Dual Fuel Systems Make Heating Even More Efficient. Many of the fuel systems we provide at Central Heating & Plumbing in New Castle improve your home’s efficiency more when they work in partnership with another Lennox® system than they by themselves. The same is true for for our dual fuel capacity gas furnaces and heat pumps, which can pair up to offer higher efficiency and greater comfort for your home. Both systems operate efficiently on their own, but when you jointly use the gas furnace and the heat pump, you’re taking advantage of both gas and electric fuel. The two systems will switch between electric or gas heat in accordance with your desired indoor air temperature and the operating efficiency of each unit. This works the same way as a hybrid car, alternating between electric power at low speed and gas power when there’s a higher demand for maximum MPG. You’ll be able to optimize your energy use, and you could lower your heating costs. Most times the electric heat is used until the outdoor temperatures reach about 32 degrees Fahrenheit before switching to gas. Not only will you feel comfortable, but you can feel good about the efficiency of your dual fuel systems, too.
