Dual Fuel Systems Make Heating Even More Efficient. You want to keep your home operating with lower energy costs, which is why you have high efficiency HVAC products. What you may not have known is that a selection of these products are not only energy efficient when operating alone, but they can be combined to produce even greater efficiency to your family. At Air Patrol Air Conditioning & Heating of Texas in Dallas, we carry furnaces that work with heat pumps to create a dual fuel system. Combining a gas furnace with an electric heat pump enables you to use two different fuel types: gas and electricity. Whenever the weather becomes too cold for your heat pump to work efficiently (usually around 32 degrees Fahrenheit), the furnace starts up to provide the extra power you need to stay warm. That means you’re only using gas fuel when it’s needed. Dual fuel systems switch between the two types of heat, which optimizes energy uses and decreases heating costs. That’s a solution we like to see. Check out our gas furnace and heat pump offerings to learn more about the systems individually.
