When our hubby got an Heating as well as A/C professional to install an electric heating plan for our home, I had to remind him to ask whether all of us would need a backup gas furnace in case the electric heat pump failed.
The Heating as well as A/C serviceman explained that the electric gas furnace she was going to install for us was designed with integrated electricity resistance which works as the backup for the heating component when hot and cold temperatures go too low, but all 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 worker told us that all of us would need to pay on a HEPA filter and a wireless thermostat if all of us wanted the pump to toil more efficiently. The heating supplier stocked the latest smart thermostats, which all of us could choose from and get the perks of gas furnace repair alerts, temperature regulation, and remote control. The Heating as well as A/C business was keen to show us the warranty for each item all of us obtained, so all of us had two years to get free repairs and servicing. All of us didn’t need to use those because our heating component had been functional for numerous years without any failures or repairs. I had to ask about the backup heaters, and the expert mentioned that those needing them could use electric baseboards, boilers, fireplaces, or natural gas systems. The only disfortune is that they need you to burn things that contribute to high carbon emissions. I’m glad our hubby was stubborn about the fully electric plan because it has saved us a lot and still saves us energy. I had insisted on a dual heat pump, thinking that the gas area would be our backup.
