Replacing Your Heater? Consider a Hybrid Heating System

There is still a fair amount of cold weather ahead of us, but we’re willing to bet that you are already anxiously eyeing spring. As you look forward to the heat of summer arriving, the last thing that you may want to think about is your home heating system. However, the spring season is actually a great time to replace an old, ailing heating system, as you won’t have to worry about an early onset of winter complicating matters, as you would if you were to wait until fall to replace your heater. If you are through with your existing heater, you may want to consider replacing it with a hybrid heating system in Loveland, CO.

What Is a Hybrid Heating System?

Hybrid technology is becoming more and more prominent in our society today, and hybrid heating systems are among the best examples of the successful melding of different systems. Basically, a hybrid heating system is one that pairs a highly efficient heat pump with a back-up furnace. When temperatures drop to extreme lows, it is possible that a heat pump may be overwhelmed, and that its heating output may prove insufficient for maintaining a truly comfortable temperature in your home. That is not reason enough for most to give up on heat pumps, though, as it is not a constant issue. By backing up the incredibly efficient heat pump with a furnace, you have the peace of mind of knowing that, should the heat pump be overwhelmed, the furnace is there to pick up the slack.

Works in Summer As Well!

In addition to allowing homeowners to heat their homes both efficiently and reliably, it should be noted that a hybrid heating system can actually help you to keep comfortable during the summer season as well. This is because the heat pump in the system can reverse its refrigerant cycle in order to remove heat from the air in your home, venting it outdoors, much like a traditional air conditioner. With a hybrid heating system, you can truly have it all.
