re: York - YCJF

HI,

I decided that get a 2- ton York YCJF - 14.5 seed for my 1800 sq. ft house mainlly because of its blend name and the compact size. It seems to have some good reviews here. Does anyone know roughly a reasonable price and any good authorzied dealers in Mississauga/GTA? I got one dealer quoted me $3650 cad. I thought the AC of this size and blend catogary is roughly $2500k.

Hey,

No joke.. The guy quoted me $3650 for a 2-ton York YCJF. In fact, he try to sell me a ClimateCare product, which he said he is the same as York.

I am calling a couple more contractors and see what happen.

Here are my list

1. Easterbrook Brothers Ltd. (website say family owned, no sub-contracter, >60)
2. Northwood Heating and Air Conditioning (website say family owned, no sub-contracter used, >35 yrs)
3. Alliance Energy
4. Active Temp Control - (seems to have bad reviews from homestar, even though it is a member of HRAI, TSSA, and BBB give them "A" rating, the guy quoted me around $2800 including tax)

so... I continue my search of a reputatable and reasonable priced contractors..

_______

On a side note, I am replacing by Heil (builder's model) unit that is 11 years old. The unit is only 1.5 tons for a 1800 sq. unit house. Basically, I noticed the AC can't cool the house on a hot day, and it also makes my basement very humid. (The AC is supposed to dry the basement, not make it wet) On a hot day, I noticed that the AC air is discharging around 18C with 63-70% RH when the outside temp is 30C. At night, the AC air is around 16C with 63% RH. I had a service call, the guys said it is possible the cap tubes are plugged as not enough feorn is passing thru the A-coil, the compressor is stressed trying to push the feorn. Given the unit is a builder's model, seems to be undersized, I decided to get a new unit.

Acutally, what is a proper range of AC discharging air in the house?

I used Alliance Energy for my York Affinity Install. See my signature for the installation video + pictures. I also referred a fellow member here to get the LX unit installed for about $2500.

Your AC air temp and RH discharge is WAY OFF THE CHARTS and there is something seriously wrong with it. My discharge temp is constant at 13~14 degree with RH of 35 to 40% and that is measurements taken by three separate VERY expensive thermometers and RH meters.

When I was shopping for an AC, one company tried to quote me $5600 for the 2 Ton 18 SEER Affinity lol

Anyone have any personal experience with the YCJF A/C units. I was thinking about getting it but i heard that York has some reliability issues.

York is one of the worst brands for Central AC according to Consumer Reports.

It looks like all the brands reliability are pretty dismal.
