When my partner got an Heating plus A/C professional to install an electric oil furnace for our home, I had to remind him to ask whether we would need a backup furnace in case the electric heat pump failed.
The Heating plus A/C serviceman explained that the electric furnace he was going to install for us was designed with integrated electricity resistance which works as the backup for the heating unit when rapidly increasing temperatures go too low.
The two of us wouldn’t need more heating component to back up the heat pump, which was a relief because I couldn’t imagine spending more money. However, the heating serviceman told us that we would need to spend my money on a HEPA filter plus a wireless temperature control if we wanted the pump to labor more efficiently. The heating supplier stocked the latest smart temperature controls, which we could choose from plus get the perks of furnace service alerts, temperature regulation, plus remote control. The Heating plus A/C contractor was keen to show us the warranty for each item we bought, so we had multiple years to get free repairs plus servicing. The two of us didn’t need to use those because our heating unit had been functional for several years without any failures or repairs. I had to ask about the backup heaters, plus the expert mentioned that those needing them could use electric baseboards, boilers, fireplaces, or natural gas systems. The only disluck is that they need you to burn things that contribute to high carbon emissions. I’m cheerful my partner was stubborn about the fully electric system because it has saved us a lot plus still saves us energy. I had insisted on a dual heat pump, thinking that the gas section would be our backup.
