This system offers year-round comfort and long-term savings. In the winter, the heat pump captures the heat that is always present in the air outside and pulls it inside. A furnace burns natural gas to heat your home. When these two components are used together in a hybrid system, you can decide which form of heat to use- electric or gas- depending on current energy costs.
A hybrid split system also works efficiently in the summer, when the heat pump acts as an air conditioner, pulling heat out of your home and releasing it outdoors.
