A Dual Fuel Heat Pump Could Solve Some Problems For You — Here’s How
If you are looking for an effective heating solution this winter, you should look into installing a dual fuel heat pump. Having one in your home can make a big difference as the temperatures drop.
Dual fuel heat pumps are energy efficient
Heat pumps are highly energy efficient and can be a very cost-effective way to heat your home. However, typical heat pumps do not work well in very low temperatures. They become extremely inefficient and struggle to keep your home warm. To solve this problem, dual fuel heat pumps combine the efficiency of a heat pump with the heating power of a gas furnace. When temperatures drop to a certain point, the system switches from electric to gas and keeps your home warm.
This specific temperature is set to a point that keeps the system running at maximum efficiency and can prevent wasted energy and money. Dual fuel heat pumps enhance comfort In addition to being efficient, this system enhances home comfort. The air compressor portion of the system is located outside, keeping noise to a minimum. Because electric will be used a majority of the time, pollution is also kept to a minimum and your home will have better air quality than with a gas only system.
Dual fuel heat pumps save you money
A dual fuel heat pump can save you money in several ways. In addition to giving you savings on your energy bill, you are also saving money by installing only one system and not two separate systems. This type of heat pump can also add to the market value of your home. You should not overlook the benefits that this can have on the environment. As society is becoming more environmentally conscious, there are more regulations and a push to consume less natural resources. This heating system minimizes the impact it has on the environment by using electricity for most of the time.
