Is A Duel Fuel System for You?

Dual fuel systems are the "have your cake and eat it, too" of heating. You see, gas furnaces aren’t very efficient when the outside temperature is between 40 and 50 degrees; a heat pump is more than sufficient in Hickory, NC. However, as the temperature starts to dip below this range, the efficiency of the heat pump will begin to suffer. At this point, the dual fuel system will automatically switch into gas-mode. The system will switch modes when appropriate, thus always giving you the most efficient option for your heating.

If you don’t already have an air conditioner, dual fuel system replacement is a good choice. Not only will you upgrade to a more versatile heater, but you’ll be able to double that investment with air conditioning.

Common Repair Issues

Is it time to call in for dual fuel system repair? We don’t expect you to be as knowledgeable as an HVAC technician, but we can certainly give you some signs to look out for.

  • Higher Than Usual Heating Bills: Spikes in your heating bill are almost always a sign that something is wrong with the system. Not just repairs, but a thorough dual fuel system maintenance check of all the parts will be able to clear up the problem.
  • Uneven Heating or Cooling: This can be due to the unit itself, or perhaps because of the ductwork used to transport the air. Either way, we can take a look for you.
  • Odd Noises: If your heater is making foreign noises, that’s almost never a good sign; a broken part is most likely to blame. Shut off the unit for now and call in for dual fuel system repairs.
