Dual Fuel Systems Make Heating Even More Efficient. Many of the fuel systems we provide at Total Comfort in Franklin Lakes improve your home’s efficiency more when they work in partnership with another Lennox® system than they do alone. The same is true for for our dual fuel capacity gas furnaces and heat pumps, which can pair up to provide higher efficiency and greater comfort for your family. Both systems operate efficiently by themselves, but when you combine the gas furnace and the heat pump, you’re taking advantage of both gas and electric fuel. The two systems will alternate between electric or gas heat in accordance with your desired indoor air temperature and the operating efficiency of each unit. This works the same way as a hybrid car, alternating between electric power at low speed and gas power with demand for maximum MPG. You’ll be able to optimize your energy use, and you could decrease your heating budget. Usually the electric heat is used until the outdoor temperatures reach about 32 degrees Fahrenheit before switching to gas. Not only will you feel comfortable, but you can feel good about the efficiency of your dual fuel systems, too.

Total Comfort is located in Franklin Lakes, so you can easily arrange an appointment to have us do an in-home consultation and show you how a dual fuel system could work for your home.
