Some of years ago, I upgraded the temperature control in my home to a dual-fuel system. This type of heating and cooling plan combines a heat pump and a natural gas gas furnace, and is quite extravagant to purchase and install. The exceptional efficiency, versatility and comfort gave by a dual fuel plan makes it worth it. On their own, an electric heat pump and gas gas furnace have both benefits and downsides. Joining them together takes advantages of the best features of each. The air-source heat pump is a lovelyly energy efficient source of temperature control, but struggles to handle demand when outside temperature falls below cold. The gas furnace provides a backup heating source, and is capable of handling the most serious Wintertime cold. It automatically starts up when needed. I can also activate the gas furnace manually if the beach house feels a bit freezing. Since I have the option between either electric or natural gas, I can use the fuel source that’s most economical. The electric heat pump properly handles 85% of the workload, which saves myself and others quite a bit of currency and reduces my carbon footprint. It doesn’t burn fossil fuels, eliminating the combustion process and issues over fumes, tepid surfaces and carbon monoxide. The heat pump combines both heating and cooling capacity. It acts almost exactly like an cooling system during the summertime weeks, but is more efficient and better at combating humidity. In milder weather, the plan reverses direction to supply heat but won’t downsidely impact humidity. And because the gas furnace only carries a small portion of the workload, it should last a absolutely long time.
