Johnson Controls has launched a new York LX Series of air-conditioners and heat pumps with MicroChannel coil with 50% less refrigerant. The units are available with R-410A refrigerant as well as R-22.

14.5 SEER LX Series air-conditioners use a compressor blanket and swept-wing fan blade for reportedly quieter operation. 15+ SEER can be achieved when the air-conditioner is matched with a variable-speed air handler or gas furnace.

In addition, the MicroChannel coil reportedly offers better galvanic corrosion resistance than conventional coils. In testing, the coil withstood 7000 hours of salt spray with a higher success rate than conventional coils at just 1000 hours, making the units desirable for seacoast applications.
