Dual Fuel Systems Make Heating Even More Efficient. Many of the fuel systems we offer at Colvin's Heating and Cooling in Excelsior Springs improve your home’s efficiency more when they work in tandem with another Lennox® system than they by themselves. The same is true for for our dual fuel capacity gas furnaces and heat pumps, which can pair up to provide higher efficiency and greater comfort for your home. Both systems work well alone, but when you marry the gas furnace and the heat pump, you’re taking advantage of both gas and electric fuel. The two systems will alternate between electric or gas heat depending on your chosen indoor air temperature and the operating efficiency of each unit. This works the same way as a hybrid car, alternating between electric power at low speed and gas power when there’s a higher demand for maximum MPG. You’ll be able to optimize your energy use, and you could reduce your heating budget. Typically the electric heat is used until the outdoor temperatures reach about 32 degrees Fahrenheit before switching to gas. Not only will you feel comfortable, but you can feel good about the efficiency of your dual fuel systems, too.

Colvin's Heating and Cooling is located in Excelsior Springs, so you can easily schedule an appointment to have us do an in-home consultation and show you how a dual fuel system could work for your home.
