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
The LX™ Series YFD doesn’t promise all the innovative technologies and sleek design of the more advanced York models, such as the Affinity™ Series CZF. Where the CZF model offers Touch Screen communicating controls for remote system operation, the YFD is more of a simple, hands-on model.
Model Comparison by Price
Cost-wise, the LX™ Series YFD model is the most budget-friendly for customers seeking a cheaper air conditioning upon. Offering a more simple design, the YFD model is cheaper than the Affinity™ Series CZF but is less cost-effective in the long run due to its lower SEER Rating.
Model Comparison by Tier
In terms of tier, the LX™ Series YFD is on the lower range of air conditioners offered by York. However, its success is mainly due in part to its simplicity and affordability, as opposed to the higher-tier Affinity™ Series models.
