Gas for Primary or Space Heating

Natural gas heating equipment is energy efficient, making maximum use of every energy dollar you spend. High efficiency furnaces and boilers are designed to cut your energy costs by increasing the amount of heat obtained from every Btu of fuel consumed. Whether it’s a new furnace or boiler for your primary heating application, or a gas space heater to supplement your central heat source, you’ll have selected the most efficient, cleanest fossil fuel, and the most versatile energy source for your business.

Cool Your Business with Natural Gas

Natural gas air conditioning systems are revolutionizing commercial HVAC design. Modern gas equipment, such as natural gas-powered chillers, gas engine-driven VRF heat-pumps and desiccant cooling systems, are saving money for many businesses. Natural gas-fired dehumidification systems are perfect for supermarkets, medical facilities, hotels, malls, pharmaceutical plants, health clubs and anywhere else indoor air quality is important. They reduce the moisture from the air before it’s conditioned. This reduces the cooling load and operating costs while improving the quality of the indoor air.

Commercial Water Heating

A natural gas water heater can heat twice as much water per hour as an electric model and they easily handle extremely high loads. Today’s commercial natural gas water heaters have new features like superior insulation, efficient burner design and precise temperature controls that help them consume one-third less energy than they did just a few years ago. What does that mean for your business? More hot water in less time using less energy.

Cooking and Restaurant Applications

Ask professional chefs across the nation and they’ll tell you that natural gas is the best energy source for all of their cooking, baking and kitchen requirements. Chefs prefer gas cooking for its instant heat on the range and in the oven, its wide range of temperature controls, and precise temperature settings. Gas ranges, infrared ovens and booster heaters provide the right tools to make your restaurant or professional kitchen smell of success. On top of all that, when you use natural gas, you could actually cut your kitchen’s operating costs by 30%.

Natural Gas Clothes Drying

Natural gas dryers produce a moist heat that is not likely to burn or discolor fabrics. Clothes dried with a natural gas dryer are dried more thoroughly, more quickly, making the dryer cycle much more economic. Whether it’s for your laundromat, hotel or hospital, natural gas dryers are the ticket for your high demand drying needs.
