SINGAPORE – July 2, 2013 – Johnson Controls, the global leader in delivering solutions that increase energy efficiency in buildings, introduces a new variable refrigerant flow (VRF) system to Asia, the YORK® YES Series DC inverter. The product brings many benefits to both commercial and residential building owners, including energy savings, comfort, wide ambient range, versatility and smart control.
YORK® YES Series has one of the highest Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER) of up to 4.0 and Integrated Part Load Value (IPLV) approaching 6.0, helping building owners achieve substantial energy savings. EER is a measure of the ratio of cooling output to electrical power input at full load, while IPLV is the measure at various operating capacities.
“We understand our customers’ needs for higher quality HVAC solutions as well as greater energy efficiency due to rising electricity costs in many parts of Asia such as China and Indonesia," said Chuah Cheng Huat, Director of HVAC for Johnson Controls Building Efficiency Asia.
The wide ambient temperature range enables YORK® YES Series to operate under extreme weather conditions – as low as -20°C for heating and as high as 52°C for cooling – making it suitable for the different climates across Asia. It also offers greater comfort as users can set the temperature of each room individually.
Furthermore, YORK® YES Series is versatile with unparalleled flexibility for installation, commissioning, and product software selection. The comprehensive suite of smart control solutions include touch screen wired controllers, central controllers, smart home connection and building automation systems featuring Johnson Controls’ Metasys® Building Management System.
YES Series was developed based on three decades of pioneering work in inverter technology by YORK®. At the recent high-profile China Refrigeration Expo held in Shanghai, YES Super DC inverter VRF system garnered the new product award. This commitment to quality and innovation is further supported by the expansion of Johnson Controls’ Guangzhou factory to increase manufacturing capacity for VRF and conduct advanced research and development for this technology.
