Rooftop Unit: Johnson Controls
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 company says its 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.
The units include the Simplicity Smart Equipment (SE) Controls that aim to make system setup, optimization, and monitoring 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 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. 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.
