Riverside, CA Dual Fuel Systems

If you live in this part of the country, you get to enjoy some pretty mild winter weather. That is what makes the heat pump such a popular home heating system in this area. It can handle our winter temperatures just fine, and it can also double as a home cooling system. Perfect, right? Well, all may not be as perfect as it seems.

Some homeowners still like to have a full-on heating system at their disposal, and using a dual fuel system in Riverside, CA is a great way to enjoy the best of both worlds. Of course, even a system as unique and comprehensive as a dual fuel system requires professional services in order to function at peak performance levels. That is why you should leave your dual fuel system services to RKM Heating and Air Conditioning.

Why Choose a Dual Fuel System?

A dual fuel system is a single HVAC system that combines both an air–source heat pump and a gas furnace. That means that you’ll be using the heat pump to cool your home throughout the summer season and also to heat it up for the majority of the winter season. So why would you add a furnace to the mix if it doesn’t typically get cold enough in our area for a heat pump to fail to heat a home?

Because it can get cold enough that using a heat pump is actually less efficient than a furnace. With a hybrid heat dual fuel system, the switch to the gas furnace will be made automatically when it is the more efficient option. Once the heat pump can catch back up, it will take over again. You don’t even have to think about it, but you still get the benefits of hybrid heat in Riverside, CA! That’s a deal worth considering.
