Pump Turns Cold Into Hot

Dan Bross

A prototype heat pump that can derive warmth from extremely cold air, will be tested in Fairbanks. As KUAC’s Dan Bross reports, the unit which amplifies heat extracted from well below zero ambient air, could offer an alternative to fossil fuel and wood fired stoves and boilers.

Dan has been in public radio news in Alaska since 1993. He’s worked as a reporter, newscaster and talk show host at stations in McGrath, Valdez and Fairbanks. Dan’s experience includes coverage of a wide range of topics, from wolf control to the Trans-Alaska Pipeline and dog mushing.
