Unit Pricing

Like all unit cost comparisons at the AC Price Guide website, the York models below were priced using the most common size AC and coil. Each is based on a 2.5 ton outdoor condenser, with a matching indoor evaporator coil. None of our pricing includes an air handler or furnace inside the home. These are AC and cooling only systems, and the SEER ratings you see are based on the unit being matched to the correct evaporator coil and air handler.
