Customers are switching to gas cooling to ensure that when the lights go out, their air conditioners stay on – Learn more .
  • Sustainability
    Cutting out the highly inefficient electric power generation system and transmission lines increases the sustainability of the climate control experience by reducing water consumption and overall carbon footprint. The Sierra Gas Heat Pump has helped energy efficient buildings achieve LEED and other leading environmental certifications.

The Sierra Gas heat pump uses a Natural Gas powered “car-like”, internal combustion engine to turn the air conditioner's mechanical parts. These units have been on the market in the United States since 2005, and many of our customers realize savings of over 80% of their air conditioning costs by switching to gas cooling. Savings will vary by location, demand, and utility costs.
