Enhanced Comfort and Energy Efficiency
A key benefit of a hybrid heating system is its ability to ensure consistent warming. The design of a hybrid system is fixed upon ensuring optimal comfort around the clock. A hybrid system is designed to allow for supplemental heating when needed to ensure consistent comfort at your home or place of business.
Another fundamental benefit of a hybrid heating system is found in its vastly superior energy efficiency. The bottom line is that a hallmark of a hybrid unit is its ability to transfer far more energy in the form of heat than is consumed by the system itself. Indeed, the lower rate of energy consumed by a hybrid system outpaces any traditional HVAC unit on the market today. This includes both heat pump and combustion furnace alternatives widely used in a residential and commercial settings.
What is a Hybrid Heating System?
A hybrid heating system combines the best of a heat pump and a combustion furnace. A hybrid heat system offers the ability to switch from heat pump functionality to a function similar to a combustion furnace when temperatures dip to a point that warrants additional warmth. The switch between the two elements of a hybrid system can occur automatically or manually.
The initial cost of installing a hybrid heat system does run somewhat higher than that associated with either a heat pump or a traditional combustion furnace. With that said, once installed a hybrid system uses far less energy than the other two types of heating systems. As a result, a homeowner can end up realizing an energy savings of upwards to 30 to 50 percent annually.
Hybrid Heating System Components
A hybrid heating system integrates a heat pump and a traditional combustion furnace. The combination of heat pump and combustion furnace components servers to enhance fuel efficiency and cost savings all the while ensuring that your residential or commercial property remains at a comfortable temperature. This dual system guarantees that comfort is maintained even during the harshest winter weather conditions.
Dual Fuel Heat Pump
Despite the name assigned to these systems, heat pumps are designed to both heat and cool a residence. A heat pump utilizes electricity and refrigerant to transfer heat. This contrasts the more widely used systems that generate heat rather than capture and transfer it. Heat pumps are most suitable and effective when the temperature is above freezing. Hence, thanks to the mechanics of a hybrid heating system, traditional forced air functionality ensures consistently comfortable temperatures.
Forced Air Furnace
Forced air furnaces are among the most widely utilized types of heating systems in Pennsylvania and across the United States. Through a force aired system, air is heated by a furnace and then pushed through a series of ducts throughout a residence or business. Four different types of fuel are typically utilized to generate heat in a forced air system including gas, oil, propane, and electricity. Natural gas is the most widely used fuel source for a forced air heating system.
