What is a Dual Fuel System in HVAC Units?

The winter and summer seasons can be starkly different in Florida. Freezing winter days offer an excellent challenge for HVAC systems to keep your places warm, but it’s not always easy to use the same system on hotter days to keep your homes cool. Here dual fuel systems come in handy. This potential solution uses two strategies to give you more sustainable and comfortable results.

When replacing your electric furnace with propane or gas, you might get concerned about the efficiency of this system. It is natural to get overwhelmed by all types of information available. The professionals of Diamond Air Design come forward to give you a clearer idea of what is a dual fuel system in HVAC units and how it can make your units more efficient.

We have installed thousands of furnaces, air conditioners, and heat pumps in Florida. With our deep market knowledge and years of experience, we will help you determine if the dual-fuel system is the right choice for you.

Dual fuel system

What is a Dual Fuel System: A Brief Overview

The dual fuel system uses a gas-powered electric heat pump or propane furnace. The system uses two different heating sources that alternate between two fuel sources. Unlike traditional gas systems, dual fuel allows you to use your heat pump for heat first, having a gas furnace as backup.

A dual-fuel system uses the power of a gas furnace and the efficiency of a heat pump to keep you comfortable. During the hotter days, your dual fuel heat pump works as an air conditioning unit by removing the hot air from your home and distributing the cooler air through the furnace’s blower.

Advantages of Dual Fuel Systems

Homeowners highly appreciate dual fuel systems due to their following perks:

  • Efficiency

Energy efficiency is the biggest appeal for dual fuel systems. The system generally uses a less expensive option to run at a time. A gas furnace is also less costly to use on cold nights compared to traditional electric pumps. The 2-strategies approach of dual fuel systems aims to deliver an ideal indoor temperature with ease and efficiency.

  • Improved Comfort

Dual fuel systems are also famous for delivering improved comfort throughout your home. It saves you from manually balancing your heating and AC usage by switching effortlessly between heating and cooling. This feature of the dual fuel system is highly appreciable in autumn and spring when you experience fairly substantial temperature fluctuations in Florida.

  • Environmentally Friendly

In addition to energy efficiency, dual-fuel heat pumps are environmentally friendly. The system can drastically reduce your carbon footprint by utilizing electricity to heat your spaces. A dual-fuel system can also reduce fossil fuel burning by up to 90%.

Select a Perfect Dual Fuel System

Selecting a perfect dual-fuel system can be overwhelming, especially if you purchase it for the first time. The professionals of Diamond Air Design are well-versed in HVAC installation and maintenance. We can help you determine if the dual fuel system satisfies your need well.

I engaged Diamond Air Design to replace two heat pump systems at my residence. From my initial contact to the completion of the project, I received nothing but the highest level of professional service. Brandon and his installation team did meticulous work, completing the project on time and exactly as promised. Diamond Air is a family-owned business with a sterling reputation. From my experience I understand exactly how they attained and why they deserve that reputation. Highly recommended.

This is one of the 3 companies I had out to my house. I’m very happy Diamond Air was one I contacted. They offered exactly what I needed, did not upsell me and were right on target on what would solve my issue. Preston, my Service Tech, was ready to answer my questions, was super knowledgeable, professional and just a charm beaming with honesty, kindness and all I could pray for in a service tech. You will not be disappointed putting your A/C equipment in their hands! Thank you Diamond Air Team! You have my business.

I had an American Standard Platinum HVAC System installed. Brandon, Stewart, and Preston did the install work. They were scheduled to start at 8:00 am. Stewart arrived at 7:45 am and immediately went to work. Brandon and Preston arrived at 8:00 am with the new HVAC System. I tried to offer them drinks and something to eat but they were more concerned with completing the job. The crew was absolutely fantastic. They completed the install work in about 7 hours. They never stopped working until the job was completely finished. They did an outstanding job installing the new system. The company even filed my warranty paper work for me. I had to do nothing but sit back at let them do all the work, from the install, warranty registration, and setting up the county inspection. They even provided financing for 0% interest rate for 60 months. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend Daimond Air Design for HVAC System Replacement!!!
