York Y9USC09-6A Pros and Cons

While there are tons of aircon brands in the Philippines that offer multiple features for each of their models, at the end of the day what Filipinos really look for is a dependable cooling solution that will last years. In that case, you’d be looking for a brand that’s proven that it has staying power— one that has decades of service, quality, and reliability.

Although brands like Mitsubishi, Samsung, and Panasonic, and LG have those qualities, Asian manufacturers aren’t your only option. In fact, it’s high time we looked at a brand that’s proven its worth over half a world away. That brand is York.

Historical Renown

While York might not necessarily be a household name in the Philippine aircon market, it’s a brand that’s well renowned in the U.S. In fact, it’s one of the oldest aircon brands around, and was integral in the development of home cooling technologies.

Founded in 1874, York products are now used to cool some of the most famous buildings and structures in the world. These include the Empire State Building, the U.S. Capitol Building, and the Sydney Opera House. Its pedigree is undeniable, and the company even provided the equipment for the world’s first air-conditioned office building in 1924. With products designed, engineered, and manufactured in the United States, York promises consumers around the world top-class American engineering and quality.

Simple and Efficient

There are several aircon types, each with their own benefits. However, if you’re looking for a simple yet effective cooling solution in the Philippines, then chances are you’re deciding on a window type aircon. Whether you have a window type inverter aircon or a window type non-inverter, you can rest assured that you’re getting a model that’s easy to install and operate. Most households in the Philippines are already fitted with slots for window aircons, making installation easy and painless no matter if you’re living in a standalone house or a condominium unit.

York Y9USC09-6A Specs

The York Y9USC09-6A is an air conditioner that’s powerful, efficient, yet easy to operate. All York cooling systems are designed and manufactured in the United States, so you can rest assured that you’re getting incredible quality that will last a lifetime. If that’s not enough to convince you, then here’s a quick and easy look at some of the Y9USC09-6A’s specs below.

Power Cooling

In a country like the Philippines, where temperatures can regularly climb to 35°C and beyond, you need a powerful cooler to keep your home comfortable during the hotter months. The Y9USC09-6A does just that. At 1.0 HP, it can easily cool up to 22sqm of space. With a cooling capacity of 9,500 Btu/h and power consumption at around 1000 W, it has an EER of around 10.3 Btu/h.w. This allows users to enjoy efficient yet powerful cooling, no matter what the weather.

Convenient Comfort

With its in-built inverter technology, you can look forward to great savings on your electricity bill. However, that’s not all that the AH-XS15VF has going for it. It’s also got a 12-hour on and off timer, allowing you to keep your home cooler throughout the day more conveniently.

Easy Installation

The York Y9USC09-6A is a window type aircon, which means that it’s relatively easier to install compared with a split type aircon. At 53.5 x 45 x 34.6cm, it’s compact and fits easily within most window type aircon slots. You don’t have to pay for expensive installation fees and wait for a team to do the work for you. Its slide-in and slide-out chassis makes the process faster and easier, and even allows you to do future maintenance without any fuss.

Washable Filter

Cleaning is part of regular aircon maintenance, but it’s often misunderstood or delayed. In congested urban areas, figuring out how and when to clean your unit can be a big concern, especially if you don’t have the time to set an appointment with a professional. Luckily, the Y9USC09-6A has a washable one-touch filter and easy to remove panel that makes cleaning easy and painless. This allows you to clean your unit more regularly, ensuring that it performs just as well as it did on the day you first bought it.

Improved Quality of Life

All of York’s products are designed and manufactured in the United States. This means that buyers can rest assured that their units are engineered with the highest possible quality. There are no shortcuts when it comes to a York aircon. If you choose to invest in one, you can look forward to years of quality cooling. Plus, the Y9USC09-6A also comes with a one-year local supplier warranty, so you don’t have to worry about any mishaps in your first year of use.

If you want a simple yet reliable aircon unit that’s manufactured with quality, then the York Y9USC09-6A is just what you’re looking for. While it might not have the range of features available in more advanced units, it does what it’s meant to do well.

At around Php 16,000, it’s a little higher than the usual window type aircon price, but buyers can rest assured that they’re paying for U.S. manufacturing and quality parts. While general maintenance is easy, one downside is that there aren’t very many service centers available for the brand. With quality engineering and design and a year-long warranty, however, buyers can still rest assured that their units will last.

Energy Efficiency
Cooling Power


With simple yet powerful cooling, the York Y9USC09-6A is a great choice for buyers who want to keep cool with none of the frills. Although a little pricier than most standard window type units, it's fully U.S.-made, so Filipino consumers can look forward to top quality for years to come.
