YORK INTERNATIONAL ANNOUNCES ENHANCED WARRANTY ON HEATPIPE FURNACE

 YORK, Pa., Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- York International Corporation (NYSE: YRK) today announced an enhanced warranty program to replace its HeatPipe furnaces.
 Some of the HeatPipe furnaces have experienced problems, including premature failures of the exchangers and deterioration of the vent systems. This deterioration could allow leakage of potentially hazardous carbon monoxide into the home. York, a leading world wide manufacturer in the heating/air conditioning/refrigeration industry, manufactured the HeatPipe furnaces between 1984 and 1988 under the brand names Luxaire/Fraser-Johnston/Moncrief (models PAUT-08N073, PAUT-12N073, PAUT-12N105 and PAUT-16N105); and Borg Warner (models P1NUDO8N06301, P1NUD12N06301, P1NUD12N08901 and P1NUD16N08901). York estimates approximately 4,000 HeatPipe furnaces are still in use.
 Under the enhanced warranty program, owners may exchange their HeatPipe furnaces for free new furnaces of similar capacity and efficiency ratings. The new furnace will come with a factory warranty commencing on the date of installation. Replacement of the HeatPipe furnaces will require inspection and replacement of some or all of the furnaces' venting systems. York will provide a $200 allowance toward installation costs.
 York urges all customers to participate in the HeatPipe replacement program. York is sending a letter to all identifiable owners of the HeatPipe furnaces explaining the warranty program and emphasizing the need to inspect the furnace and perform any necessary repair work.
 York reminds owners of all types of furnaces to inspect their furnaces before the heating season begins, for proper functioning. Owners should check the vent system for corrosion or openings through which carbon monoxide could leak. Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas that can cause serious illness or death. A qualified dealer should make any necessary adjustments or repairs.
