American Quality Backed by Decades of Experience

Quality You Can Count On

Investing in a YORK® home comfort systems means investing in a history of quality that began over 140 years ago. That history continues to inform the decisions we make today and helps ensure a focus on quality at every stage, with every product.

A Legacy of Innovation

Founded in 1874, YORK® has been an industry leader since the beginning. A revolutionary YORK® "air washing" system installed in 1914 was the precursor to modern-day air conditioning. In 1924, the world’s first air-conditioned office building used YORK® equipment. And today, YORK® products are heating and cooling some of the world's most iconic structures, including the Empire State Building, the English Chunnel, the U.S. Capitol Building and the Sydney Opera House.

An Investment in Quality

In 2006, YORK® became a brand of Johnson Controls – a Fortune 100 company and a leader in world-class manufacturing. This has allowed us to invest in industry-leading research and development to deliver a wide range of products built with world-class quality. In fact, YORK® home comfort systems undergo performance and reliability testing that is unmatched in our industry, ensuring energy savings and lasting performance for years to come.

A Commitment From the Heart

Exceeding customer expectations requires continual advances and attention to detail. So, when it comes to operations and facilities, we believe there’s no place like home – to build something for yours. Designing, engineering and assembling your York® heating and cooling unit in the United States ensures we can closely  monitor and improve processes that directly affect quality. It takes more than just metal and circuitry to make a York® heating and cooling unit. It takes people of integrity from right here in the heart of America.
