An important decision that homeowners need to make regards how to cool or heat their homes. A variety of equipment is available to help you accomplish this goal. Even so, you might not be aware of the existence and usefulness of a hybrid AC split system. Typically, a hybrid AC split system consumes whatever fuel is available in a season. It can use electricity, gas, or oil to heat or cool your home.
Conventional HVAC setups include a furnace and an air conditioner whereas a hybrid split system comprises a furnace and a heat pump. With a hybrid system, you define an ideal temperature. If the outdoor temperature falls below or rises above this point, the system assumes control of your home’s temperature.
Here are four benefits of installing a hybrid split AC system in your home:
System and Fuel Flexibility
A hybrid split system is energy efficient as it can switch between oil and gas depending on affordability. What’s more, it can switch from the furnace mode to heat pump mode based on prevailing temperatures. As long as temperatures are above 40 degrees, heat pumps produce high energy levels while consuming less fuel. However, heat pumps are cost inefficient during winter. In contrast, when temperatures get low, an AC system switches from electric heat pump mode to furnace mode. This lets the system convert 90 percent of fuel into heat keeping your home warm and cozy.
