MILWAUKEE — Johnson Controls Inc. will celebrate the grand opening of three new Source 1 HVAC Supply Centers in Maryland and Virginia this spring. Source 1 is the exclusive supplier of factory authorized service parts and residential accessories for all Johnson Controls Unitary Products residential and light commercial HVAC equipment.

Stores will open at the following locations: 9331 Philadelphia Road Suite A. Rosedale, Maryland, 21037 — grand opening was April 17; 7020 Dorsey Road Suite A. Hanover, Maryland, 21076 — grand opening scheduled for May 23; and 44900 Falcon Place Unit 9 Sterling, Virginia, 20166 — grand opening to be determined.

“We’re excited to offer contractors the benefits each of these stores offers, beginning with quick and easy access to HVAC parts,” said Ryan Spadaro, mid-Atlantic general manager, York Factory Direct. “By providing contractors with a conveniently located, single source for a comprehensive line of HVAC parts and systems, along with the tools and supplies necessary to install, maintain, and service equipment, the centers allow contractors to get in, get what they need, and get to the job site — eliminating wait time and improving efficiency and productivity.”

In addition to York, Guardian, and Source 1 products, the new supply centers will offer products from other HVAC manufacturers and a wide array of HVAC test instruments, tools, and supplies — everything from gauges, recovery equipment, and vacuum pumps to tape, filters, and pipe and electrical fittings. The supply centers will also give contractors the opportunity to tap into local training programs on York and Guardian equipment as well as HVAC and business fundamentals, like electricity, refrigeration, heating, financial analysis, and sales techniques.

“The technical expertise and training opportunities found at our stores provide another important resource to contractors,” said Tom Smid, Northeast area director, York Factory Direct. “In addition to unrivaled customer service, they offer industry experience and, in many cases, first-hand familiarity with the challenges contractors encounter in the field.”
