Johnson Controls unveils residential leasing program for HVAC

Written on: December 7, 2021 by ICM

Johnson Controls has launched Ultimate Home Comfort, a 10-year residential HVAC leasing program in partnership with Fundient Capital LLC. The program bundles a new, fully installed YORK HVAC system – including high-efficiency models – with 10 years of annual maintenance and service, plus a 10-year parts and labor warranty for one low, monthly payment. The program is being offered through the YORK brand of Johnson Controls.

High-efficiency YORK home comfort systems, provided through the Ultimate Home Comfort program, can save families up to 53% annually on a home’s energy costs compared to older, less efficient (10 SEER) systems, according to the company. Units available through the program include air conditioners, gas furnaces and environmentally sustainable electric heat pumps, which provide both heating and cooling to a home.

With Ultimate Home Comfort:

  • the large, upfront investment typically associated with high-efficiency HVAC systems is eliminated,
  • home comfort becomes more sustainable and available to a wider range of Americans and
  • reduces households’ energy consumption and carbon footprint.

“Our customers are increasingly interested in reducing their household’s energy usage and carbon footprint. Ultimate Home Comfort addresses these needs by providing an affordable, energy-efficient solution that’s easier to manage with no up-front costs,” said Doug Schuster, VP & GM, Ducted Systems, Johnson Controls. “Meeting the growing demand for environmental sustainability is a fundamental goal for Johnson Controls, which aims to reduce its customers’ emissions by 16% by 2030. The creation of Ultimate Home Comfort is one of the many ways we can help achieve this goal.”

As part of the program, YORK contractors install a new HVAC system – which are part of the Johnson Controls OpenBlue connected suite of technologies – with no upfront costs to the homeowner. The contractor will also service the system over the program’s 10-year term, with parts, labor and maintenance covered under the bundled solution that also establishes a trusted contractor relationship for 10 years. Through the Fundient Capital app, homeowners can be prequalified easily within moments, and second-look leasing is available through Atwood Rentals.
