Johnson Controls focuses on topics at AHR EXPO


MILWAUKEE – The Johnson Controls team will address the biggest challenges facing the global HVAC industry with a range of new products and solutions at AHR Expo 2022 (Booth C1336) January 31-February 2 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The Johnson Controls exhibit focuses on the importance of connectivity and innovation to solve today’s built environment challenges and reaffirms its commitment to helping customers achieve their energy efficiency and sustainability goals through the latest AI and digital technologies .

“In the face of the twin crises of the pandemic and climate change, technology is more important than ever,” said Jeff Williams, President of Global Products at Johnson Controls. “We need to rethink the way buildings are operated, and Johnson Controls today has the technology to help its customers navigate this global effort. AHR Expo 2022 brings together a collection of our newest and most advanced products that are helping to create smarter, healthier and more sustainable spaces around the world.”

Buildings are responsible for an estimated 40% of US emissions. In order to achieve global decarbonization, it is crucial to improve the energy efficiency of buildings, deploy greener products and electrify building end-uses such as heating. Johnson Controls is committed to driving continued advances in HVAC technology that enable a more sustainable future while ensuring compliance with government regulations, including the Department of Energy’s (DOE) 2023 energy efficiency standards and the industry’s transition to low-GWP refrigerants.

Johnson Controls Choice’s new 15 tonne rooftop heat pump and York HMH7 17 SEER horizontal discharge heat pump, which are already DOE 2023 Compliant, will be showcased at AHR alongside other high-efficiency systems and a broad portfolio of building products, technologies, software and services designed to support digital transformation, sustainability, healthy buildings and safety.

Other products on display include new IP-enabled controllers in the Metasys and Facility Explorer building automation systems.
