Absorption Heat Pump Information

Gas Absorption Heat Pumps are the perfect solution for commercial, non-profits, multi-unit residential or institutional building owners looking to reduce their energy usage and costs. This sustainable and highly efficient system is designed to provide optimal water heating and space heating/cooling while minimizing your environmental footprint. 


Currently FortisBC offers up to $20,000 in rebates for feasibility studies to examine whether or not the gas absorption heat pump system will work in your building. 

Upon a successful study, FortisBC will cover 75% of the total project costs, up to $200,000 

This program is a great way to upgrade your building's heating and cooling systems while saving money in the process. Contact us today to get started.

How Does It Work

Gas absorption heat pumps work in a similar design to common electric heat pumps. However instead of using a compressor to transfer vapour refrigerant, GAHP's utilize a low power pump to transfer liquid refrigerant. By this method, there is very low power consumption, and an efficiency that can be as high as 150%.
