Hybrid heating systems are a highly effective and energy efficient way to keep your home warm. They consist of a gas furnace and electric heat pump. As new construction trends continue to emphasize energy savings and environmentally friendliness, hybrid heating systems have become more and more popular.
Everyone understands what a furnace is, if not how it works. But heat pumps are still a bit of a mystery to many. How do they work? They use a low amount of energy to move heat from a “heat source” like the ground or air into a “heat sink” like your home. Basically, this means that it absorbs preexisting heat in the air or ground outside your home and pumps it inside your home.
And because they are powered by electricity, they don’t cost as much to operate as a natural gas or propane based furnace.
Hybrid heating systems are a whole house heating system that combines a traditional furnace and/or boiler with a heat pump. The presence of the heat pump helps the whole system operate more efficiently. That’s because for a heat pump to generate heat, it requires no actual combustion and therefore consumes no fuel. It device absorbs preexisting heat in the air or ground outside your home and pumps it inside your home.
