Dual Fuel Systems Make Heating Even More Efficient. You want to keep your home comfortable without paying a fortune on utility bills, which is why you have high efficiency HVAC products. What you might not have known is that some of these products are not only energy efficient when operating themselves, but they can be combined to offer even greater efficiency to your family. At Alan Energy Services Air Conditioning and Heating Company in Elmhurst, we have furnaces that work with heat pumps to create a dual fuel system. Combining a gas furnace with an electric heat pump gives you the ability to use two different fuel types: gas and electricity. Once the temperature becomes too cold for your heat pump to run efficiently (usually around 32 degrees Fahrenheit), the furnace provides the additional power you need to stay warm. That means you’re only using gas fuel when it’s needed. Dual fuel systems switch between the two types of heat, which optimizes energy uses and lowers heating costs. That’s a good solution, if we may say so ourselves. Explore our gas furnace and heat pump offerings to learn more about the systems individually. Give Alan Energy Services Air Conditioning and Heating Company a buzz at 630-833-1100 or make an appointment to discuss adding dual fuel capabilities to your home. We’re in Elmhurst – just down the road and available to help.
