All the equipment is garbage now. It takes a qualified expert installer to make it lesser garbage. Bubba

Hmmm - check the Manufactuer's Unit label. The full charge is stated there. If you took the time, you could locate the leak [probably in the evaporator on the bottom] and seal it. Instead of screwing up the enviorment.

Actually, in the last 4-5 years, Goodman / Amana has come up to a "higher" level. Their warranty speaks loudly about their trust in their product. Although *Bubba* loves their evap. coils [makes extra $$$]. Where as York is offering "industry standard" warrnaty. I've heard though, if contractor's purchase the "extended warranty" the underwriter is paying street rates on repairs. That's a good thing!

the GY9 92% furnaces have had a lot of problems with the draft inducers. and the plastic drain pans on there evap coils are so cheesey if you sneeze on them they crack.i just dont think york is worth the money that you pay for it.

Consumer Reports said that central HVAC systems were generally very reliable, but York, Heil (we have one), and Goodman/Janitrol were among the worst. The best were Trane/American Standard and Rheem/Ruud
