If you are thinking about installing a new heating system, fall is the best time of year to get the job done. When considering what type of heating system you want in your home, you definitely want to take a look at a dual fuel heat pump. Here are a few features and benefits of a dual fuel heat pump that will help you decide if this heating system is the right choice for your home.
What is a Dual Fuel Heat Pump?
Basically, a dual fuel system is the combination of a heat pump and a gas or oil furnace. Dual fuel pumps are ideal for locations where the temperature drops below freezing in the winter months.
Why Should I Choose a Dual Fuel Heat Pump?
These benefits of a dual fuel heat pump make it an excellent choice for the cold Peachtree City winters.
- Energy efficient. During the warmer days during the winter, the electric heat pump will heat your home. The heat pump helps reduce the amount of gas or oil you will need to use during the whole winter which helps save you money. Once temperatures drop to below freezing, your furnace will take over and provide your home heat.
- Better for the environment. A dual fuel heating system uses electricity to heat the home approximately 85% of the time. This means that you will burn less fossil fuel, making this type of heating system much more environmentally friendly.
- Two for one. The dual fuel heat pump not only helps heat your home in the winter, but it serves as an air conditioner that will keep your house cool in the summer.
- Quiet and clean. Noise is not an issue with the dual fuel heat pump system. The compressor is normally installed outdoors which eliminates a great deal of noise in the home. The system also produces very little dirt and dust.
