The BULLDOG Heat Pump was developed by the CGC Group in the mid 1990’s to satisfy the HVAC needs of the hotel industry. At that time, HVAC systems had high installation costs, unacceptable sound levels and ever-increasing energy costs. A significant number of test sites were established utilizing the BULLDOG system and were monitored over a number of years to ensure technical compliance. Proven technologies were incorporated into the unit design in order to minimize technical risk. Once proven, the system gained popularity for hotels and was soon being requested for other applications. BULLDOG systems were soon being installed in condominiums, assisted living, schools and office buildings. The concept of FreeHeat™ was developed after some very successful energy conservation projects by the ESCO companies. With the increasing need for quiet and energy efficient systems, the growth of the product line and applications has been nothing short of phenomenal. The CGC Group management team, engineering, manufacturing, and marketing capabilities have consistently met the challenges of this growth. Over the past 14+ years, there have been thousands of units installed throughout North America. With more discerning building occupants and a continuing trend toward Green LEED compliant buildings, the CGC Group is well positioned to meet these challenges.
