Hybrid Heating: The Best of Both Worlds

Are you familiar with heat pump technology? A heat pump is an HVAC system that allows you to both heat and cool your home with the use of just one system. During the summer, the heat pump works just like a central AC system. In the winter, though, a heat pump reverses its refrigerant cycle. That allows the outdoor coil to function as the evaporator coil, and for the system to evaporate refrigerant in order to absorb heat from the air outside. After compression, this refrigerant’s thermal energy is used to heat air for distribution throughout the house.

This is a very efficient means of heating your home, as you are transferring heat, rather than generating it. The process requires only a small amount of electricity. However, heat pumps can struggle when temperatures are exceptionally cold, especially for longer periods of time. A hybrid heating system pairs the versatility and efficiency of a heat pump with the tried-and-true power and reliability of a furnace. You can use the heat pump to cool your home all summer, and to heat it for most of the winter. When the heat pump starts to struggle, the furnace can automatically take over, so that you are still using minimal energy without compromising your comfort.
