Combining a furnace with an electric heat pump

When I moved up north, I was unprepared for the cold. I didn’t own winter boots, a heavy coat or even an ice scraper. I was totally ignorant about the different types of heating systems. I didn’t know much about the benefits or drawbacks of a furnace or boiler and I’d never heard of a dual fuel system. A local HVAC contractor actually introduced me to the advantages of combining a furnace with an electric heat pump. A duel fuel system draws from both natural gas and electric, using the best option for the weather demands. The heat pump provides both heating and cooling capacity. It serves like an air conditioner in the summer and offers heat once the weather cools down. Because a heat pump relies on ambient heat in the outside air, it loses effectiveness as the temperature drops. When the outdoor temperature remains above freezing, the heat pump is an energy efficient solution. It avoids the combustion process and byproducts such as carbon monoxide. It minimizes impact on the environment, doesn’t overly dry out the air and creates a very gentle heat. The system is quiet, great at dehumidification, safe and actively filters the air. It helps to save money all summer and during spring and fall. However, once the weather gets super chilly, the furnace automatically starts up. It easily combats the most severe weather. By sharing the workload, the heat pump and furnace experience less wear and tear. Each system should last longer and operate more reliably.
