Advanced York® Direct Fit(TM) Rooftop Replacement Solution Features New Packaged Heat Pump; Offers Smart Controls, Simplified Installation and Remote Monitoring

MILWAUKEE – The York Direct Fit rooftop replacement solution from Johnson Controls now includes a full line of 3- to 8.5-ton packaged heat pumps. Like other products in the Direct Fit series, the heat pumps feature an exact-fit replacement design that matches the units to footprints of other manufacturers’ units and reduces installation time, cost and complexity by eliminating the need for a curb adapter.

York has designed Direct Fit systems to be the industry’s easiest to install and maintain. Simplicity Smart Equipment (SE) Controls, for example, make system setup, optimization and monitoring far easier than older, electromechanical controls. This next generation control system is a standard feature on all Direct Fit gas/electric, electric/electric and heat pump packaged and commercial split system configurations.

The system’s advanced design also offers an optional Mobile Access Portal (MAP) Gateway that provides access to the SE control system using a smartphone, tablet, laptop or remote PC. An optional Fault Detection and Diagnostics (FDD) saves contractors time by providing detailed alerts if issues arise, and quick ship options improve product availability.

Additional features of the new heat pumps include adjustable defrost and three heat capacities, two cabinet heights and footprint sizes and a choice of cooling or electric heat configurations.
