Split convenience. Geothermal comfort.

The York® Affinity™ YAZ is a split configuration geothermal heat pump that’s perfect for homes where package units are difficult to install - like an attic or a crawlspace. When used with a remote air handler or existing fossil fuel furnace, you can enjoy the many benefits of geothermal heating and cooling without the space requirements of normal systems.


The YAZ is designed for use where other units are difficult to install, like crawl spaces or attics. By connecting to a SAH air handler, you can condition your home efficiently and comfortably. In colder climates, pair the split with a fossil fuel furnace. The system automatically selects the most efficient heating method for maximum savings.

Cost effective

Geothermal heat pumps are so efficient that any added cost over traditional equipment is usually recovered in just a few years. And because they have a lifespan of 20-25 years, your investment will last longer and your return on investment will grow year by year.


Geothermal heat pumps are much more efficient than traditional heating and cooling systems. The York® Affinity™ YAZ is rated with an efficient 25.3 EER and 4.4 COP, which makes it a great option for your home.

Environmentally responsible

Since our units don’t burn expensive, polluting fossil fuels, they’re the most environmentally responsible options available today. Replacing a furnace and/or air conditioner with geothermal can minimize acid rain threats, air pollution, and the greenhouse effect.


No combustion or flames are used to operate a geothermal heat pump, making it a safe choice for your home and family. Our systems merely move heat to and from the ground rather than by burning natural gas, propane, or oil.

Affordable peace of mind

York® Affinity™ YAZ units come with warranties up to 10 years for parts and labor allowances. Other options are available, so see your York® Contractor for details.

SAH Air Handler

The SAH Air Handler has been engineered to work seamlessly with your York® split system and will provide years of efficient quiet comfort. It fits easily into any attic or crawlspace and comes standard with a variable speed ECM blower motor for maximum savings.

Dual Capacity Compressor

YAZ units are available with single or dual capacity compressors. Dual capacity units operate at two speeds rather than simply turning “on.” The low setting is more energy efficient and handles the heating and cooling needs of the house about 80% of the time. Units run in this mode for longer periods, which provides lower utility bills, quieter operation, better humidity control and more even temperatures throughout the home.


Lengthen the life of your system with the optional soft starter. This technology reduces the stress and sound associated with start-up, reduces light flicker and decreases start-up amperage by up to 70%.

Split Configuration

Pair the split with a second floor air handler or an existing fossil fuel furnace for flexible installation options.

Coated Coaxial Heat Exchanger

Our proprietary coating protects against condensation at temperatures below 50ºF and extends the life of the coaxial heat exchanger.

Hot Water Generation

This option preheats water and delivers it to your water heater. The longer the unit operates, the greater the amount of hot water generated.

Aurora Controls

Aurora provides two-way communication between components, advanced operating logic and powerful troubleshooting capabilities. It constantly monitors and optimizes the operation of your unit and provides detailed status information when using our communicating thermostats.

Aurora Interface Diagnostic (AID) port

This external port connects to the AID Tool and provides contractors a high degree of set-up and troubleshooting—right from the palm of their hand. Use of the AID Tool saves you and your contractor time and money.


A professional grade powder-coat finish provides long-lasting beauty and protection. The unit is fully insulated with cleanable foil-backed insulation that ensures quiet operation.


All York® geothermal units utilize R-410A refrigerant, which is friendly to the environment.
