Gas Pump really generates 0 heat?

code says 0 heat from the gas pump as exhaust or on self though both lines are there if they decide to change it later.

ya seems odd it wouldn't gen any heat.  if it did, the gas it heated would just be sucked up so the gas in the pipes would be warmer logically though i would think.

I'm actually happy that the gas pump doesn't generate heat, it allows us to create vacuum with gas pumps. Otherwise the pump would start overheating in low enough pressure as there wouldn't be enough ambient element to draw the heat off the pump.

a gas pump needs 50 kg of metal.
In copper, it 50,000 * .396 J to raise its temperature by one degree.
So 1,930 seconds or more than 3 cycles ...

Buildings only enter heat-related processes with 1/5 of their declared mass. That makes it 10 kg of e.g. copper ore for thermal purposes. And the declared heat production is multiplied by 200, so declared 10 W would be actual 2 kW. That makes it 1 C every two seconds.
