HGS is Software as a Service (SaaS) that allows users to optimize their designs of hybrid Ground Source Heat Pump (GSHP) systems

What is HGS?

HGS is a Hybrid Geothermal System design software company that provides tools for engineers, designers, and architects working in the HVAC industry. An advanced algorithm for optimizing the hybridization of Ground Source Heat Pumps with conventional heating and cooling has been developed at Ryerson University. HGS is based on the algorithm and allows users to efficiently design HVAC systems that include both a Ground Source Heat Pump and conventional heating and cooling.

What does HGS do?

HGS develops a Tailored Software Solution for your company. We provide in-house training and consulting on the use of your software. Our programs read standard heating and cooling load data for either commercial or residential buildings. The software then compares the capital and operating costs of hundreds of potential HVAC designs that include Ground Source Heat Pumps of varying capacity. The program output is the design with the lowest total costs and shortest payback period, as well as CO2 emissions information and other important economic feasibility information.
