Save Money and Energy with a Hybrid HVAC System Installation
You’ve heard of hybrid cars. Maybe you own one, or you know someone who does. Hybrid vehicles get excellent gas mileage because they use a combination of electricity and gasoline to achieve better fuel efficiency. Why are hybrid cars such a hot commodity these days? Because it is considered better for the environment and the cost savings on fuel. What does this have to do with heating and cooling? Unlike gasoline, the price of natural gas is rising. In fact, natural gas prices are higher than ever. But what can you do about it? Install a hybrid heating and cooling system. These hybrid systems use a combination of electricity and natural gas to more efficiently heat and cool homes and buildings.
How does a Hybrid HVAC System work?
Hybrid HVAC systems in Burlington use a combination of a heat pump and a furnace. Heat pumps work by transferring warm or cool air from outside to the inside. Heat pumps work well when the weather gets chilly because they capture what warmth remains in the air and transfers it inside. However, when the weather gets extremely cold, the system works like a furnace. A furnace generates its own heat using natural gas and blows warm air through a system of ducts and vents into the home or building. Heat pumps work well when the weather gets warm because they transfer cool air from outside to the inside. But in extremely hot weather, the air conditioner will kick in, using electricity and refrigerant to create cool air
How does a hybrid HVAC system save energy?
A hybrid HVAC system is a furnace, heat pump, and air conditioner all in one that uses a combination of electricity and natural gas. Hybrid systems have state of the art technology that allows it to determine which part of the system should be used based on the weather. Using this combination of heating and cooling resources, the hybrid system maximizes the use of all resources and saves both electricity and natural gas. You may find your bill to be as much as 40% lower once you switch to a hybrid.
How much does a hybrid system cost?
The actual prices vary between manufacturers and locations. But on average, a hybrid HVAC system will cost only about $1000 more for a new system compared to other systems. But the energy savings you will enjoy for years to come will be worth the up-front cost. If your current system is 7 or 8 years old, you should consider replacement to save as much as 30% on your heating and cooling costs.
The technology of a hybrid HVAC system provides you with the optimum comfort level. No matter the weather, your hybrid system will keep you comfortable at a fraction of the cost. And you can feel good about the fact that you are playing a part in conserving the world’s energy resources.
