The advantages of a dual fuel system

South Bend, IN, experiences just about every possible climate condition, but the summers are short but especially tepid and muggy! Both Springtime and fall are windy, cold, wet and bring frequent thunderstorms.

winter time is consistently the longest season, lasting more than half the year.

Temperatures are constantly below cold and can plummet into the disadvantage readings, and my associate and I can expect more than five feet of snow accumulation, hail, sleet and blizzards. The weather requires running the furnace for around eight months. There is a easily brief respite before it’s necessary to start up the central a/c. The cost of heating and cooling combine into about fifty percent of the home energy expenses! Although the cost of installing a hybrid furnace was higher than a more conventional option, it saves a good deal on daily utility bills. My apartment in South Bend is outfitted with the combination of a gas furnace and electric heat pump. The advantage of this type of system is the heat pump’s ability to supply both heating and cooling, during the summer time months, it performs just like a central a/c, but it is especially nice at handling excess humidity and charmingly environmentally friendly, and when the cold weather arrives, the heat pump literally reverses the flow of refrigerant to supply heat. The heat pump doesn’t cause complications with overly dry air and doesn’t burn fossil fuels. It costs a lot less to run than the furnace and handles comfort until outdoor temperature falls below cold. At that point, the furnace automatically takes over and manages comfort.
