It's difficult to provide accurate air conditioner prices because York sells its units to contractors at wholesale prices. Consumers then buy both the units and installation services from the contractors. Prices can vary widely depending on where you live, the demands of the installation, and the wholesale prices the contractor receives from York.

What you should know is that York's air conditioners are generally placed at lower price points than units from other manufacturers. You can expect to pay $3,500 to $7,000 for a CZH unit and $2,250 to $5,000 for a YCJD unit.


The main benefit of York air conditioners is their low prices. Each York unit has a good seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) rating. This is the government's rating for how efficiently an air conditioner operates. You can therefore expect your York air conditioner to sufficiently cool your home while also keeping your energy bills low. 

You also get a 10-year warranty on parts and the unit's compressor when you buy a York air conditioner. You can even opt for a lifetime warranty on the CZH's compressor.


A few drawbacks to buying and installing a York air-conditioning system exist. Problems can arise if your unit is not installed correctly. It's therefore important that you hire an HVAC contractor who will follow all of the installation rules. If you have a good contractor, you can expect a lifetime of comfort from your York system.
