Dual Fuel Heat Pump

Dual Fuel SystemsAre you considering replacing your old central air unit? Take a look at an energy efficient dual fuel system. Platte-Clay offers a winter discount (see below for qualifications) and members will save year around.

Using a dual fuel comfort system to heat and cool your home is not that different from an existing furnace and air conditioner.

The dual fuel system simply combines the efficiency of an air-source heat pump (ASHP) with the cold-weather reassurance of a conventional gas furnace. Dual fuel systems give you the best of both worlds by providing year-round comfort and reduced fuel use.

How does it work?

split system heat pump heatingThe dual fuel system couples an air source heat pump (ASHP) with a conventional gas furnace. In winter, the dual fuel heat pump collects and compresses the heat that exists in outdoor air, and transfers it by means of a fluid-filled line from the outdoor unit to a heat exchanger inside your house. During extreme cold, when there is virtually no heat in the air, the gas furnace provides backup to the dual fuel unit, ensuring that the home’s comfort level remains constant throughout the year. In summer, the split system heat pump reverses the process to cool your home.

Why switch?

Dual fuel systems offer up to twice the efficiency of a conventional system. A split system heat pump replaces both the conventional heating system, down to about 30°, and the air conditioner.

The constant comfort of a dual fuel system is a pleasure all year round. When the dual fuel unit is running, it requires 35% less fuel and produces 35% fewer emissions than a conventional system.

Enjoy the savings

Ground Source Heat Pump

Ground Source Heat PumpMembers who are building a new home or changing out an old or inefficient heating and cooling system should consider a ground source heat pump (GSHP). Click here for help on proper HVAC sizing.

This remarkable system works efficiently to keep your home comfortable year round by using the Earth’s constant below-ground temperature of around 55 degrees to both heat and cool your home.

Using a ground source heat pump for heating and cooling has many advantages.

For every $1 spent, the system returns $4 to $5 worth of heat. It also can work in conjunction with your water heater to provide much of the home’s hot water absolutely free.

The system has no outside components, so it is not exposed to the elements and is environmentally safe, free of toxic fumes and waste.

Special installation rebates of $750 per ton (current amount, subject to change without notice) for a new unit are available for those who qualify. Call Platte-Clay at 816-628-3121 or e-mail us at davec@pcec.coop and find out if a GSHP is for you. Platte-Clay rebates $150 a ton for a replacement unit.
