“Weird Contraption” from the 1980’s is Now Slimmer, Way Smarter, and Ready to Slash Up to 47% Off Your Energy Bill
Yes, I thought it was weird then too. But that was the era of blue spiked hair as a fashion statement, so what do I know? Yet this inventor’s “thing” had promise. It was just a few years too early.
If you heard anything about hybrid cars, you know they’re the next wave in ultra fuel and energy savings. But did you know that same technology is available to reduce energy costs in your home?
It’s been around since the 1980’s but as with automobiles, the spike in fuel recently has caused an upsurge in popularity. Like hybrid cars, dual home heating systems work by splitting operations between fuel and electric sources. In this case, between a heat pump and a furnace.
The heat pump draws free air from the outdoors and disburses it throughout the home, creating a consistent mellow heat. Most systems are programmed to switch automatically to the furnace at the “comfort” balance point.
The furnace is then able to deliver warmer heat provided by gas or oil creating warmth when it’s cold outside.
What Does This Mean to You?
Okay, look at your heating bill. Not just this month, but all season long. Now, mentally put half that money in your wallet. Feel better? Anyway, the point is that it doesn’t appear that energy costs are coming down anytime soon. When the popularity and savings generated by this system gains strength, so will the prices for them. Simple economics.
Just know that hybrid systems in your home – just like in cars – will be the ‘hot’ things to have. And you read it here first!
When you call for your service this season, ask for a free no-obligation survey to see how much one of these systems could save you. (Hey, the savings might pay for it!) Either way, just know we appreciate you and look forward to helping you in any way we can. Stay warm!
