What Is a Hybrid Heating System?

As the term “hybrid” suggests, a hybrid heating system is a combination of 2 different heaters. An energy efficient heat pump is the primary source of heating. Air source heat pumps utilize existing heat in the air in order to heat your home with minimal energy expenditure. Refrigerant in the system absorbs this thermal energy, and the refrigerant is then compressed in the system. This boosts the thermal energy further, and this energy is used to heat air for distribution throughout the house.

When temperatures drop very low, though, a heat pump may struggle to generate enough heat to warm a house reliably. In a hybrid heating system, this is no problem, as a backup heater, such as a gas furnace, is standing by to pick up the slack. The gas furnace will come on only when it is really needed, and will automatically shut off when its service is no longer necessary. This allows you to enjoy great energy efficiency when heating your home, without having to worry about a serious cold front proving too much for your heat pump to successfully handle.
