Atlanta, GA Dual Fuel Hybrid Heating by Air Conditioning Experts
Keeping warm in the winter is something that every homeowner has to plan for, typically with a centralized home heating system like a furnace. Recently, heat pumps have started to become more and more popular as home heating solutions. This is due to their energy efficiency, as they allow homeowners to experience the same comfort level while simultaneously saving money on operating costs. Unfortunately, heat pumps can have just as many problems as any other system. One of those problems is weather. Fortunately, there is a way to solve for this problem: dual fuel hybrid heating.

Why You Need a Hybrid Heating System
Heat pumps operate much like air conditioners. They evaporate refrigerant to absorb heat from the surrounding air and then move it elsewhere to vent it. A heat pump in heating mode absorbs thermal energy from the air outside and then releases it inside to heat the home. This works quite well, most of the time, and makes the heat pump more energy efficient than traditional systems. However, there does come a point when the heat pump reaches a tipping point and becomes inefficient. The lower the temperature drops, the less thermal energy is available for the heat pump to use. Eventually, there is so little thermal energy in the air that the heat pump cannot siphon enough to keep the house warm. This makes the heat pump sub–optimal for home heating in areas that get especially cold during the winter.
What is a Dual Fuel Hybrid Heating System?
A dual fuel hybrid heating system is a combination heat pump and gas furnace. During days that are cold, but not freezing, the heat pump portion of the system can heat the home just fine while still remaining energy efficient. Once the temperature drops below the level where the heat pump can still operate efficiently, the furnace turns on and keeps the home heated instead. This solves the only real drawback for using a heat pump, and allows homeowners to keep their homes comfortably warm regardless of the weather outside. With a dual fuel hybrid heating system, you can cut down on your home’s operating costs without sacrificing any of your comfort.
