While a heat pump is a good fit for many homes in Miami, they do not always provide ample heat when the mercury gets particularly low in January and February. For those that want to ensure heat on every night of the year, regardless of temperature, a Fort Lauderdale dual fuel system might be the best fit for you.
If you are interested in learning more about an installation of a dual fuel system in Atlanta or other metro area home, or have an existing dual fuel system and need an expert to maintain or service it, contact Solar Bear today.
Dual Fuel System Installation in Miami
Before selecting a dual fuel system for your home, it is important that we perform a full heat load calculation to determine how much capacity your system needs to perform properly. This process takes only an hour and can be done at the same time as we discuss the needs of your family in terms of budget and features.
Capacity is important because a system that is too large or too small will not heat your home properly, but so too is energy efficiency. A dual fuel system has multiple energy efficiency ratings – a SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) and HSPF (Heating Seasonal Performance Factor) for the heat pump and an AFUE for the gas furnace – so it is important to discuss the implications of these ratings with a technician before making a decision.
If you have an existing system that must be removed or any components such as a flue liner or air handler that must be replaced to accommodate the new dual fuel system, we will discuss this as well.
Hollywood and Weston Dual Fuel System Maintenance
For those with existing dual fuel systems in Sunrise or other area homes, maintenance is a very important part of keeping the system is good working order for its entire lifespan. We recommend you have annual maintenance performed on your dual fuel system to check the entire system and test it for operation before the heating season starts. Because your dual fuel system will likely be used in the summer for cooling as well, it is recommended that you have a second maintenance visit in the spring.
