Multi-family and commercial buildings
Gas heat pumps use a heat source to drive a refrigeration cycle that transfers heat between indoor and outdoor environments. The heat source is typically natural gas, but hydrogen, renewable natural gas and other fuels are also possible.
One of the main advantages of commercial gas heat pumps is their versatility – they can provide heating, cooling and hot water all in one box.
Gas heat pumps are efficiency champions — achieving annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) ratings ranging from 120% to 140%. This boost in efficiency can reduce HVAC costs by up to 50% over existing equipment.
Gas heat pumps can reduce a building’s CO2 emissions by 50% or more on day one when powered by natural gas. However, today’s gas heat pumps are compatible with a variety of fuels and can achieve net zero emissions when powered by hydrogen, renewable natural gas and other net zero fuels.
Wide range of applications
Commercial gas heat pumps are suitable for a wide range of applications, including multi-family buildings, office buildings, retail spaces, schools, and other commercial buildings.
Gas heat pump systems can integrate into a building’s existing HVAC infrastructure (plumbing, ductwork, radiators, fan coil units, etc.) without requiring extensive, costly upgrades. This provides an energy-efficient and cost-effective solution for building owners looking to upgrade their systems.

Trainings and Webinars
Did you know that the fastest and most cost-effective pathway to a clean energy future depends on solutions from both electric and gas utilities? Achieving net-zero emissions while delivering safe, reliable, affordable energy requires a combination of decarbonization solutions, especially in geographic regions that experience extreme temperature swings. This course will discuss the concept of gas decarbonization and how it complements the ongoing efforts to decarbonize the electric grid. The course will also highlight the importance of an “all-solutions” approach and introduce emerging gas decarbonization technologies under development and on the market today.

A tried-and-true technology in Europe and Asia, today’s residential gas heat pumps use a heat source to drive an ammonia-water absorption cycle that move heat between indoor and outdoor environments. The heat source is typically natural gas, but hydrogen, renewable natural gas and other fuels are also possible.
Gas heat pumps redefine efficiency, as they harness the power of outdoor ambient air and natural gas to achieve efficiencies up to 140% AFUE. Your customers will enjoy a heating and cooling system that surpasses industry standards.
Similar to commercial gas heat pumps, residential gas heat pumps can reduce a home’s CO2 emissions by 50% or more on day one when powered by natural gas. However, today’s gas heat pumps are compatible with a variety of fuels and can achieve net zero emissions when powered by hydrogen, renewable natural gas and other net zero fuels.
Superior cold climate performance
Gas heat pumps are the best-in-class heating option in cold climates. They provide reliable and efficient heating and domestic hot water even at temperatures as cold as minus 40 degrees Fahrenheit without requiring a backup heat source. Your customers’ homes will be equipped with cutting-edge technology to ensure consistent and comfortable living year-round.
Gas heat pumps can reduce a customer’s heating bills by 50% or more. The same unit can be configured to also meet the home’s hot water needs and unlock additional savings. Future residential heat pumps models will have to option to provide efficient cooling in addition to space and water heating.
Integrate into existing homes
Gas heat pumps are a versatile retrofit solution. They can integrate with existing ductwork to heat via forced air, and they can also be set up for hydronic heating and make use of a home’s existing radiators, radiant floors, etc. This makes gas heat pumps the ideal replacement for furnaces and boilers alike.
