New YORK® Absorption Chillers and Heat Pumps

Johnson Controls has launched the YORK absorption chiller and heat pumps. After successful deployment in Europe and Asian-Pacific countries, YORK is launching its absorption chillers and heat pumps in North America, expanding their portfolio of environmentally friendly heating and cooling solutions. The products use only a natural refrigerant (water) and are driven by waste or other low-cost heat sources.


York’s absorption chillers use only a natural refrigerant (water) and are driven by waste or other low-cost heat sources.

“Energy efficiency and sustainability are core elements of our vision and values,” said Clay Nesler, Vice President, Global Sustainability and Regulatory Affairs, Johnson Controls. “The YORK absorption chillers and heat pumps provide energy savings by using water as the refrigerant that yields zero ozone depletion and zero global warming potential. These units can use a variety of waste heat sources, increasing cooling and heating systems efficiency while reducing operating costs.”

The YORK absorption portfolio uses an innovative two-step evaporator-absorber / parallel flow design enabling a lower salt concentration, requiring less energy input. This results in increased reliability and energy efficiency compared to conventional designs.

“With electricity costs continuing to rise and lower cost natural gas more readily available, there is a renewed interest in combined heat and power (CHP) systems.” said Ian McGavisk, Vice President and General Manager, Global Chiller Products, Johnson Controls “Our absorption portfolio is optimized to integrate with CHP systems, and comfort and industrial process cooling in a clean and resilient way. The success of these units is backed by more than 50 years of innovation and experience in absorption technology.”

YORK absorption chillers are supported by an extensive service and parts network, with more than 100 locations throughout the United States. For more information on YORK absorption chillers and heat pumps, visit
