Save on Heating Costs this winter with a Hybrid HVAC System in Boone

Not looking forward to another mountain winter this year in Boone? Many of us dread the winter season for various reasons, and one of those reasons is the financial burden of heating. One characteristic of Boone winters is inconsistency. Some days the temperatures are freezing and other days its warmer. We even have the occasional balmy day in the middle of winter. It can be frustrating because you need the furnace one day, and the next you nearly need the air conditioning. In this type of weather you will have better energy efficiency with a hybrid HVAC system in Boone.

Hybrid HVAC Systems use multiple technologies to achieve top heating and cooling efficiency

Hybrid HVAC systems are a combination of a heat pump and a furnace. Heat pumps are very efficient for heating and cooling because they transfer air rather than simply heating or cooling the air. On a cool day, heat pumps pull the existing warmth out of the air and transfer it inside where it is warmed up to the desired temperature and distributed through the ducts to all the rooms in your home. This is more efficient than a furnace because it is maximizing the warmth from the air outside, meaning it doesn’t have to work as hard to heat the air. Heat pumps excel in moderate climates where the temperature rarely drops below 40 degrees Fahrenheit. However, when temperatures do drop to near freezing or below, there is not enough warmth in the air for the heat pump to pull from, and it struggles to heat your home to the desired temperature. In a hybrid system, this is when the furnace kicks in to pick up the slack. Hybrid systems have a sensor that reads the outdoor temperature. When the temperature reaches a preset degree (to be determined by your HVAC expert) the furnace takes over, using gas to heat the air and distribute it throughout your home. This way, you use less propane each year because the furnace only runs on the coldest days of the year.
