    "gas" as in natural gas (Methane) is burned to produce steam

    which facilitates cooling in absorption cycle refrigeration

    (Lithium Bromide, Ammonia).

    "gas" as in refrigerant vapor (HCFC, HFC, usually R-410a), can be used by a heat pump

    to transfer heat from indoors to outdoors (cooling), or outdoors

    to indoors (heating).
