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.

The YORK LX Series TM9T is a multi-positioning furnace that finds itself sitting comfortably within the brand’s selection of mid-range products. If you are looking for a well-engineered unit from a brand with a proven history of dependability, this furnace is for you. Achieving an AFUE rating of up to 96%, the TM9T also has a heating capacity of 60,000 to 120,000 BTUh.
With an incredibly compact height of only 33-inches, the LX Series TM9T is built for comfort in almost every regard. It’s able to perform with a high-level of efficiency thanks to the unit’s constant-speed PSC motor, while an adjustable delay timer allows for two-stage operation when only utilizing a single-stage thermostat. This means that the LX Series TM9T is able to shift its level of performance to track temperatures more accurately, providing even more comfort.

Comparable Models by YORK
Model Comparison by Features
The LX Series TM9T represents a more pared down version of some of YORK’s other mid-range offerings, like the TM9Y. Although the TM9T still achieves an AFUE rating of up to 96%, similar to the TM9Y, it utilizes a fixed-speed PSC motor to do so. This ultimately makes it a less cost-effective unit when compared to the LX Series TM9Y.
Model Comparison by Price
The TM9T will likely find itself as one of the more affordable models in the LX Series when compared to units such as the TM9Y or TM9V. However, due to its less energy-efficient components, the TM9T won’t save as much money over a longer length of time despite the fact that it boasts a similar AFUE rating.
Model Comparison by Tier
The LX Series TM9T is a great economic option within the mid-tier selection of YORK furnaces. Although, it may lack many of the innovative technologies that can be found within the premium Affinity™ Series, this unit is able to confidently boast AFUE ratings of up to 96%.
