Dual Fuel Systems Make Heating Even More Efficient. You want to keep your home operating with lower energy costs, which is why you bought high efficiency HVAC products. What you may not have realized is that certain products are not only energy efficient working by themselves, but they can be combined to offer even greater efficiency to your family. At Rapids Sheet Metal Works Inc in Wisconsin Rapids, we offer furnaces that work with heat pumps to create a dual fuel system. Combining a gas furnace with an electric heat pump gives you the ability to use two different fuel types: gas and electricity. Once the temperature becomes too cold for your heat pump to operate efficiently (usually around 32 degrees Fahrenheit), the furnace starts up to provide the extra power you need to stay warm. That means you’re only using gas fuel when it’s needed. Dual fuel systems alternate between the two types of heat, which optimizes energy uses and lowers heating costs. That’s a good solution, if we may say so ourselves. Check out our gas furnace and heat pump offerings to find details about each system.

We’re in Wisconsin Rapids – just down the road and available to help.
