With a dual fuel/hybrid system you have a choice of using either gas or electric to heat your home. These systems are made up of an electric heat pump used in conjunction with a gas or oil furnace. This option can help homeowners save money. Hybrids give homeowners options down the road to choose what fuel you want to consume based on which utility costs less. These dual-fuel systems work best in areas where year-round temperatures are 32 degrees Fahrenheit and above -- generally in the southern and western climates of the U.S. The heat pump is stage one and typically provides both heat and air conditioning when outside temperatures are 32 to 38 degrees Fahrenheit and above. The gas or oil furnace is second stage, and is used in temperatures below 32 degrees
It is a system of more than one thermostat, electrically connected to a control panel which operates a number of dampers in your forced air heating/cooling system. Conditioned air is then distributed to various parts of your home as needed. The major components are the control panel, thermostats and dampers. These are used in conjunction with your existing forced air system. The major benefits to a zone system is the comfort, convenience and energy savings. The system maintains various desired temperatures throughout your home, thereby eliminating the need for constantly resetting your thermostat
