How Hybrid Heat Dual Fuel Systems Work
The two fuels in a hybrid heat dual fuel system are natural gas and electricity. The system is a hybrid between a natural gas furnace, which uses the combustion of natural gas to heat the air, and a heat pump, which uses refrigeration to move heat around.
Furnaces are reliable and natural gas does not tend to cost very much, at least when compared to electricity. However, heat pumps don’t use very much electricity because they only use it to move heat around from one place to another—not to produce heat.
A heat pump is a heating and cooling system in one, using refrigerant to move heat into a home in the winter, and to transfer heat out in the summer (just like a regular AC system). Heat transfer is an efficient heating method, until temperatures approach freezing.
At this point, you need an alternative heating system. When a heat pump is no longer the most efficient heating option, your hybrid system automatically switches over to the heat pump to help you save money.
Hydro Air Systems: Another Kind of Hybrid Heat
Another type of hybrid system that we offer is the hydro air system. This uses a boiler to produce heat. A boiler is a hot–water heating system—not something that typically gets used with the air ducts in a home. Instead, boilers usually circulate heat throughout the home via a system of hot water pipes.
However, a hydro air system is different. The boiler heats up the water, but then it sends it to a set of coils in an air handler—much like the air handler in a central AC system—with a blower fan to distribute heat to the ducts.
One of the major advantages to this type of hybrid heat system is the ease of zone distribution: creating different zones in order to heat rooms to different temperatures.
