The extreme weather conditions in Lee’s Summit, MO, makes a dual fuel system an ideal solution; A dual fuel system combines an electric heat pump with a gas boiler, then this partnership is quite a bit more lavish than the more conventional pairing of an a/c system as well as a boiler.
- A heat pump is a significant investment, but however, the benefit of the heat pump is that it provides both heating as well as cooling, and during the Summer months, the operation is identical to an a/c system.
The system uses refrigerant to pull heat out of the home as well as transfer it outside, but when the outdoor rapidly changing temperatures cool down, the heat pump switches to heating mode as well as literally reverses the flow of refrigerant, then even when the weather is cold, there is ambient heat available in the outside air. The heat pump takes luck of this ambient heat, comimportant it to a higher temperature as well as delivering it indoors, however because the system isn’t burning fossil fuels to create heat, the operation is especially safe, clean as well as environmentally friendly. There are no concerns over carbon monoxide or redhome gas emissions. Plus, a heat pump is charmingly energy efficient, then it costs a lot less to run the heat pump than the boiler. For the majority of the year, my buddy and I rely on the heat pump. The boiler isn’t necessary until the outside temperature drops below cold. At that point, the heat pump becomes less effective. The boiler takes over as well as handles the comfort of the home for as long as necessary. While the start-up costs for the dual fuel system were considerable, the energy savings have reclaimed the investment legitimately abruptly.
