Benefits of a Dual Fuel HVAC System
Here in the Georgetown area, winter lows hover in the mid-20s. At certain times of the year, temperatures may fall below the point where heat pumps perform efficiently even with such advances as scroll compressors. Normally, when temperatures fall outside this range or when extra heating is required, heat pumps use electric resistance as a backup to generate the necessary warmth. However, this is costly and inefficient. With a hybrid or dual fuel HVAC system, you can enjoy the energy savings of a heat pump most of the time with the power-packed performance of a gas furnace as needed. The result is a heater that delivers optimal comfort in the most challenging climatic conditions.
