Comparable Models by York
Model Comparison by Features
Assessing the features of the LX™ Series YCG in comparison the Affinity™ Series CZH, you’ll see that the YCG system is the lesser of the two. While it offers a considerable amount of special features, the YCG does not have Quietdrive™ technology to reach the same levels of sound reduction. However, the YCG model maintains a comfortable level of quiet for the home.
Model Comparison by Price
In terms of pricing, the LX™ Series YCG is a part of York’s more affordable line. This has made the LX™ Series most popular among York’s consumers, as the YCG still maintains an impressively high SEER Rating whilst also having a cheaper initial cost than the Affinity™ Series.
Model Comparison by Tier
The LX™ Series YCG belongs to a middle range line offered by York. While it doesn’t have all the frills of a model like an Affinity™ Series CZH, it has an upgraded SEER Rating and more advanced technology than York’s economy models.
