Dual Fuel Systems Make Heating Even More Efficient. A number of the fuel systems we carry at B&D Air Conditioning in Safford improve your home’s efficiency more when they work in partnership with another Lennox® system than they solo. This is the case with for our dual fuel capacity gas furnaces and heat pumps, which can be combined to provide higher efficiency and greater comfort for you. Both systems are great by themselves, 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 based on your chosen 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 with increased demand for maximum MPG. You’ll be able to optimize your energy use, and you could decrease your heating budget. Typically the electric heat is used until the outdoor temperatures fall to 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.
