YORK Introduces New 14 SEER, Single-Stage Heat Pumps
The YORK® brand of Johnson Controls is extending its LX Series of products with the introduction of a new single-stage heat pump. The YORK YEE heat pump offers 14 SEER cooling and 8.2 HSPF heating efficiency performance. The economical systems can provide heat down to an outdoor temperature of 0º F and cooling up to 125º F, making it an ideal year-round comfort solution, especially for southern U.S. climates.
“We designed the new heat pump with today’s homeowners in mind who are looking for efficient HVAC systems at a lower price point,” said Ken Ely, product manager, Residential Ducted Systems. “Beyond offering lower upfront costs, the YEE can reduce annual energy bills by 14% when replacing older low-efficiency systems. The compact design allows for further cost savings for homeowners and time savings for contractors by allowing the reuse of existing system pads, making it ideal for retrofit applications.”
The YEE was specifically optimized to be paired with indoor equipment, such as air handlers and gas furnaces, that use electronically communicated motors. The systems are dual fuel compatible, meaning that when paired with a gas furnace, it can automatically switch between electric, gas and heat pump heat, based on whichever is most efficient, resulting in additional cost savings. In addition, an advanced defrost system provides more even temperatures and reduces energy use.
The systems feature a large electrical box cover, offering contractors easy access to components. The electrical box can swing open to provide full corner access to the interior of the unit for easier maintenance or service without going through the top of the unit. In addition, a two-piece extruded louver coil guard provides superior coil protection while being easy to remove and reinstall for annual coil cleaning.
YEE heat pumps are backed by industry-leading one-year labor warranties and 10-year limited parts warranties with registration for greater peace of mind. The YEE cabinet is made of heavy-gauge galvanized steel with an automotive-grade powder-coat finish, providing a clean look and long-lasting corrosion protection.
