What is a CO2 Heat Pump?
Heat pumps take heat from an ambient temperature source and release it to a warmer temperature source. It uses an external source such as air, ground or water to transfer energy and a fluid called a refrigerant to facilitate the process. Carbon dioxide heat pumps work the same way, by transferring thermal energy, but they use carbon dioxide as the refrigerant fluid. These heat pumps are environmentally friendly because the carbon dioxide they use remains inside the equipment and is not released into the atmosphere. Furthermore, carbon dioxide is non-toxic and only has a much lower GWP (Global Warming Potential) than chemical alternatives.
Types of CO2 Heat Pumps We Produce
CO2 heat pumps reduce carbon emissions while helping you maintain temperature control in your building. Browse our range of sustainable CO2 heat pumps for use in a variety of sectors including agriculture, commercial, data center, residential, industrial and manufacturing.
1. Residential CO2 Heat Pump
Our smaller CO2 heat pumps for lower heat capacities. Its compact design makes it suitable where space is limited. For example, it can be skid-mounted with regenerators or heat exchangers to recover heat from refrigeration systems.
2. Commercial CO2 Heat Pumps
We have medium sized CO2 heat pumps. For example, it is suitable for continuous operation and higher heating capacity of large buildings or processes; swimming pools, food production, district heating and factories. Design and manufacture are completely ready to use.
3. Carbon dioxide heat pump for engineering projects
Our largest CO2 heat pump, it is custom designed and manufactured for every project. Single machine power up to 1.4MW, including ground, air, water and heat recovery. Installed as a separate evaporator and compressor station with glycol or refrigerant connections.
4. Hydrocarbon carbon dioxide heat pump
Our hydrocarbon CO2 heat pumps for small applications up to 150KW. It is a more affordable low carbon solution that reduces flow temperatures but still provides superior low carbon heating service and low GWP refrigerants.

Why invest in a CO2 heat pump?
1. Save energy
The average COP of a CO2 heat pump hot water system is 5, which means that for a 1 kW electrical input, it produces about 5 kW of heat output. This reduces energy by approximately 80% compared to conventional electric-element hot water systems, where 1 kW of electricity produces 1 kW of heat output.
With electricity prices rising year by year, CO2 heat pump hot water systems are the best, most economical and sustainable option.
2. Environmental protection
As an eco-friendly product, the CO2 heat pump hot water system is an affordable system that ranks alongside solar energy in terms of eco-friendliness. As such, it is eligible for rebates and other government incentives.
3. Easy installation
Much like traditional hot water systems, CO2 heat pump hot water systems are easy to install. Installation requires a licensed plumber and electrician, and no refrigeration technician is required.
4. Quiet operation
The CO2 heat pump operates at a whisper quiet level - 37dB, making it the quietest hot water heat pump system on the market.
