One of the comfort systems that we install in homes is the heat pump, which is capable of working as both a heating and air conditioning system as needed. Heat pumps offer many advantages, but they can run up against one drawback: loss of energy efficiency when the outside temperature starts to plummet past freezing. Does this mean that a heat pump is off the table for a place like Twin Falls, ID that experiences chilly winters? No, not all! There’s an option called a dual fuel heat pump that can overcome the efficiency problem standard heat pumps may deal with.

Why You May Consider Installing a Dual Fuel Heat Pump
If you know a bit about how heat pumps work, you’ll know that a heat pump when it’s in heating mode must draw thermal energy from the outside in order to send it inside. There is always some heat in the outdoor air, no matter how cold it gets, so a heat pump has a source of energy all the time. But for many heat pumps, it requires too much strain to draw heat from extremely cold air, usually when the temperature is below freezing. When the thermometer drops below what’s known as the economic balance point (which differs depending on relatively humidity), these heat pumps will turn inefficient.
What a dual fuel system does is connect the heat pump to a backup heater that uses a different fuel source. Usually this is a natural gas or propane furnace. When the temperature drops below the economic balance point, the furnace activates and assists the heat pump with maintaining warmth indoors. As soon as the heat pump no longer needs the help of the backup system, the furnace automatically shuts off. You won’t end up paying much more to run a hybrid heat pump than a standard heat pump, since the second heater will run only a fraction of the time.
