Our system uses a natural gas-fueled engine to generate chilled water and hot water. It is a form of cogeneration and is the most efficient way to produce chilled water and hot water simultaneously. It provides building owners with a reliable, proven, and cost-effective alternative to conventional electric chillers. Now Tecochill natural gas chillers are eligible for up to a 40% Federal Investment Tax Credit.
By using cheap natural gas to produce chilled water instead of expensive electricity you can reduce your electrical consumption, peak demand charges and utility bills significantly. At the same time, free “waste” heat is recovered and used to offset fuel that would otherwise have to be burned in the site’s water heaters and boilers. This allows the site’s boilers to not have to work as hard so the site’s gas bill (e.g., for space heating, domestic hot water (DHW), process hot water, pool heating, etc.) is also reduced.
The only natural-gas engine driven chiller on the market - TECOCHILL's benefits are significant.
Reduction in utility-related operating costs
Reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions normally associated with electricity and hot water production
