What is Hybrid Heat?

With today’s rising uncertainty surrounding utility costs, homeowners nationwide are becoming more interested in finding the best, most economical solution for indoor heating and cooling. With this in mind, Carrier is constantly innovating and releasing new products designed to provide maximum comfort and efficiency along with maximum savings. One such product to hit the market is the new Hybrid Heat. With a traditional heating and cooling system, if you want to save more, you have to use it less. A HYBRID HEAT dual fuel system combines intelligent control for both gas and electric heating to create a system that can react to changing conditions. The HYBRID HEAT does all the thinking for you. By combining an Infinity heat pump and gas furnace with an Infinity control, the system gauges the outside air temperature and then selects the fuel source that is most cost-efficient for the conditions. A HYBRID HEAT Dual Fuel system provides cozy warmth and cool comfort in one economical, efficient system. 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 will save you money. During winter, the gas furnace or heat pump delivers heated air throughout your home. Your system will shift modes, never missing a beat to keep your home comfortable. 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. A HYBRID HEAT dual fuel system will automatically select the fuel source most efficient for your home, which means you’ll stay warm in the winter, cool in the summer and save money all year long. Upon installation, Spencer Air Conditioning and Heating will educate you on the use of your new thermostat, which will automatically select a balance point that tells your control when it’s best to select electric Heat Pump heating, or when it’s time to switch to furnace operation. The system comes with a 7 day programming feature that can be controlled using Wi-Fi via your smartphone or personal computer to maintain a comfortable schedule day and night. Your current system can be easily retrofitted to a HYBRID HEAT dual fuel system. A home that is currently using a gas furnace for heat and an AC can be replaced with a high efficiency gas furnace and a high efficiency heat pump. Many utility companies offer rebates for installation and electric bills can be reduced by as much as 50% year round. With the rising cost of utilities this is a great way to be proactive about your future recurring utility bills, as well as your indoor air quality and comfort.
