Johnson Controls, a Fortune 100 company, is a global diversified technology and multi- industrial corporation serving a wide range of customers in more than 150 countries. Headquartered in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Johnson Controls is a provider of equipment and controls for heating, ventilating, air conditioning and refrigeration. The company’s 130,000 employees create intelligent buildings, energy efficiency solutions, integrated infrastructure and transportation systems. The company had global net sales of approximately $30 billion in 2017.
Johnson’s beginnings trace back to 1883, when Warren S. Johnson received a patent for the first electric room thermostat. A group of investors in Milwaukee would back Johnson’s formation of the Johnson Electric Service Co. in 1885 to make and install automatic building temperature regulation systems. The company was renamed the Johnson Service Company in 1902 and in 1974 took on its current name, Johnson Controls. Johnson Controls purchased York International in 2005, doubling its Building division.
Today, the residential heating and air conditioning brands, falling under the Unitary Products Group within Johnson Controls, include YORK, Coleman HVAC, Luxaire, Champion, Guardian, Fraser-Johnston and Evcon.
York’s lineup of residential gas furnaces is divided into three series – Affinity, LX and Latitude. The LX series of high-efficiency furnaces includes the TM9V and the TM9E, which are both Energy Star rated. The York Affinity YP9C furnace has an efficiency of up to 98% AFUE and has earned the Energy Star Most Efficient 2014 label.
HVAC parts include actuators, dampers, valves, sensors, thermostats, heating products, variable speed drives, and personal heating and cooling tools. Other products include air- and water-cooled chillers, central air-handling equipment and condensing units as well as a variety of variable air volume, or VAV, systems.
York furnaces are covered by a 10-year parts warranty and a lifetime heat exchanger warranty on the Affinity and the LX series. The Latitude series has a 20-year heat exchanger warranty (except for model TG9S, which has a lifetime warranty). Online product registration is required within 90 days of installation for maximum warranty coverage.
