The Canadian contractor believes that creating a more sustainable sector will require bringing space cooling, heating and hot-water production and refrigeration into one integrated system.
The Thermal Force One system is able to meet all the HVAC&R needs of a facility, while providing district heating and cooling for neighboring buildings.
The installation of the systems at two sports complexes in Halton Hills, Ontario, will cut costs and emissions.

Cimco’s central ammonia chiller/heat pump supplies cool and hot water to home heat pumps while delivering hot and cool glycol to a geothermal field.
Reclaiming excess heat from the ammonia refrigeration system removed the need for any boilers at the plant, saving 2.5 million kWh of energy each year.
The system will be linked to a district energy-sharing system that uses 100% renewable energy and is carbon neutral.
Heat tapped from Maple Leaf Foods’ ammonia system is used to generate boiler make-up water.
Cimco system leverages heat reclaim to cut energy costs by CAD$100,000 per year.
