump, and an indoor unit, such as a furnace or air handler. The evaporator coil is a series of piping connected to a furnace or air handler that blows indoor air across it, causing the coil to absorb heat from the air. The cooled air is then delivered to the house through ducting. The refrigerant then flows back to the compressor where the cycle starts over again.
York offers evaporator coils for cooling and heat pump applications engineered to be installed with York furnaces and to be matched with York cooling and heat pump outdoor units.
