When the time came that my HVAC technician suggested we install a dual fuel HVAC system around my house, I thought he was starting  to get crazy. It really sounded like an excellent and expensive waste of money (that i don’t have). A dual fuel system is the combination of an electric heating pump and a gas run furnace. I couldn’t figure out why I would ever fathom wanting to install two separate heating systems, since once would complete the task without a hitch. My HVAC technician went on to explain the many advantages of a dual resource system, and I admit that it was an impressing thing. The heat pump eliminates your requirement for an air conditioner, because of a top-notch-quality of both heating and cooling potential. In the summer, the heat pump keeps the home perfectly cool, operates very proficiently, and effectively handles humidity with ease. Being the weather turns colder, the heat pump reverses operation to provide warmth to the house. The warmth pump finds ambient heat within outside air and pumps it inside, which requires not much energy and significantly trims heating cost to you. The system is perfectly dependable, avoiding the concern of water leaking and monoxide poisoning and fire threat. Unfortunately, a heat pump can only effectively heat your property when outside temperatures remain higher than freezing. Once the temperature lowers, a dual fuel system automatically activates the gas furnace. For this reason alone the gas furnace is only found in extreme temperature situations, heating costs are kept in an absolute minimum. The dual fuel system automatically bank’s on the most energy efficient option at all times, making it much more cost-effective when compared to operating a gas furnace by itself.
