Dual Fuel Heating System Services in Northern VA, DC & Baltimore Metro Areas

Anyone replacing an air conditioner could benefit by replacing it with a heat pump instead. This is the ideal time, it is only a little more than an air conditioner, but it will save on heating bills!

What Does Dual Fuel Heating Mean?

Dual fuel means using two fuels to heat the home instead of one. In most cases, this means combining a high-efficiency electric heat pump with a gas-powered furnace.

A heat pump is a home comfort unit that will heat your home in the winter and cool it efficiently in the summer.

When Is a Dual Fuel System Beneficial?

There are several situations that lend themselves to the installation of a dual fuel system. You may want to consider dual fuel if:

  • You’re building a new home.
  • You’re considering adding central air conditioning to an existing home.
  • You’re planning to replace window air conditioning units or a worn-out central air system.
  • You want to extend the life of your gas furnace.

How Dual Fuel Systems Maximize Energy Efficiency

In the summer, the heat pump cools the same way any air conditioning system does.

During mild winter temperatures, that heat pump operates at an incredible 200% to 300% efficiency. So you save by not using the gas furnace to heat the home on these mild days, great!

During the coldest times, a gas furnace burns at its greatest efficiency.

So by using these two sources of heat, you can actually heat your home for less than if you use only one source of heat. An outdoor thermostat will enable whichever unit will most efficiently heat the home at any given outdoor temperature.

What Our Clients Are Saying
testimonial_image The tech was at my home less than 10 minutes and gone within 20 minutes due to having my A/C up and running. I really appreciate his response to my home and working with my son due to me being out of town, but we spoke on the phone.
testimonial_image The technician arrived promptly, wore a mask, was very courteous and professional. I am generally very satisfied with service by United Air Temp. In addition to good service (they repair well), it is easy to speak to a person, and promptly. Thank you.
testimonial_image Great service! I called because I was under the impression the AC was not working upstairs. Someone came on the same day, checked out the system, and ensured everything was working. He was polite, thorough, and friendly.
testimonial_image Tech was very attentive and professional. He went out his way to explain everything to me as he was doing it. I appreciated him keeping me informed.
testimonial_image The service technician was awesome! He spent the extra time necessary to ensure the leak in our system was fixed, the system fully recharged and everything was functioning as it should. He was extremely thorough and very professional. We are extremely pleased with the result!
