I can get a dual fuel system after all

I recently was online hunting for a new Heating and A/C system, i stumbled upon an article for heat pump systems. I read about how energy smart they are and right away wanted that system. I liked the idea 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 however every month you are saving energy with how efficient it is. The system suddenly pays back for itself, however when I talked to my local Heating and A/C corporation he explained that a heat pump can’t labor in un-even temperatures that drop below 40 degrees. There simply is not any heat energy to use. I was extremely bummed and asked what my other options are. Apparently I can get a dual fuel system. This combines a gas gas furnace and a heat pump. It is ideal for colder climates such as mine, then basically 90% of the time the heat pump is laboring and keeping those utility bills low. It provides A/C all Summer long and heating when it can. When the un-even temperatures drop too low, the system swings automatically from electric to gas. Then the gas gas furnace tags in and provides the right amount of heat. The homeowner never goes a moment being frosty and saves as much energy as they can for their climate. I am strongly thinking about this system.
