Having a direct point of contact with York National Accounts gives centers a single source not only for pricing but also with project management, billing, jobsite scheduling and warranty service.

Centers can order directly from YORK or have their local installer place the order.  To place an order, call 1-800-481-9738 – select option 2 for a price quote, then select option "4" for Joe Ray or option "8" for Walt Jacobe.  It is important that the caller is clear on what type of unit needed as there are many types.

Then after that bid is submitted, the center should seek the YORK price with our program. This will expose the labor bid and won't allow a contractor to increase labor if he can't mark up the equipment
