Dual Fuel Systems Make Heating Even More Efficient. You want to keep your home comfortable without paying a fortune on utility bills, which is why you have high efficiency HVAC products. What you might not have known is that some of these products are not only energy efficient working by themselves, but they can be combined to offer even greater efficiency to your family. At Hopper Heating and Air in Shelby, we offer furnaces that work with heat pumps to create a dual fuel system. Combining a gas furnace with an electric heat pump gives you the ability to use two different fuel types: gas and electricity. When it’s too cold for your heat pump to operate efficiently (usually around 32 degrees Fahrenheit), the furnace starts up to provide the rest of the power you need to stay comfy. 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 good solution, if we may say so ourselves. Check out our gas furnace and heat pump offerings to find details about each system.
