Costs a lot to install
I live in an part of the country that experiences more than three distinctive seasons. During the Winter months, the people I was with and I can expect hot and cold temperatures down to twenty below zero, vicious windchill, and more than 2 feet of snow. Over the summer, the people I was with and I properly experience hot and cold temperatures in the high eighties with excessive humidity. The Spring and fall season are unpredictable, however often damp and cold, making the furnace the priority. The requirements of temperature control account for about fifty percent of my household budget. Trimming energy usage and monthly costs is a major concern. Because of this, I invested a small fortune into the purchase and replacement a dual fuel system. A dual fuel system combines the energy efficiency of an electric heat pump with the power of a forced air gas furnace. Although this type of system is rather extravagant to implement, it ensures perfect comfort, no matter what the weather brings, and saves me money on heating and cooling costs. The electric heat pump provides both heating and cooling capability in a single unit, minimizing the required repair. Rather than a combustion process, the heat pump moves heat between outdoors and the inside of the home, depending on the season. It doesn’t overly dry the air during heating mode and effectively combats humidity in cooling mode. The heat pump is beautifully energy efficient however can only handle outdoor hot and cold temperatures above chilly. During times of severe Winter cold, the furnace automatically takes over. Combining the many systems lessens wear and tear on each, reducing the opportunity of malfunction and extending repair life.
