With a dual fuel system you get the best of both HVAC worlds: hot or cold air when you need it most. This hybrid heating and cooling system combines a traditional heat pump with a gas or oil furnace to provide your home with an energy efficient HVAC system that you can use all year long.
The heat pump in the system works like a central air conditioner in the summer months by transferring hot air out of your home until your thermostat reads your desired temperature. The heat pump also does the majority of the work in the fall and spring months by providing cost-efficient heat during milder temperatures.
The dual fuel furnace takes over and works to heat your entire home when the temperature takes a dip during the cold, winter months. Furnaces have one function, converting fuel into heat quickly and efficiently. When it’s cold outside, the furnace in your dual fuel system will do just that.

If you’re interested in a dual fuel system, Pro-Tech HVAC Home can help you find the combination that’s right for your home. We’ll help you every step of the way, from performing a Manual J Load Calculation to determine the correct system size, to a hassle-free installation with a dedicated on-site Project Manager.
The first step in choosing a dual fuel system is to properly size the heat pump for the cooling capacity your home needs. The next step is to choose the furnace capacity you’ll require to maintain your wintertime comfort needs.
Without the proper sizing, your system could be too small or too big for your home. If the system is too small, it overexerts itself to meet your energy needs and will not properly cool your space. Not only will the unit constantly run, but it will also run up your electric bill. On the other hand, an oversized system will reach the goal temperature too quickly, thereby causing it to cycle off and on and wear down quicker.
At Pro-Tech HVAC Home, we perform a Manual J Load Calculation to determine what size is correct for your home.
