York Furnace Ignitors

York Products and Services makes heating and cooling products through more than 20 manufacturing facilities worldwide, operating over 500 sales offices around the globe. A unit of the publicly traded Johnson Controls since December 2005, York's product line includes 10, 12, 14 and 16+ SEER air conditioners and heat pumps, single package units, 90%+ and 80% AFUE gas furnaces, matching air handlers and evaporator coils. Products are made in North America through plants in Oklahoma, Kansas and Mexico. York's distributors are augmented by a network of independent distributors that send the products through the United States and Canada, covering all states and provinces.

Ignitor Products

York offers a complete line of ignitor products engineered for simple installation. For example, a 240-volt ignitor includes a round glowbar design that offers greater ceramic mass to minimize breakage. The ignitor element itself features a double-helix design for greater ignition area. Designed for newer natural gas and propane forced-air furnaces as a source of ignition for the main burner. One online parts dealer notes that older York furnaces had many ignitor problems, and that the company recommends replacing the original ignitor with a York/Norton Mini Hot Surface Ignitor Conversion Kit, part #473-20937-001, which fits several Upflow and Downflow models with both 78%-AFUE and 90%-AFUE. More recent models use part #02532625000 to replace the spiral ignitor on a wide variety of York 80%-AFUE furnaces.

Company History

Founded in 1874 in York, Pensylvania, York Products and Services has not only provided heating and cooling for millions of private homes, as the company notes, but has also installed products domestically in the U.S. Capitol Building, the Bank of America building in San Francisco and the U.S. Navy's entire nuclear submarine fleet. York says its international projects have included the Kremlin, the Sydney Opera House and Britain's Houses of Parliament. Johnson Controls paid $3.2 billion to acquire York, then known as York International, in 2005. The company now operates as York Products and Services through the Johnson Controls Unitary Products division.

York's Warranty

York dealers will provide complete information on York's limited parts warranty. Ignitors purchased as repair parts are covered for one year from the date of installation, unless the manufacturer offers an extended warranty, which would then be honored. For its new units, York's standard coverage for ignitors is a year. However, York offers the YORKCare Comfort Plan, which provides complete parts and labor coverage for as long as 10 years. The plan is free of deductibles, and there is no limit on the number of repairs, which can be set up directly through a York dealer. Additionally, the YORKCare plan can be transferred to a new owner if you sell your home during the term of the coverage.
