Dual Fuel Systems Make Heating Even More Efficient. You want to keep your home comfortable without outrageous energy costs, which is why you have high efficiency HVAC products. What you may not have known is that a selection of these products are not only energy efficient working by themselves, but they can be combined to deliver even greater efficiency to your family. At Sig Cox Heating and Air Conditioning in Augusta, we carry 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. Whenever the weather becomes too cold for your heat pump to operate efficiently (usually around 32 degrees Fahrenheit), the furnace starts up to provide the rest of the power you need to stay warm. That means you’re only using gas fuel when it’s needed. Dual fuel systems switch between the two types of heat, which optimizes energy uses and lowers heating costs. That’s a solution we like to see. Browse our gas furnace and heat pump offerings to learn more about the systems individually.
