How Hybrid HVAC Can Save You Money
If you have a natural gas or propane furnace, no one needs to tell you about the skyrocketing fuel costs over the past few years. Then there’s the polar vortex threatening to return this year—even as last year a 5-ton system using LP cost approximately $1000 a month. It’s enough to make you want to hibernate! That’s why a hybrid HVAC system makes sense. Just like a hybrid car, a hybrid HVAC system uses two fuel sources. It combines a high-efficiency electric heat pump with propane or gas in one simple system.
How it Works
When winter temperatures are (relatively) mild, your heat pump does all the work. The heat pump, which sits outside your home, uses electricity and a system of air transfer (from outside to in and from inside to out) that keep your costs at a minimum. Then, if and when the temps dip so low the heat pump doesn’t balance the air transfer cost effectively, your furnace takes over. With one simple-to-use thermostat, you stay in control of the process. That means true comfort, with the peace of mind knowing that you’ve reduced your dependence on rising gas prices. And you’ve got a great source of air conditioning come summer.
