In order to help homeowners shop for furnaces and air conditioners, we developed our own proprietary algorithms which weigh a range of criteria and factors to provide an easy-to-compare grade (e.g. B-, A+, etc).
Warranty Grade: It can be difficult to know which brands and models offer the best warranty coverage, particularly because a lot of the key details are hidden in dense warranty documents filled with hard to understand legalese. Thankfully for you, we’ve carefully studied them and created this grading system to account for things like the length AND quality of their guarantee, coverage restrictions and more!
Overall Grade: This grade weighs key factors like efficiency, ENERGY STAR certification, comfort, noise level (for A/Cs), our warranty grade, and more.

Comparable Models by York
Model Comparison by Features
In comparison to the advanced LX™ Series YCG model, you’ll find that the Affinity™ Series CZF offers more premium features. Such features include the QuietDrive™ Sound Reduction System that can attain a level of quietness unachievable by the LX™ Series YCG technology.
Model Comparison by Price
As the Affinity™ Series CZF is a premium range model, it comes at a higher initial cost than the LX™ Series YCG, which belongs to York’s more affordable line. Due to a lower SEER rating is less cost-effective than the YCG model in the long run.
Model Comparison by Tier
Compared to the Affinity™ Series YXV, the line’s top model, the CZF stands on middle ground. It is ENERGY STAR-certified like its counterpart but doesn’t offer as many amenities as the YXV. Nonetheless, the CZF provides a considerable number of technologies that aren’t offered by the models of the LX™ series.
