View Full Version : Small Footprint unit: York [mc2].
10-03-2008, 09:46 PM
I need to replace my old system, and do not want to extend too far into the patio space, where the units are unfortunately located. Does anyone have experience with the York Latitude [mc2]? It is 23.5 " square up to 3 tons. I can't find details of noise levels, but one York dealer gives it 3 "ear" icons, where the top of the York line gets one. I will need a 2.5 or 3 ton unit for now, and a 4 ton probably at a later stage to sit next to it., which is 29" square.
The Carrier side blowing unit won't work for us.

76 dBA sound rating for the TCGD30 (2.5 tons, R-410A). Shouldn't be real loud, but not the quietest. I'm not a sound expert (so someone else can tell you if it would be acceptable by a patio), and sound is a perceived quality.
69 dBA for the CZB030 (2.5 tons, R-410A), but this is from the Affinity line, which is very quiet.
These are the air conditioners, not heat pumps (heat pumps have bigger footprint in MC2 product line).

How about reliability? I have had a Rheem dealer say that there were problems with the MicroChannels of the York unit.

Gee. That's funny. I've been around York for a couple of years now. No microchannel coil leaks. Your Rheem dealer should be scratched from the list. If you can't sell yourself without discrediting others, I won't do business with you.

I have found them to be very reliable, but not as quiet as i would want on my patio. That said you could always turn off the air while enjoying the patio.

Yeah, I didn't like that guy anyway. I got a personal recommendation on another guy who came over and is not brand specific. My situation is complicated in that the developer put 2 units in the yard rather than at the side of the house, and I've always wanted to relocate them for the past 19 years. Now that the upstairs system needs replacing, and never worked efficiently anyway, I may take the opportunity to relocate one or two new systems, depending on how many $$$... There are all kinds of logistic issues, but this guy is knowledgeable. We may go for the larger York, since we have space at the side of the house.
