While we’ve definitely still got a couple of pretty chilly weeks ahead of us, especially during the nights, the fact of the matter is that we are rapidly approaching the end of the winter season. How have you made out with your heater this heating season? If its performance left much to be desired, or if you’ve been planning on replacing an old, inefficient system once this stretch of cold weather comes to a close, you are probably starting to consider your options seriously. Spring is a great time for a heating replacement, and we’re here to do the job right. We recommend that you give some serious consideration to the use of a hybrid heating system.
What Exactly Is a Hybrid Heating System?
A hybrid heating system is a perfect answer to homeowners interested in using a heat pump in order to efficiently heat their homes, yet hesitant due to concerns that the system may struggle in very cold stretches of weather. A dual fuel hybrid heating system combines a heat pump, which transfers existing heat into homes in order to heat them with outstanding efficiency, with a more traditional heating system, such as a gas furnace, for added reliability. Modern heat pumps are capable of operating effectively at very low temperatures, but they may struggle to heat a home sufficiently when it gets very cold. The addition of a traditional heating system means that you can use your heat pump with well-earned confidence.
It is important to keep in mind that investing in a hybrid heating system doesn’t just ensure your comfort throughout the heating season. Heat pumps are capable of reversing their operation, meaning that you can cool your home with the heat pump in the system during the summer season. This makes a hybrid heating system as versatile as it is efficient and reliable.
