Experience the Comfort of a Dual Fuel System. A number of the fuel systems we offer at Southern Heating & Cooling Inc. in Scottsboro improve your home’s efficiency more when they work in partnership with another Lennox® system than they by themselves. This is the case with for our dual fuel capacity gas furnaces and heat pumps, which can be combined to deliver higher efficiency and greater comfort for you. Both systems work well by themselves, but when you marry the gas furnace and the heat pump, you’re taking advantage of both gas and electric fuel. The two systems will alternate between electric or gas heat depending on your desired indoor air temperature and the operating efficiency of each unit. This works the same way as a hybrid car, alternating between electric power at low speed and gas power when there’s a higher demand for maximum MPG. You’ll be able to hone your energy use, and you could decrease your heating costs. Usually the electric heat is used until the outdoor temperatures dip to about 32 degrees Fahrenheit before switching to gas. Not only will you feel comfortable, but you can feel good about the efficiency of your dual fuel systems, too. Learn more about the details of each of our gas furnaces and heat pumps here on our website, or give us a call at 256-574-1300. Southern Heating & Cooling Inc. is located in Scottsboro, so you can easily arrange an appointment to have us do an in-home consultation and show you how a dual fuel system could work for your home.
