To achieve global decarbonization, it’s critical to improve building energy efficiency
Jeff Williams adds, “The AHR Expo 2022 brings together a collection of our latest and most advanced products that help create smarter, healthier and more sustainable spaces around the world.”
Buildings account for an estimated 40% of U.S. emissions. To achieve global decarbonization, it’s critical to improve building energy efficiency, deploy more environmentally sustainable products and electrify building end uses like heating.
Johnson Controls is committed to driving continual advancements in HVAC technology that enable a more sustainable future while ensuring compliance with government regulations, including the Department of Energy (DOE) 2023 energy efficiency standards and the industry’s low-GWP refrigerant transition.
Johnson Controls Choice Rooftop Unit
The new 15-ton Johnson Controls Choice Rooftop Unit with a heat pump feature and the YORK HMH7 17 SEER Horizontal Discharge Heat Pump, which are already DOE 2023 compliant, will be featured at AHR, along with other high-efficiency systems and a broad portfolio of building products, technologies, software and services designed to support digital transformation, sustainability, healthy buildings and security.
The latest in Johnson Controls building automation and controls technology is designed to digitally transform environments in support of occupant health, safety and comfort. They include:
New next-generation, IP-enabled equipment controllers as part of the Metasys and Facility Explorer Building Automation Systems provide highly resilient and flexible building networks.
The Metasys Pandemic Dashboard uses preprogrammed building sequences to achieve negative pressurization and help convert standard hospital patient rooms into isolation rooms.
New features in the TEC3000 Series Thermostat allow configuration of epidemic control ventilation mode and critical environment controls, such as touchscreen monitors and Venturi air valves, and manage room pressurization, air changes, temperature and relative humidity.
OpenBlue Digital Solutions
Cutting-edge OpenBlue digital solutions harness data collected from the building automation and controls solutions, delivering valuable, actionable insights. They include:
OpenBlue Enterprise Manager proactively analyzes building data across an enterprise and leverages industry-first AI to optimize for sustainability, comfort, and maintenance costs.
OpenBlue Companion provides a next-generation, in-building experience for tenants and visitors, improving occupant engagement and productivity.
OpenBlue Central Utility Plant monitors thousands of variables from buildings’ connected equipment and external sources, such as weather forecasts and utility rates, and sends commands to turn equipment on and off or adjust control set points in real-time, in order to minimize energy costs.
Smart Connected Chillers enables remote monitoring and digital-enabled service, from anywhere, to predict when a chiller needs service, increasing uptime, and reliability.
