Experience the Comfort of a Dual Fuel System. You want to keep your home comfortable without paying a fortune on utility bills, which is why you purchase high efficiency HVAC products. What you may not have known is that some of these products are not only energy efficient when operating themselves, but they can be combined to offer even greater efficiency to your family. At Southern Heating & Cooling Inc. in Scottsboro, we offer furnaces that work with heat pumps to create a dual fuel system. Combining a gas furnace with an electric heat pump allows you the ability to use two different fuel types: gas and electricity. When it’s too cold for your heat pump to run efficiently (usually around 32 degrees Fahrenheit), the furnace starts up to provide the additional power you need to stay warm. That means you’re only using gas fuel when your desired temperature requires it. Dual fuel systems alternate between the two types of heat, which optimizes energy uses and minimizes heating costs. That’s a good solution, if we may say so ourselves. Check out our gas furnace and heat pump offerings to learn more about the systems individually. Give Southern Heating & Cooling Inc. a ring at 256-574-1300 or set up an appointment to discuss adding dual fuel capabilities to your house. We’re in Scottsboro – just down the road and available to help.
