Model Comparison by Features
The YORK Latitude(TM) Series TG9S is a similar single-stage unit which operates with a fixed-drive PSC fan motor. Contrastly, the LX Series TM9E utilizes a high-efficiency ECM motor. Although both of these products offer an AFUE rating of around 95%, only the LX Series TM9E is able to obtain ENERGY STAR certification.
