How Hybrid Heating Can Keep You Warm This Winter

February 2, 2020

Are you searching for an energy-efficient heating system for your Saint Augustine, Florida, home? If so, consider installing a hybrid heating system. Learn how a hybrid heating system combines an electric heat pump and a gas furnace for superior heating during winter.

Optimal Heating Source for Any Temperature

Have you been debating between installing a furnace and using a heat pump year-round? If so, you’ll appreciate the versatility that hybrid heating systems offer. These systems package a furnace and a heat pump together for seamless heating no matter what the winter weather has in store.

At Ocean State Air Conditioning & Heating, we often recommend the Comfort 14 Packaged Hybrid Heat System. It’s an innovative system that automatically uses the appropriate heating option for present conditions. On a mild fall or spring day, you’ll stay warm with the heat pump. But on cold winter nights, the gas furnace will keep you comfortable.

Superior Energy Efficiency

Advanced HVAC technology makes choosing an eco-friendly heating system easier than ever. Our hybrid heat systems are some of the most efficient all-in-one solutions on the market. The Performance 15 Packaged Hybrid Heat System features an 8.5 heating seasonal performance factor (HSPF) and 81 percent annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE), making this system efficient in any condition. The system also uses a two-stage compressor and a multi-speed blower, both features which can ensure that you’ll stay warm all winter while lowering your overall energy consumption.

Lower Utility Bills

If you often find yourself dialing back the thermostat to save money during winter, you can look forward to lower utility bills with a hybrid heat system, and you won’t have to sacrifice comfort to do so. Since our hybrid heat systems seamlessly switch between heating sources, they can keep your energy costs low while maintaining a comfortable humidity level and temperature range.
