Dual Fuel Systems Make Heating Even More Efficient. You want to keep your home operating with lower energy costs, which is why you bought high efficiency HVAC products. What you might not have known is that a selection of these products are not only energy efficient working by themselves, but they can be combined to offer even greater efficiency to your family. At Watts Electrical & Air Conditioning in Columbia, we have furnaces that work with heat pumps to create a dual fuel system. Combining a gas furnace with an electric heat pump allows you the ability to use two different fuel types: gas and electricity. When it’s too cold for your heat pump to run efficiently (usually around 32 degrees Fahrenheit), the furnace provides the extra power you need to stay comfy. That means you’re only using gas fuel when it’s necessary. Dual fuel systems switch between the two types of heat, which optimizes energy uses and minimizes heating costs. That’s a solution we like to see. Check out our gas furnace and heat pump offerings to find information about each product.

We’re in Columbia – just down the road and ready to help.
