If you're thinking of building a new home or replacing your existing heating system, there's been a recent breakthrough in HVAC systems that you may want to look into.
Carrier Corporation has recently released a hybrid, residential HVAC system which combines combines a high efficiency (SEER 13) heat pump with an 81% efficient gas furnace. The advantage? - You can change heat sources as energy prices fluctuate.
Heat pump users will experience the double benefit of cost savings and a more comfortable home when outside temperatures drop below 40° and the unit switches to gas heat instead of the heat pump's expensive and inefficient resistance heater.
Even though electrical power rates in the Mountain Home, Idaho area are among the lowest in the country, soaring demand for electricity and the deregulation of electrical utilities may make a hybrid system well worth considering
