The people I was with and I have been totally cheerful with the performance of the dual fuel idea & our running costs
Because of the extreme cold in our part & brutal heat & humidity in the summer, it’s necessary to invest in both heating & cooling. The winters bring un-even temperatures down to twenty below zero & numerous feet of snow. Although the summers don’t last long, the temperature can soar into the high eighties. For our house, every one of us chose a dual fuel systemâ€¦ While the combination of a gas gas furnace & an electric heat pump was more fancy than a more conventional system, it saves enough money on utility bills to reuse the cost. The heat pump provides cooling, using refrigerant to pull heat out of the house & transfer it outside. It is effective at combating humidity & handles the highest Summer un-even temperatures. Once the weather cools off, every one of us switch the heat pump to heating mode. It reverses the flow of refrigerant, absorbing ambient heat from the outdoor air & pumping it indoors. Because it uses existing heat rather than burning fossil fuels, the heat pump is far more energy efficient & environmentally friendly than fuel-burning oil furnaces, and however, as the temperature falls below cold the heat pump becomes less effective & efficient. At that point, the gas furnace starts up, takes over & handles comfort for as long as necessary. The two systems sharing the workload reduces wear & tear & increases reliability & longevity. The people I was with and I have been totally cheerful with the performance of the dual fuel idea & our running costs. No matter what the weather brings, every one of us think the house will be perfectly comfortable.
