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.

All manufacturers have their little problems from time to time but Goodman usually keeps it simple and therefore easier for heat pump troubleshooting. When the time comes for a heat pump repair - however, I would consider Goodman to be just as reliable as the others brand names and manufacturers. Proper installation is key when you buy a new air conditioner or heat pump. Make sure you select the right contractor for the job. Use our buyer’s advice section on our main site for helping in selecting a good HVAC contractor to install your new system.

Warranties | Goodman Heat Pump Reviews

Goodman offers average warranties for the HVAC industry. Some of Goodman’s premium equipment offers a lifetime warranty on the compressor with the remainder of the system getting the ten-year parts warranty. I can’t say this enough but your decision should not be based on a brand or on any fancy offerings they have for equipment or warranties. Your decision to purchase should be based on the quality of the contractor. A good contractor will stand behind the product they install. They will install it correctly and make sure you are happy.
