York Aircon is an American air conditioner company that continues to make a name for itself in Singapore for its solid lineup of quality aircon products.
In this York aircon review, we’ll tell you everything you need to know about the brand’s products, their pros and cons and the best-selling features you should know about before buying.
Pros and Cons
As America’s top-quality air conditioner, York aircon is always focused on applying the latest aircon technology to its products. The brand’s new generation compressor uses the R410A refrigerant gas, enabling the machine to cool faster and deeper.
On average, a line of York 9000BTU series will take about 12 minutes to cool a 10 m2 room, while the 9000BTU models of other brands usually take about 15 minutes to cool the whole room.
Not only that, the Turbo modes will help the room quickly reach the required temperature in just a few minutes. The brand’s Follow Me technology helps to detect the room's human position, thereby having the right wind direction to cool room occupants.
It can be said that in refrigeration technology, York air conditioning can challenge more popular brands such as Panasonic or Daikin.
Most new generation York aircon products are equipped with inverter technology and use the R410A refrigerant gas, which helps the machines save up to 50% of electricity than other cheap and conventional aircon products.
Automatically detects gas leaks
York aircon units can automatically check and detect gas leaks due to installation or during operation. The EC error code will be displayed on the indoor unit, and the unit will stop for you to check and correct the problem.
York air conditioner products typically have a warranty period of 8 to 10 years.
Must be installed carefully
While York aircon is praised for its good refrigeration, the aircon units’ R410A gas still requires proper handling and care when doing the unit installation.
Repair parts are few and difficult to repair
Because the brand is a newcomer to Singapore and the products are all imported goods, it is quite difficult to find parts when failure occurs and parts need some replacing.
York Aircon Affinity YXV
York's premium offering is the Affinity YXV. This air conditioner has variable speed, is ENERGY STAR certified, has a SEER of 20 and is intended for quiet running. It also won gold at the Dealer Design Awards 2017. It is compliant with the Climate Package technologies, fitted with the QuietDrive system, and comes with a fast installation and maintenance - Charge Guarantee.

The Affinity YXT is also equipped with the QuietDrive system and can be combined with a standard control or an integrated Hx3 touchscreen thermostat control and programmable control with Wi-Fi.
York Aircon LX Advanced YFK
York's mid-range cooling system includes high-efficiency two-stage air conditioners, providing more temperature stability than its single-stage counterparts. It has a SEER ranking of 17, which ensures that you'll spend less on keeping your home cozy every month.
York Aircon LX Economy YCS, YCE, and YFE
These three York economy models each have a SEER of 14, and are single-stage aircons that are reliable and durable. If you switch from an aircon with a SEER rating of 10 to one of these versions, you might save as much as $0.29 for each dollar you spend on electric bills.
Thanks to the MicroChannel coil, both the YCS and YCE are also space-saving models, making them a great match for smaller homes and rooms.
