YORK home comfort systems are designed and built to provide maximum quality,
comfort and efficiency to your home. Whether you're looking for a furnace, an air
conditioning or a complete heating & cooling solution, we can evaluate factors such
your home's size, age, number of rooms, regional climate and utility costs to select the
best system for your home.
GAS FURNACES & ELECTRIC AIR HANDLERS-
Most comfort systems have two parts: an outdoor air conditioner or heat pump, and
an indoor unit, a furnace. Furnaces heat and circulate warm air in the winter. They
also take cool air from the outdoor unit and circulate it through your home in the
summer. The indoor and outdoor units are designed to work together. When the
furnace is properly matched with a heat pump or air conditioner, you enjoy maximum
efficiency and extended system life.
The basic components of a gas furnace system are:
- A Burner, where gas (natural or propane) or oil is delivered and burned
- A Heat Exchanger, where the heat from the burning gas is transferred to the air
- Ductwork to transfer the heated air throughout the home
- A Flue or Vent Pipe, to exhaust byproducts of combustion (such as water vapor and
carbon dioxide) outside
HIGH-EFFICIENCY HEAT PUMPS-
YORK heat pumps delivers four-season comfort in one stylish unit. They cool your
home in the summer like an air conditioner, and warm it in the winter like a furnace.
In summer, it draws heat out of your home to cool it. In the winter, it draws heat from
outside air into your home to warm it. Many heat pumps have a booster electrical-
resistance heater that automatically heats outside air even more. Outside air always
has heat in it -- even at very low outdoor temperatures. Like a central air conditioner,
a heat pump includes a compressor, fan, outdoor coil, indoor coil, and a refrigerant.
The efficiency of heat pumps is rated using SEER (for cooling efficiency) and HSPF
(for heating efficiency). A heat pump uses electricity as its power source.
The basic components of a heat pump are:
- An outdoor Heat Pump section
- A matching indoor Air Handler or Gas (natural or propane) or Oil Furnace with coil
- Ductwork to transfer the heated or cooled air throughout the home.
York offers a wide variety of split system heat pumps in different sizes and
INDOOR AIR QUALITY-
A study conducted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency found that indoor air
could actually be more polluted than outdoor air. Considering that most individuals
spend up to 90 percent of each day indoors--more than half of that time at home--you
may be experiencing indoor air pollution without even knowing it.
Today, homes are sealed more tightly to conserve energy. Unfortunately, this seals in
mold, pollen, bacteria and other pollutants. Since the U.S. EPA ranks indoor air
pollution among the top five environmental risks to public health, many homeowners
Fortunately, there's a solution to most indoor air quality problems. York offers an
array of choices designed to ventilate stale indoor air, zap airborne germs, trap
airborne particles and moisturize parched air.
