Electrification of HVAC Systems for Faster Building Decarbonization

In today’s world, decarbonization is more than a buzzword: it’s a global necessity, a corporate benchmark, a customer requirement and, increasingly, a competitive advantage. While the pathway to building decarbonization can be complex, a collaborative effort that considers where you are today – and where you need to be tomorrow – can help make it a reality.

YORK® is meeting the need for building decarbonization with an expanded range of energy-efficient electric water heating heat pump solutions.

  • YORK® CYK Water-to-Water Compound Centrifugal Heat Pump: two centrifugal compressors in series deliver 170 ºF (77 ºC) water in a compact footprint to shift heating loads to electric in medium to large facilities.
  • YORK® YVWH Water-to-Water Variable Speed Dual Screw Heat Pump: two screw compressors deliver up to 4,400 MBH (1,289 kW) of 176 ºF (80 ºC) water to shift heating loads to electric in smaller facilities.
  • YORK® YMAE Air-to-Water Inverter Scroll Modular Heat Pump: 2-pipe or 4-pipe modular design delivers 140 ºF (60 ºC) water in capacities exceeding 3,000 MBH (~1,000 kW) and is an evolution of the 2021 ACR News Awards Heat Pump Product of the Year.

Solutions for Today

While there are many ways to decarbonize and electrify, few of those options make sense economically. A well-engineered water heating and cooling heat pump system can be a cost-effective, more energy-efficient alternative to traditional boiler and chiller systems that also delivers a significant reduction in CO2 emissions.

Innovations for Tomorrow

With recent advances in heat pump technology, commercial and industrial facilities can now significantly reduce energy use, water consumption and carbon emissions while keeping occupants comfortable and processes running effectively. Previewed at the 2023 AHR® Expo in Atlanta, these new models are coming soon!
