What is the HYBRID HEAT® dual fuel system by Carrier
With today’s rising uncertainty surrounding utility costs, homeowners are becoming more and more interested in finding the best, most economical solution for indoor heating and cooling.
Burning money is no way to heat your home.
Gas? Or electric? With utility costs being so unpredictable these days, you can waste a lot of energy trying to guess which fuel source is going to be most economical this winter. Literally and figuratively. That’s where our intelligent Hybrid Heat dual fuel system comes in—because it does all the thinking for you.
Stay warm all winter, cool all summer and a little richer all year long.
In combining an Infinity® heat pump and gas furnace with an Infinity control, this unique system is unbelievably efficient and almost Einstein-level smart. The system gauges the outside air temperature and then selects the fuel source that’s most cost-efficient for the conditions.
In cool weather, for example, using your gas furnace may be overkill and an electric heat pump could be all you need to heat your home. The system recognizes this—engaging your heat pump to save on fossil fuel use which can, ultimately, save you money.
When temperatures start to drop into the frozen popsicle range outside, a heat pump may not cut it, and the furnace becomes necessary. No problem. Your system will shift modes, never missing a beat to keep your home a cozy, barefoot paradise.
Another benefit of the heat pump is that—despite the name—it also works to cool the air. So when the weather changes and the heat waves start coming, the heat pump actually does the work of an air conditioner, so those ice cubes will keep clinking in your lemonade.
Carrier’s ultimate HYBRID HEAT dual fuel system includes an Infinity® 96 gas furnace with our Infinity® 19 heat pump to provide soothing, superior comfort during both heat pump and furnace operation. This powerful combination can deliver heated air temperatures that are warmer than most traditional heat pumps, so air from your vents feels warmer to the touch.
Because a Carrier HYBRID HEAT dual fuel system also provides cool, indoor comfort when it’s hot outside, this system becomes your total, year-round indoor comfort solution. And with the recent increase in the SEER rating (SEER = Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) of air conditioners and heat pumps, a HYBRID HEAT dual fuel system could also save you money during the cooling season.
No matter which control best fits your needs, you can count on automatic control of your HYBRID HEAT dual fuel system.
We will select a balance point that tells your control when it’s best to select electric heat and when it’s time to switch to furnace operation. As utility rates in your area change, this balance point can be easily adjusted by Nor Cal Mechanical. To get the best efficiency from your system, we recommend taking advantage of the seven-day programmability to select a comfort schedule custom-fit to your lifestyle.
Dual Fuel Hybrid Heating usually can be achieved with most newer furnaces and simple installation of heat pump condenser and matching meter device.
