Dual Fuel Systems Make Heating Even More Efficient. You want to keep your home operating with lower energy costs, which is why you purchase high efficiency HVAC products. What you may not have known is that a selection of these products are not only energy efficient when operating themselves, but they can be combined to produce even greater efficiency to your family. At Colvin's Inc in Excelsior Springs, we have furnaces that work with heat pumps to create a dual fuel system. Combining a gas furnace with an electric heat pump enables you to use two different fuel types: gas and electricity. Whenever the weather becomes too cold for your heat pump to run efficiently (usually around 32 degrees Fahrenheit), the furnace provides the additional power you need to stay warm. That means you’re only using gas fuel when your desired temperature requires it. Dual fuel systems rotate between the two types of heat, which optimizes energy uses and minimizes heating costs. That’s a solution you can feel good about. Explore our gas furnace and heat pump offerings to find information about each product.
