We enjoy very mild winters here, which is one of the reasons we call Gainesville, FL home. While most homes have heating systems to keep warm on the coldest winter nights, we don’t have as pressing a need for heating the way they do further north. That allows us to explore alternative forms of heating such as dual fuel heat pumps, which can save you a great deal of money on winter heating bills.
Here in Gainesville, the friendly pros at North Central Florida Air Conditioning can provide quality hybrid heat dual fuel system services, including installations, replacement, repair and maintenance services. If you think a form of hybrid heat may be best for your home, contact our trained comfort advisors today! Give us a call to schedule heating services in Gainesville, FL and the surrounding area.
How Does Hybrid Heat Work?
Hybrid heat dual fuel systems, or dual fuel heat pumps, rely on two separate types of HVAC units to keep warm. The first is a heat pump, which combines the features of a heater and an air conditioner in one. By relying on refrigerant, which isn’t consumed, to generate heat instead of gas or other fuels, the system uses far less energy during our Gainesville, FL winters than other systems.
Heat pumps do lose some efficiency on especially cold days, which is where hybrid heaters come in. A smaller furnace works in conjunction with the heat pump to make up the difference and ensure that your home is warmed adequately. The team at North Central Florida Air Conditioning can handle hybrid heating operations of all variety, so call on us today!
What Are the Benefits of Hybrid Heating Systems?
The biggest benefit to a hybrid heating system is the savings it entails. Not in the summer, though it can perform as efficiently as any other kind of air conditioner in most cases. In the winter, however, its real benefits become known.
Because at least some of the heat is generated by refrigerant (which isn’t consumed in the process) it means you can heat your home for much less than you usually might. It also means that wear and tear on the system is apt to be drastically reduced in the winter, helping to prevent repair calls and increasing the system’s overall longevity.
Do You Need a Hybrid Heating System?
Installing a dual fuel heat pump is no different than installing any other type of heater or air conditioner, provided of course that you have the right team on the job for you. Dual fuel heat pumps need someone with the right training and experience to work at their best, whether you’re installing a new system or getting an old one up to speed.
That’s why our team is skilled in the installation, repair, maintenance, and replacement of hybrid heating systems of all varieties. We can help select the right make and model for your home, then install it with the same confidence and pride we bring to more traditional air conditioners. We also provide repair and maintenance sessions for homes that already have such a system. Call us today to make an appointment!
