Anesi Gas Heat Pumps (aka Stone Mountain Technologies, Inc.)
Development of a Hybrid Gas-Electric Heat Pump for Residential Heating, Cooling and DWH
Anesi is developing a fully integrated "single-box" solution to replace furnaces, boilers, air-conditioners, and hot water heaters with a best-in-class energy efficient and lowest cost "hybrid" unit. The system will target a heating AFUE of 140% and a cooling SEER 16 which correspond to a 45% and 12% increase in performance compared to conventional heating and cooling technologies. The integrated "Hybrid" system will be ultimately designed to provide year-round space conditioning as a single installed unit and replace the standard two system installation furnace and electric air-conditioner, plus domestic hot water.
Demonstration of Thermally Driven Heat Pumps for Residential Heating Applications
Stone Mountain Technologies (SMTI) will join forces with Canadian HVAC manufacturer Napoleon to finalize technical designs and the business case for the market entry of a Thermally Driven Heat Pump (TDHP). TDHPs can replace furnaces in residential buildings, and in "combi" mode, they also provide domestic hot water.
