The York® commitment to building quality home comfort products has a long story behind it — over 135 years long, in fact. In 1874, a manufacturing company in York, Pennsylvania, began making ice machines as an alternative to shipping ice from the Great Lakes. The company — known as “York” — soon extended their expertise in refrigeration into other areas:
- In 1914, York installed in the Empire Theater in Montgomery, Alabama, a revolutionary comfort system called “air washing,” which eventually became known as air conditioning.
- In 1924, York® equipment was used to create the world’s first air-conditioned office building in Fresno, California.
- Today, York® products are heating and cooling some of the world’s most famous structures, including the Empire State Building, the English Chunnel, U.S. Capitol building and the Sydney Opera House.
Over the years, thousands of York® Dealers have installed that same York® quality in millions of homes throughout North America. Their training in proper installation and service ensure that you get unsurpassed comfort to improve the quality of your life.
