Dual Fuel Systems

There are many different comfort systems on the market today, and the majority of them work from a single source of energy, such as electricity, natural gas, or propane. In order to conserve energy with one of these systems, you have to cut back on how much you use it. However, there’s another option: a dual fuel heat pump, a.k.a. a hybrid heater. This is a system that uses two different fuel sources and reacts to changing conditions in a home to provide the most energy-efficient performance possible.

If you’re looking to have a hybrid heat system for your home, call Fresh Air, L.P.. We’re experts in installing (as well as replacing) these combinations of heat pumps and natural gas furnaces. And whenever your hybrid heat dual fuel system encounters problems or it needs maintenance, simply contact us. We’re one of your best choices for home comfort in Sugar Land and the Houston and Fort Bend area.

Our technicians at Fresh Air, L.P. offer installation, replacement, repairs, and maintenance for dual fuel systems in Sugar Land, TX and the surrounding areas.

How a Dual Fuel Heat Pump Operates

The basics behind a dual fuel system are that it combines the efficiency of a heat pump with the power of a natural gas furnace. A heat pump is an extremely effective way to provide cooling for a home. But when in heating mode, a heat pump can start to lose its energy efficiency as the outdoor temperature drops lower and lower. What a hybrid heater does is automatically select when to switch on the back–up gas furnace to assist the electrically–powered heat pump when it starts to struggle. These systems are intuitive and will always register what fuel source to use so that you save energy without sacrificing comfort.

Let Us Design and Install Your Hybrid Heat Dual System

Dual fuel heat pumps come in a variety of models, sizes, and costs. For example, you can select a variable speed model that will help you save even more energy, or opt for a less expensive single speed model. To make the best choice for your new hybrid heat system, consult with our HVAC professionals. They’ll design the right heat pump and furnace combo that will meet your needs without breaking the bank. It’s our goal to see that you have the energy–efficient system that’s suited to your household, and that you’ll enjoy great cooling in the summer and perfect heating during the winter.
