(FLORIDA) Hill York, Florida’s leading commercial air conditioning company, and Alerton, an innovative manufacturer of building control systems, have teamed up to give Florida facility owners the power to create more comfortable environments while reducing energy use.
Since joining Alerton’s global network of more than 150 dealers last year, Hill York has increased its controls offerings in South Florida’s tri-county region. There, the company is authorized to sell and implement Alerton and other manufacturer building control systems for clients needing support with new construction, retrofit, service and energy management projects.
“We share Alerton’s commitment to help clients get the best comfort and energy performance out of their buildings,” said Rob Pulsifer, Hill York Vice President – Building Solutions. “Giving building owners the flexibility to harness new and improved control technologies utilizing an open communication platform is an empowering advantage for them and a strategic growth area for us.”
Alerton introduced the first complete BACnet control system, the building industry’s ASHRAE, ANSI, and ISO 16484-5 standard protocol. The BACnet communications protocol for building automation and control networks provides easy integration of HVAC controls with other building devices. These include meters, third- party equipment, and systems such as access, security, lighting, and fire/life safety.
With a long track record of leadership in helping Florida building owners improve comfort and energy management, Hill York’s in-house expertise includes Alerton-certified controls engineers and Alerton-trained field technicians with over 20 years of experience. The team has installed and integrated many control systems from leading manufacturers, including Johnson Controls, Siemens, Honeywell and Trend. Since partnering with Alerton, Hill York has implemented systems for such diverse Florida clients as:
- Nova Southeastern University
- Hospital Corporation of America (HCA)
- Dadeland Surgical Center
- Boca Corporate Center & Campus
- Salvation Army
- Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church
“Integrating building control systems brings everything into one manageable, expanding platform to meet the needs of clients well into the future,” Pulsifer noted. “With the integration Hill York and Alerton provides, the systems can be engineered to communicate through a common web-based interface, even across multiple buildings.”
For Florida building owners and facilities managers, the Hill York – Alerton alliance provides the ultimate control system payback: Maximum performance for a minimal up-front cost with a single platform that supports easier operation and less staff training.
