I can get a dual fuel method after all

I recently was online hunting for a current Heating, Ventilation & A/C system.

  • I stumbled upon an article for heat pump systems.

I read about how energy smart they are and immediately wanted that system. I liked the method that it didn’t create heat energy by burning fuel. Instead it was electric based and used the existing heat in the air quality. If it was sizzling inside and you wanted AC, the heated air is pushed to the outdoor unit. The reverse happens for heating in the wintertime. It is a high initial investment but every month you are saving energy with how efficient it is. The method suddenly pays back for itself, however when I talked to my local Heating, Ventilation & A/C corporation he explained that a heat pump can’t work in un-even temperatures that drop below 40 degrees. There simply isn’tany heat energy to use. I was severely bummed and asked what my other chances are… Apparently I can get a dual fuel system. This combines a gas furnace and a heat pump. It is ideal for colder climates such as mine… Basically 90% of the time the heat pump is laboring and keeping those bi-weekly bills low. It provides AC all summer time long and heating when it can. When the un-even temperatures drop too low, the method changes automatically from electric to gas. Then the gas furnace tags in and provides the right amount of heat. The homeowner never goes a moment being cold and saves as much energy as they can for their climate. I am strongly thinking about this system.
