How Does a Dual Fuel AC System Work?

As much as we run our air conditioners in Tucson, AZ, energy costs can quickly add up. If you are looking for a great way in which to cool your home more efficiently, investing in a dual fuel AC system is an option well worth your consideration. Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning installs and services quality dual fuel air conditioners from some of the most trusted manufacturers in the industry, and we are happy to help you to live more comfortably while paying less money to do so. Explore your options carefully, enlist the help of knowledgeable professionals when choosing an air conditioner for installation in your home, and trust our technicians to have that air conditioner up and running at peak performance and efficiency levels.

Dual fuel air conditioners are much more than just a quality air conditioning system. These air conditioning systems are actually capable of heating one’s home, as well, much like a heat pump. The main difference between the two is the fact that a dual fuel system combines an efficient heat pump with a backup heating system, generally a gas furnace. This offers the homeowner great peace of mind should temperatures dip to a level too low for a heat pump to handle effectively. The switch over to the backup heating system is seamless, so you won’t have to worry about recognizing the issue and switching your heating system over manually.

During the summer months, your dual fuel air conditioner uses refrigerant in order to absorb heat from the air in your home. Running on electricity, the system pumps hot refrigerant out of your home to the outdoor unit, at which point the heat is released into the air outside. The process then starts over, until your home is at the cooled temperature that you’ve set at your thermostat. In the winter, for the most part, the electric heat pump continues to do most of the work. Ambient heat from the air outside is brought into your home, after the refrigerant has been compressed, and that air heats your home for quality comfort and with astounding efficiency. When temperatures are too chilly for the heat pump to warm your home effectively alone, the backup system kicks on to pick up the slack.

With a dual fuel air conditioning system, you can heat and cool your home with great affordability while enjoying the reliability that a gas furnace has to offer on particularly cold nights. Just keep in mind that any such system must be professionally installed and serviced if it is to function properly and as effectively as possible. That is why you should schedule your dual fuel air conditioning services with Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning.

I called Goettl to get a second opinion on a/c repair options or replacement. Peter Medelez conducted a very thorough system check and confirmed all the same issues previously identified but found an additional issue; tipping the scale to full replacement. We appreciated his professionalism and knowledge: answering all our questions and explaining the issues and options. We ultimately chose Goettl for the replacement option due to their price and professionalism.

William and Cameron were knowledgeable, friendly, professional, respectful and put on plastic booties over their shoes when they came into the house. Our pets were comfortable with them and that says a lot. We will definitely ask for them again in the future if our AC has any issues.
