Commercial HVAC System
The Commercial segment of our business is one of our most critical and effective markets for the natural gas heat pumps! As you can see in the many examples shown below, there are virtually no commercial market aspects that our equipment cannot be effective in. Example after example highlight the many positive attributes NextAire™ products can bring to a commercial application, whether it be in a 25 unit installation in a downtown Los Angeles retail highrise to the many nationwide gas company building installations. Efficiency, quality, and effectiveness are just a few of the many hallmarks of NextAire equipment! Installations in the commercial market segment are highlighted below.

Multi-Zone GHPs were retrofitted to an existing 4-pipe hydronic system using AWS Chiller Link heat exchangers. According to Steve Roberson, Alagasco’s Manager of Technical Services , “The NextAire gas-fired head pump matched with their Chiller Link technology offers an efficient approach for natural gas heating and cooling for a traditional four- pipe system. In an ever-changing cooling market, this innovative technology gives the gas industry an improved ability to compete with mainstream variable-refrigerant-flow technologies as well as the traditional electric chiller cooling approach.”
TECO Average gas efficiency of 140% was measured during a 12 month sub-metered field demonstration, corresponding to a 36% source energy savings and over 43% savings in fuel cost relative to a hypothetical electric heat pump. Comfort, temperature, and humidity levels were consistent in all 14 zones.
