Dual Fuel Systems Make Heating Even More Efficient. You want to keep your home comfortable without outrageous energy costs, which is why you purchase high efficiency HVAC products. What you may not have known is that some of these products are not only energy efficient when operating themselves, but they can be combined to produce even greater efficiency to your family. At Olde Towne Heating & Air in Mount Pleasant, we offer 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 kicks in to provide the rest of the power you need to stay comfy. That means you’re only using gas fuel when it’s necessary. 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.
