Air Source Heat Pump Tips | Dual Fuel Heating
A dual fuel heat pump is a heat pump with a gas furnace for backup heating rather than electric heat strips.
Air source heat pumps have a backup heating source. In most installations, the backup heating source is electric heat strips. Electric heat strips are very cheap to install in most cases. However, while electricity is generally regarded as 100% efficient, producing it is more costly than other heating methods. For a more efficient heat pump, consider a dual fuel heat pump, or a heat pump with a gas furnace for the backup heat source. It will be more costly to install, but your monthly bills will be reduced.
Bryant Heat Pump Reviews - Consumer Ratings | Top of the Line
The Bryant top-of-the-line model heat pump, Evolution Extreme, is a variable capacity system that runs only at the speed necessary to satisfy demand. Of course, it requires a matching air handler with the condenser and the Evolution Extreme controls along with a competent installation by a Bryant dealer to achieve the efficiency ratings on the equipment. For added efficiency and energy cost savings you can choose the dual fuel heat pump where you have a Bryant gas furnace inside for the backup heat pump heat and the heat pump condenser used when conditions are optimal for using heat pump heat.
