How Do Dual Fuel Heat Pumps Work?
Essentially, a hybrid heat pump system combines the efficiency of a heat pump with the power of a natural (or propane) gas furnace. Heat pumps are two–in–one systems in that they provide effective cooling in the summer by transferring the heat from inside your Hendersonville, TN home and expelling it outdoors, and then reverse the process in the winter to provide you with heat.
However, a heat pump can begin to lose its efficiency when outdoor temperatures drop too low. A hybrid heater, though, automatically selects when to switch on the back–up gas furnace to assist your heat pump when it begins to lose efficiency.

Choosing Your Dual Fuel Heat Pump
Just like any other cooling or heating system, dual fuel heat pumps come in a range of models, sizes, and costs. If you prefer, you could go with a variable speed model that helps you to save even more energy. Or if you are looking to for something that fits your budget a little better, you may choose the single–speed option.
In order to make the best choice for your new hybrid cooling and heating system, simply consult with the best, the professionals here at Covenant Heating and Cooling. We’ll design the right heat pump and furnace combination that meets your home and your family’s specific needs, while keeping your budget in mind.
Caring for Your Dual Fuel Heat Pump
It’s not enough to simply rely on the professional installation of your hybrid system—though that is a good start. You want to ensure that your hybrid heat pump is well cared for so that it will operate as efficiently and effectively as it should for the years to come.
This means investing in our Covenant Care maintenance plan, and ensuring that your system is checked on a regular basis. While a traditional heating or cooling system needs this service once a year, a heat pump should be professionally maintained biannually, since it is used twice as much.
