Installation of a dual fuel system
The weather in the section where I live is a constant concern. The people I was with and I have fairly short summer time seasons, however the excessive humidity & high hot & cold temperatures make it impossible to get by without air conditioner. The winters are long & brutal, with hot & cold temperatures well below zero & dangerous wind chill. The Spring & fall are unpredictable & rarely mild enough to go without either heating or cooling. Because of relying on temperature control nearly all year round, our monthly energy bills are a big area of the budget. To optimize comfort & efficiency, I chose a dual fuel proposal for our home. A dual fuel proposal is far more overpriced to install than most other types of heating & cooling. However, the equipment has paid for itself in energy savings. A dual fuel proposal combines a forced air gas oil furnace with an electric heat pump. During the warmer weather, the heat pump provides air conditioner. It works on the same principle as a refrigerator, simply moving heat from one locale to another to create a cooling effect. It is more energy efficient than a conventional air conditioning & achieves superior dehumidification. When the weather starts to cool off, the heat pump reverses direction to bring ambient heat into the house. There is no burning of fossil fuels, eliminating any fear of carbon monoxide poisoning, fumes or tepid surfaces. Plus, there’s no yellowcondo gas emissions, making the proposal very environmentally friendly. However, the heat pump can only manage hot & cold temperatures down to thirty-two degrees. At that point, the oil furnace automatically starts up & handles comfort for as long as necessary. The combination of the heat pump & oil furnace lessens wear & tear on both, leading to longer service lives & less choice of malfunction.
