York split system heat pumps keep homes comfortable all year long in all types of weather conditions. Buy a York Heat Pump and you’ll understand the value associated with the York name.

The York products are simply amazing, 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. Much like a central air conditioner, a York Heat Pump is simple and generally easy to use. The York Heat Pump includes a compressor, fan, outdoor coil, indoor coil, and a refrigerant.

The efficiency of York Heat Pumps is rated using SEER (for cooling efficiency) and HSPF (for heating efficiency).

Built from the ground up and testing the everchanging world of heat pumps, York has been developing space conditioning and refrigeration products, such as heat pumps, since 1874. They are a reputable company and have worked on projects such as the British Houses of Parliament, the English Channel Eurotunnel, the Pompidou Center in Paris, the Kremlin in Moscow and the Sydney Opera House.

York offers a wide variety of split system heat pumps in different sizes and efficiencies.

    I have had a york now for a few months….. So far I have not seen the energy savings the local heating guy claimed I would. I think my unit ended up to not be as efficient as some of the better models. When shopping for your HVAC system, make sure to compare the efficiency ratings so you know what your getting into.

    Our York heat pump came new with the house in 2005. This year we learned that 8 other homes in the neighborhood (out of 30 homes total) have had to replace their York heat pump already. Most were the 3 ton/ 10 SEER models made around 2005. Well, ours just went and when it did, it was nasty. Blew oil all over the inside of the unit, the fan bade and motor are shot, the compressor is bust. Some neighbors almost feel there should be some class action law suit with the number of occurrences of total failure of these units. The “ol crappy Carrier” heat pump and handler in my first house I bought back in 1997 are still running strong. Would I buy York again? HELL NO. Good luck for those who love their Yorks, though a few months of ownership isn’t a true test.

      Matt,
      Heat pumps are expected to last between 13 to 15 years. That’s what I was told by heat pump workers. My Trane lasted 18 years and just went this winter.
      I have checked the reviews and will likely buy a Carrier. These seem to be the best for the buck. If I can afford it I’m going geothermal. Waiting to hear from a few dealers on prices and government rebates.
      Should be interesting to see the price differences in the products.

    Moved into a new neighborhood with all York heat pumps after about five years 10% of the units went bad .Now eight years in about 60% went bad. York is the worst heat pump I’ve ever seen.

    There are no words to express our utter disgust with our York Stealth heat pump. The trouble started the first winter after install and has not ended. Last winter our compressor was replaced twice in 6 weeks, while still under warranty ( 8 yrs old), we incurred a $1000.00 labor charge. Multiple problems and service calls ensued each winter. The entire compressor was frozen solid this winter and after 4 hours a technician assured us that nothing was wrong with the unit. A month later , after staggering Electric bills, they admitted that the coil was leaking. It has been an absolute NIGHTMARE from moment one! York , when contacted, was of no help….the entire experience has been a disgrace. I would not buy another York system if my life depended on it.
    And I agree with reviews above, that a class action lawsuit should be filed.

    Selecting a heat pump mfg based on the average input of, to date, 7 reviewers would be irrational. In most review/forum sites, the majority of respondents are negative as it is human nature to warn others of our bad experiences. I would suggest basing decisions on broader review sites and rating services. i.e. Consumer Reports et al. I have a 19 year old York 3 ton system that is still working fine. A few minor repairs such as a $17 temp sensor or a $50 fan/compressor start capacitor, and had the Freon checked/topped off once about 6 years ago. Keeps on tickin’ Looking to replace with new/more efficient system. Not sure if York is still good quality. Depends largely on which “good, better, best” level you get from each mfg and how that racks up to other mfgs of comparable efficiency. Family members have had good experience with Carrier and York but that could be luck of the draw. There’s always Monday/Friday lemons just like with automobiles. I think the installer is 80% of the battle. If they know their product, it probably will turn out good. If they’re goobers who butcher your product, well, a bad ending follows a bad beginning. Good luck all.

    Was asked about my York heat pump by a relative, and we started online searching to confirm our experience. Surprised by these results, even given a small sample size. I really believe the contractor most important in the decision, the best product will fail if installed poorly. The best dealer in our area sells York and we love the unit they installed. Highly recommended.
