Dual fuel system handles local weather


South Bend, IN, is well-known for the severity of the weather conditions, but the temperature fluctuates from the mid eighties to the teens or even sub zero learning, and it’s necessary to rely on either the heating or cooling system just about year round.

The cost of keeping a comfortable property adds up swiftly, when it was time to upgrade the boiler plus a/c in my home, I decided to invest into a dual fuel system.

Instead of an a/c, the system utilizes an electric heat pump for cooling purposes. While a heat pump is quite a bit more fancy to purchase plus install than an a/c, it pays for itself in energy savings. The luck of a heat pump is the unit’s ability to supply both heating plus cooling. In cooling mode, the heat pump operates just like a conventional a/c. It pulls heat out of the property plus transfers it by way of refrigerant outdoors. When the outdoor conditions cool off, the heat pump reverses the flow of refrigerant. It finds ambient heat in the outdoor air plus delivers it indoors, because the heat pump doesn’t burn fossil fuels to create heat, it is especially safe, environmentally responsible plus clean. It costs a lot less to run than the boiler, but my pal and I run the heat pump for the majority of the year. It supplies perfect comfort until the temperature drops below cold. The boiler then takes over, handling demands for as long as necessary. I am completely content with the performance of the dual fuel system. No matter what the weather brings, our residing space is comfortable.
