The Hybrid Heat™ dual-fuel system combines a furnace with a heat pump, rather than an air conditioner. According to the manufacturer, the system will allow homeowners to save money for years to come, since they can always choose which source of heat they would like to use, based on the cost of gas and electricity. Some Carrier heat pumps feature Puron® non-ozone-depleting refrigerant, which will help homeowners prepare for the elimination of R-22 in 2010. The Hybrid Heat Operating Cost Calculator is a software program the dealer uses to enter information about the oil and gas prices in the homeowner’s area, and based on those costs, it will give the homeowner annual savings estimates of a Hybrid Heat dual-fuel system. The tool will also provide a precise temperature at which the system should switch from using electricity to gas, in order to ensure maximum savings.
