Our Builder Installed A York Central Conditioner Unit And I Can'T Find Any Reviews? How Is This Brand?
York is one of the top Air Conditioning manufacturers and is a very good brand. What people need to remember is that we now live in a disposable world and Air Conditioners, like your cars, are only designed to last approximately 10 years. But also like your car, it does need periodic maintenance and cleaning (1-2 times per year). If properly maintained, you could expect to gain another 5 to 10 years of service from your air conditioning system.
For the maintenance of you air conditioning system, look for an experienced and reputable company. Stay loyal to that company. Believe it or not, the longer you are with the same company, the better the maintenance and service of your air conditioning will be. Companies really don't like customers who jump from company to company just trying to save 5 dollars. You will only hurt yourself and it will cost you more in the long run.
