    Johnson Controls to Focus on Issues at AHR EXPO

    Jan. 26, 2022
    Booth visitors during the AHR EXPO will learn how connected solutions can facilitate occupant wellness, track energy usage and system efficiency and help reach sustainability goals.

    MILWAUKEE –  The Johnson Controls team will address the worldwide HVAC industry’s top challenges with an array of new products and solutions at the 2022 AHR Expo (booth C1336) Jan. 31 through Feb. 2 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The Johnson Controls exhibit will focus on the importance of connectivity and innovation to solve today’s built-environment challenges, reinforcing its commitment to helping customers reach their energy efficiency and sustainability goals through the latest AI and digital technologies.

    “As we face the twin crises of the pandemic and climate change, technology is more critical than ever,” said Jeff Williams, president of Global Products at Johnson Controls. “We must rethink how buildings operate, and Johnson Controls has the technology today to help its customers navigate this global effort. The 2022 AHR Expo 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.

    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. 

    Other products to be on display include new IP-enabled controllers in the Metasys and Facility Explorer Building Automation Systems.

    Cutting-edge OpenBlue digital solutions harness data collected from the building automation and controls solutions, delivering valuable, actionable insights.
