Gas Heat Pump

The Gas Heat Pump by Sierra is the latest model from Mestex to use an internal combustion engine, to power the AC's internal components instead of utility supplied electricity. The engine supports both Natural Gas and Propane configurations and has delivered electrical savings, both at time of construction and on a monthly basis, for hundreds of institutions nationwide.


The Sierra Gas Heat Pump offers three configurations for delivering BTUs to a building; either using a Daikin VRV® air handlers, Sierra Hydronic Heat Pump Energy Exchanger, or select Sierra DOAS models.
