More than half of U.S. commercial building space is cooled by packaged HVAC equipment, according to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). So it comes as no surprise that energy efficiency is the biggest trend driving the rooftop market.
Johnson Controls is showing its latest York® commercial rooftop units that allow contractors to deliver high-quality heating and cooling solutions without spending a lot of time and money on installation.
