Heat Pump/Dual Fuel:
A heat pump offers an energy-efficient alternative to replace the standard furnace and air conditioner. During the heating season, heat pumps will pull heat from the outdoors inside to warm your home and during the cooling season, heat pumps move heat from your cool house into the outdoors. Because they don’t’ generate heat, but rather move heat, heat pumps can provide equivalent heating or air conditioning at as little as one quarter of the cost of operating a furnace and air conditioner. This is possible because a heat pump moves heat rather than converting it from fuel like a standard furnace does.
If you heat with electricity, a heat pump can trim the amount of electricity you use for heating by as much as 30% to 40%. High-efficiency heat pumps also dehumidify better than standard central air conditioners, resulting in less energy usage and more cooling comfort in summer months. If the temperature outdoors is insufficient to move heat indoors the system will automatically switch to a heat source or gas furnace to overcome the difference and keep your home warm. Because it is a dual fuel system it also gives the home owner the option to switch the system manually to optimize the homes comfort.
