Supported by the Performance Edge® thermostat and a variable-speed blower motor, this furnace will run in low stage up to 90% of the time. Longer, low-stage run times give you better energy efficiency, better temperature control, and increased comfort. It also assures you quieter performance.
Variable-speed blower operation also aids other system components and can help make your air conditioning system more efficient and improve summer dehumidification.
Additionally, SmartEvap™ technology which periodically stops the fan in “Constant ON” mode, gives cooling condensation time to drain away to prevent dehumidification. SmartEvap can reduce humidity by up to 10%.
SMART DUAL FUEL SWITCH FOR HEAT PUMPS DOES IT SAVE MONEY ON GAS AND ELECTRICITY BILLS?
The simple answer to this question is Yes! Compared to the majority of standard heating systems, the smart dual fuel switch for heat pumps is incredibly energy-efficient. Paired with a smart fuel switch, the dual heat pumps provide you with a combination of a gas furnace and an electric heat pump, allowing you to switch between both economically and efficiently. A smart dual fuel switch for heat pumps is the ideal choice as it provides you with the reliability of a gas furnace and the benefits of an electric heat pump. Here is everything you need to know about the smart dual fuel switch for heat pumps.
Smart Dual Fuel Switch for Heat Pumps Provides the Best of Both Worlds
With a smart dual fuel switch for heat pumps paired with your gas furnace and heat pump, you can capitalise on the most efficient functionalities of both systems. In addition to not emitting any harmful greenhouse gas, a heat pump is more efficient during the winter as, under ideal circumstances, it transfers 300% more energy than it consumes. However, thanks to the latest technology, the smart dual fuel switch for heat pumps makes it possible to convert between 150 % up to 350% of the energy consumed into heat.
