The Power of the Dual Fuel System

Heat pump systems are great on their own for getting you through a hot summer. They are as powerful as any air conditioner of the same size, and provide you with energy savings during mildly cold weather. In cooling mode, the heat pump acts like a conventional central AC—evaporating refrigerant through an indoor coil to draw out heat from the inside air, then pumping it outdoors.

In heating mode, this process is reversed and refrigerant evaporates outdoors to draw heat from the air outside, pumping the heat indoors. No matter how cold it is, there is always some thermal energy available to the heat pump. But, the heat pump has to work harder and harder the chillier it gets, and that’s where a dual fuel system replacement can benefit you more than just your standard heat pump.

Bringing You the Best in Home Comfort

Sure, you could use a furnace for your home heating and use a traditional central air conditioner in the summertime. Furnaces don’t have any trouble overcoming extreme cold. But alone, your furnace can actually burn too much fuel when temperatures are moderately cold. This is a waste of energy and money, plus the process can make your home feel dry and stuffy.

But a dual fuel system replacement or new installation gives your Akron, OH area home flexible heating options. The heat pump remains working the majority of the year, providing a comfortable level of cooling and warmth, depending on the season. Then when necessary, the dual fuel heat pump changes over to the furnace, to overcome the deep cold temperatures. This is an automatic process, meaning your household will always have the optimal heating type for ideal comfort and energy savings.
