My home is outfitted with a hybrid gas furnace.
The combination of the electric heat pump & natural gas oil furnace was a greater investment than a more conventional alternative, however, the energy savings have helped to reuse the cost absolutely abruptly.
In our local area, the two of us experience numerous distinct seasons, however our weather is extremely severe, with wide temperature changes. The two of us get snow, rain, hail, sleet, high winds, heat & humidity & rely on the heating & cooling system for the majority of the year. The heat pump provides both heating & cooling capacity. It works by moving existing heat from between the indoors & outdoors. In cooling mode, it pulls heat out of the modern home & transfers it by way of refrigerant. In heat mode, it finds ambient heat in the outdoor air, compresses it to a higher temperature & sends it into the house. Because the heat pump doesn’t create heat or burn fossil fuels, there is no combustion process. There are no problems over greenhouse gasses, fumes, boiling surfaces or carbon monoxide. The heat pump is charmingly environmentally friendly & energy efficient. It is especially safe & clean & works to filter out contaminants. The heat pump helps to combat humidity during the summer time & doesn’t cause problems with overly dry air in the winter. The only setback of the heat pump is that it loses effectiveness when the temperature drops below freezing. The oil furnace automatically takes over & keeps the home perfectly sizzling during the worst of winter. The hybrid system has been the perfect solution for our home & our local weather.
