Tecogen to Showcase Ilios Gas Heat Pump at AHR Expo

WALTHAM, Mass., Jan. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Tecogen® Inc. (NASDAQ: TGEN) is pleased to announce the company will be attending the AHR Expo in Orlando Florida. Running from January 25th – 27th 2016, the International Air-Conditioning, Heating, Refrigeration Exposition (AHR) will be held at the Orange County Convention Center located at 9899 International Drive. Displaying the most advanced products and technology to over 60,000 HVAC professionals in attendance, AHR Expo is co-sponsored by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers Inc. (ASHRAE) and the Air-Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI).

Tecogen will showcase its premier Ilios® gas heat pump (GHP) at the Expo. With its super-efficient heat pump cycle powered by cheap and abundant natural gas, the Ilios unit is ideal for meeting space conditioning needs in warm climates like Florida.  Based on engine-driven heat pump technology, free heat from the natural gas driven engine is recovered and added to water-source heat for twice the efficiency of a traditional boiler. This process saves both natural gas and electricity costs and reduces greenhouse gas emissions.

"The Ilios water-source GHP is an ideal fit for all sorts of commercial and industrial applications due to its ability to efficiently provide simultaneous heating and cooling," said Stephen Lafaille, Ilios Product Manager. "Obviously, the major driver for implementing this type of product is reducing operating costs, but we are also seeing the other benefits that Ilios provides such as a reduction in carbon footprint and clean emissions becoming increasingly more important to many companies who value environmental stewardship."

Stop by booth 2510 on Level 1 of North Hall to see how Tecogen's products can help save you money while substantially reducing your greenhouse gas emissions.
