YORK® Affinity™ Series Gas Furnaces Designated ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient 2017
Press release date: Nov 30, 2017
Furnaces redefine home comfort with worry-free reliability, value-added features and enhanced convenience
MILWAUKEE (Nov. 30, 2017) – YORK® Affinity™ Series 97.5 percent and above AFUE gas furnaces from Johnson Controls have been recognized as ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient 2017, when combined with touch-screen Communicating Control thermostats. The ENERGY STAR Most Efficient 2017 designation is awarded to the most efficient products among those that qualify for ENERGY STAR. The YP9C model has also been recognized as a Consumers Digest Best Buy.
Designed, engineered and assembled in the United States and backed by the manufacturing expertise of Fortune 100 parent company Johnson Controls, YORK Affinity furnaces deliver world-class quality. Reliability is enhanced through systematic testing at the company’s Highly Accelerated Life Testing (HALT) facilities.
YORK Affinity furnaces’ modulating burner design and Constant CFM ECM blower motor provide quiet, even, efficient air circulation, while the Affinity™ Residential Communicating Control and the YORK Affinity Hx™ Thermostat with Wi-Fi®-enabled touch-screen provide greater precision in system operation. The furnaces also feature YORK’s ClimaTrak™ technology, which customizes operation to the conditions of any climate, and are backed by a lifetime heat exchanger, 10-year parts warranty and one-year limited labor warranty.
The units’ compact 33-inch height, reinforced cabinet doors and ¼-turn knobs make them easy to install in constrained applications. Technicians will also appreciate the flexibility a multi-position product provides using a rotatable inducer and a built-in trap for quick simple conversion. All models can be used in either one or two pipe installations with a self-monitoring system that enables quick diagnostics. Additionally, contractors can access the system remotely, when granted permission by the homeowner, to evaluate system operation before leaving for the jobsite.
ENERGY STAR Most Efficient YORK furnaces are included on the ENERGY STAR website. For more information about YORK Affinity furnaces, visit www.YORK.com/affinity.
