Experience the Comfort of a Dual Fuel System. You want to keep your home comfortable without outrageous energy costs, which is why you bought high efficiency HVAC products. What you might not have known is that some of these products are not only energy efficient when operating themselves, but they can be combined to offer even greater efficiency to your family. At Hillcrest Air Conditioning & Plumbing in Bakersfield, we offer furnaces that work with heat pumps to create a dual fuel system. Combining a gas furnace with an electric heat pump allows you the ability to use two different fuel types: gas and electricity. Once the temperature becomes too cold for your heat pump to work efficiently (usually around 32 degrees Fahrenheit), the furnace provides the rest of the power you need to stay warm. That means you’re only using gas fuel when it’s necessary. Dual fuel systems alternate between the two types of heat, which optimizes energy uses and decreases heating costs. That’s a solution we like to see. Check out our gas furnace and heat pump offerings to learn more about the systems individually. Give Hillcrest Air Conditioning & Plumbing a call at 661-437-3499 or set up an appointment to discuss adding dual fuel capabilities to your home. We’re in Bakersfield – just down the road and eager to help.
