Dual Fuel Systems

Heat pumps are popular options for year-round comfort. But for some homes, it’s better to have a combination of an electric heat pump and a gas-powered or propane-powered furnace. These are dual fuel systems, a.k.a. dual fuel heat pumps, and Russell & Abbott offers full installation, replacement, repair, and maintenance for them. Let us help you find out if a dual fuel hybrid heat pump will deliver superior performance and efficiency for your house.

Heat Pump Versatility & Efficiency Plus Furnace Power

Hybrid heat pump systems can help overcome one of the few drawbacks of a heat pump: a loss of energy efficiency during extreme cold temperatures. A dual fuel system has a backup furnace to provide the heat necessary when the heat pump is in danger of an efficiency drop. This gives a home the convenience of having the best of electric heating and gas heating in one system—as well as having an air conditioner for summer.
