York Prestige Rooftop IBJohnson Controls launched a new line of York® commercial rooftop units that allow contractors to continue to deliver high-quality heating and cooling solutions to their customers without spending a lot of time and money on installation. With an exact-fit replacement design, the new York® Prestige™ rooftop units match the footprints of other manufacturers’ units. According to the company, the new design reduces installation complexities and saves contractors time by eliminating the need for a curb adapter, which is typically required when a new unit does not identically match the existing unit footprint.

“Installation of these new rooftop units is as easy as changing a tire on your car,” said Eric Newberg, director of commercial product management at Johnson Controls Unitary Products Group. “Contractors can remove the existing rooftop unit and set the new York unit within 15 minutes. The exact-fit replacement design means even the electrical and gas lines match up perfectly.”

The 3- to 12.5-ton York® Prestige ™ rooftop units are designed to include several features, such as advanced microprocessor control technology with an LED display; a programmable USB interface and digital diagnostic readouts; and a control that delivers information on unit status, start-up and commissioning that features, unit setup, supply, return and outdoor air temperatures and plug and play accessories. The units are available in 13 SEER, 10.8-11.2 EER or 15 SEER, 11.5-12.2 EER packaged rooftops. They also feature top panels that provide a durable, rigid cabinet for longevity and noise reduction.
