Dual Fuel Systems Make Heating Even More Efficient. You want to keep your home operating with lower energy costs, which is why you bought high efficiency HVAC products. What you may not have known is that a selection of these products are not only energy efficient working by themselves, but they can be combined to produce even greater efficiency to your family. At Danco Heating & Cooling in Minocqua, we carry furnaces that work with heat pumps to create a dual fuel system. Combining a gas furnace with an electric heat pump gives you the ability to use two different fuel types: gas and electricity. Whenever the weather becomes too cold for your heat pump to run efficiently (usually around 32 degrees Fahrenheit), the furnace starts up to provide the additional power you need to stay comfy. That means you’re only using gas fuel when it’s necessary. Dual fuel systems rotate between the two types of heat, which optimizes energy uses and decreases heating costs. That’s a solution we like to see. Check out our gas furnace and heat pump offerings to learn more about the systems individually. Give Danco Heating & Cooling a ring at 715-356-7000 or schedule an appointment to discuss adding dual fuel capabilities to your home. We’re in Minocqua – just down the road and eager to help.
