Comparable Models by York
Model Comparison by Features
In comparison to the Affinity™ Series TCHD, a lower-level model from York’s premium line, you’ll find that the LX™ Series YCD has the same SEER Rating of up to 13, but it doesn’t offer the QuietDrive™ System technology that reaches levels of sound reduction achievable with the TCHD model. However, the YCD model still maintains a comfortable level of sound production.
Model Comparison by Price
In terms of cost, the LX™ Series YCD is superior compared to the Affinity™ Series TCHD. You will save the same amount on long-term energy costs with both models, however, the YCD model is a part of York economy lines and therefore comes at a lower cost upon purchase.
Model Comparison by Tier
As a member of the economy line, the LX™ Series YCD is on the lower end of York’s air conditioning spectrum. It doesn’t offer as many amenities as the more advanced models, nor is it ENERGY STAR®-certified, however, it’s a more affordable option for customers looking for simple cooling comfort.
