Johnson Controls Redefines Reliability and Performance with All-new York Residential Split Systems

More than 125,000 hours of research, design and testing result in product that is 29 percent more efficient

MILWAUKEE – Johnson Controls, a global multi-industrial company, introduces a new line of York residential heating and air conditioning split systems that redefines reliability and performance—the result of more than 125,000 hours of customer research, product design and testing.

“This commitment to product innovation paid off in residential systems that optimize efficiency, simplify installation and servicing, and deliver the consistent product performance and reliability so important to a contractor’s reputation and bottom line,” said Liz Haggerty, vice president and general manager, Johnson Controls Unitary Products Group. “Every step of the way, we’re giving our contractors the products and support needed to install our York line with confidence.”

In addition to state-of-the-art quality control and assembly processes from Johnson Controls’ advanced manufacturing expertise, the company applied lab-verified quality testing procedures to the new product line, including five years of accelerated field testing, extreme weather testing (from 140°F down to -10°F) and salt spray testing to measure material corrosion, performance and durability.

The new residential split systems, including air conditioners, heat pumps and air handlers, meet 2015 U.S. Department of Energy efficiency standards and offer significant energy savings. Air conditioners with a 14 Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) are 29 percent more efficient than older 10 SEER models and are the first in a series of units that comprise a completely new, redesigned residential product family that will include units with a 21+ SEER. All the units are also rated in accordance with AHRI Standards 210/240 and meet relevant ASHRAE 90.1, EPACT 2005 and ENERGY STAR® standards.

In addition to exceptional energy efficiency, York residential split systems lead the industry with a contractor-friendly design that offers trouble-free installation, servicing and long-term operation. Design features include:

Smaller footprint to accommodate gates, hand trucks, vans and site pads

Easy top and side access to commonly serviced items

Indoor unit with front-mounted controls and slide-out blower

Outdoor unit with convenient, sealed, swing-out control box

Factory-installed liquid line filter drier

Conveniently located service valves

Sturdy, flat fan guard design that resists dents

Smooth edges for easier handling

Standardized design that reduces complexity with fewer replacement parts contractors must carry in inventory and on service trucks.

Indoor and outdoor units designed for system optimization and precise matchups

The outdoor units reduce sound levels to 71 dBA, while an improved airtight indoor cabinet design meets strict 2 percent or less air leakage requirements. In addition, a corrosion- and rust-resistant coated finish on steel wire fan guards and external fasteners and pre-treated, G90-equivalent galvanized steel chassis components combine to enhance durability.

Contractors will also appreciate easy access to products and support teams for seamless business operation, as well as a comprehensive and competitive product portfolio that includes options at a variety of price points to meet a wider range of customer needs.
