Why Choose a Dual Fuel Air Conditioning System?

 

To say that your air conditioner is a vital component of your home in this area is a pretty big understatement. The heat of summer can get very intense, and you need to know that your AC is going to satisfy your cooling needs. That being said, it is understandable if you are having a bit of trouble in determining which type of air conditioner is right for your home. After all, advances in modern technology have left us with more options than ever before when it comes to the ways in which we may choose to cool our homes. One option that you are wise to consider is a dual fuel air conditioner in Tucson, AZ. If you decide that this is the right system for you, give Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning a call to schedule your installation.

What Is a Dual Fuel Air Conditioner?

A dual fuel air conditioner is, in fact, both a whole-house cooling and heating system, all in one convenient package. During the summer season, which is long and arduous around here, the system uses refrigerant to absorb heat from the air in your home. It then vents this heat outdoors, and repeats the process until the desired temperature is reached. However, during the winter season, the system will use electricity in order to heat your home. The system reverses its refrigerant flow, much like a heat as a heat pump would. Heat from the outdoors is absorbed and further compressed, and that heat is used in order to warm your home. When the temperature drops too low for the system to complete this function effectively, it turns to a backup gas furnace in order to heat your home.

Benefits of a Dual Fuel AC

The great benefit of a dual fuel air conditioner is the fact that you can heat and cool your home while using, for the most part, just one system. However, should the temperature really drop, you won’t have to worry about that system struggling to get enough heat from the air outside in order to warm your home. The furnace provides you with peace of mind – and consistent comfort – in such instances.
