New Two-Stage Champion® Momentum™ Air Conditioner Delivers Peak Operational Performance

MILWAUKEE (July 3, 2018) – With the ability to save up to 47 percent on energy use compared to older 10 SEER models, the new 19 SEER, ENERGY STAR®-certified Champion® Momentum™ Series air conditioning unit from Johnson Controls was designed to meet the rigorous energy efficiency performance levels set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Available in 2-5 tons, the two-stage AL19 air conditioner can be sold as part of a complete Momentum residential system or as a premium upgrade to an existing system. This provides contractors and homeowners flexible options by matching it with either a variable-speed air handler or a standard ECM air handler. Matched equipment includes furnaces, coils and air handlers, all of which are optimized to work together, maximizing comfort and overall performance.

Units can be installed with a conventional two-stage thermostat or the communicating Wi-Fi®-enabled Momentum™ Hx™ Touch-screen Thermostat, which allows remote monitoring and diagnostics using the Hx™ Pro App. Unique to these systems is the ability to communicate with competitive controls, allowing for greater installation flexibility. Other features include:

  • A smaller footprint that allows the unit to fit into compact spaces without sacrificing performance.
  • An advanced ShadowDrive™ Sound Reduction system which includes swept-wing fan, high-efficiency ECM fan motor, sound enclosure and composite base for quiet, efficient air circulation.
  • A swing-open electrical box that provides full corner access to the inside of the unit for easy maintenance, installation and service.

Champion Momentum AL19 units include a 1-year Labor Limited Warranty, Lifetime Compressor Limited Warranty and 10-year Parts Limited Warranty on registered outdoor units.
