The new YVAG for residences in China incorporates Johnson Controls’ proven heat pump and controls technology

SHANGHAI, China – June 20, 2016 – Johnson Controls introduces its first YORK® heat pump, YVAG, for the residential market in China. Condominiums, villas and small commercial buildings can now enjoy energy-efficient cooling and heating using a single appliance, saving capital and operational costs.

The air-cooled YVAG has a cooling capacity of 11.2 kW to 18 kW and an Integrated Part Load Value[1] (IPLV) of 4.3, exceeding the national requirement of 3.8 for buildings. The high energy efficiency is achieved through YVAG’s inverter technology that optimizes system operations for the variable electrical load of the building.

The YVAG delivers Johnson Controls’ proven Heating, Ventilation, Air-conditioning (HVAC) and controls technology in a cost-effective package to residences. Its key benefits include:

  • Creates a comfortable indoor environment throughout the year across China as it can operate in a wide ambient temperature range from as low as -20℃ to as high as 48℃.
  • Can be connected to the floor heating system directly without any additional conversion device.
  • Equipped with intelligent controls and can be easily connected to smart home systems.

With the YVAG, home owners and developers of small commercial properties have more options. The YVAG complements the Johnson Controls’ current lineup of Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) products and other unitary products. The entire lineup uses R410A, which is safe and efficient, without any phase out date; and features quiet operations as well as ease of maintenance.

With more than 130 years of experience in HVAC products and services, Johnson Controls has the widest range of chillers and heat pumps globally, while continuing to expand its product portfolio in the residential market. With its unique combination of expertise in HVAC and building controls systems, the company offers building owners and developers integrated solutions best tailored for each building’s unique needs.
