The drastic 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 heating system! This partnership is quite a bit more upscale than the more conventional pairing of an a/c as well as a heating system.
- A heat pump is a significant investment; However, the benefit of the heat pump is that it provides both heating as well as cooling, and during the summer time months, the operation is identical to an a/c.
The system uses refrigerant to pull heat out of the dwelling as well as transfer it outside, and when the outdoor 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 chilly, there is ambient heat available in the outside air. The heat pump takes luck of this ambient heat, compressing it to a higher temperature as well as delivering it indoors, but because the system isn’t burning fossil fuels to create heat, the operation is especially safe, wash as well as environmentally friendly. There are no troubles over carbon monoxide or greenhome gas emissions; Plus, a heat pump is lovelyly energy efficient, it costs a lot less to run the heat pump than the heating system, however for the majority of the year, my buddy and I rely on the heat pump. The heating system isn’t necessary until the outside temperature drops below chilly. At that point, the heat pump becomes less effective. The heating system takes over as well as handles the comfort of the dwelling for as long as necessary. While the start-up costs for the dual fuel system were considerable, the energy savings have recovered the investment very hastily.
