Two York® Affinity™ modulating gas furnaces win Best Buy awards

MILWAUKEE – (September 22, 2014) – Consumers Digest recently named Johnson Controls Best Buy award winners for two York® Affinity™ Series modulating gas furnaces models for outstanding efficiency ratings,  fuel-conserving features and improved homeowner comfort. The designation also considered ease of use, maintenance requirements and quality and reliability.

The variable-speed model features an electronically commutated motor (ECM) that delivers up to 98 percent Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE), positioning the unit among the industry’s most efficient gas furnaces. The second Affinity model recognized by Consumers Digest uses a permanent split capacitor (PSC) motor to deliver a 97 percent AFUE.

“For dealers and homeowners searching for efficient heating systems that are easy to install and service in tight spaces while contributing to sustainable home design, the York Affinity furnaces are a great choice,” said Liz Haggerty, vice president and general manager, Unitary Products Group, Johnson Controls.

Both units are conveniently compact and stand at just 33 inches, making them the ideal solution for applications where space is limited, including closets, attics and basements with low ceilings. Homeowners who install one of the furnaces in their homes will also appreciate the unit’s quiet operation.

These York Affinity furnaces are ENERGY STAR® qualified and come with a lifetime limited warranty on the heat exchanger from Johnson Controls. All other model components include a 10-year limited warranty.

York  products from Johnson Controls include energy-efficient, residential central air conditioners, heat pumps, furnaces and accessories and innovative light-commercial, packaged heating and cooling systems marketed through a national distribution network and delivered to home- and building-owners through qualified York heating and cooling contractors.
