Hybrid-Heating: Is It Worth It?

January 7th, 2019

As many of you know, heating your home during our long and cold Connecticut winters can come at quite an expense. The more the temperature drops outside, the more heat you desire inside, increasing the amount of money you’ll spend on energy and fuel bills. But, what if we told you that there is a way that you could cut back on spending all while maintaining your comfort? Switching to a hybrid-heating system will allow you to do just that!

Most homeowners tend to utilize the combination of a forced-air heating system (like a furnace) and a central air conditioner for year-round comfort. However, installing a heat-pump could work just the same, as they are versatile and have the ability to switch from “cooling mode” to “heating mode.” Heat pumps are often more efficient than traditional heaters, keeping heat costs low. But, if it gets too cold, the heat pump will not work as efficiently. That is where hybrid-heating comes into play. Keep reading to learn more.
