With chilly temperatures just around the corner in Quincy, Florida, it’s time to start thinking about heating your home. For the area’s relatively mild climate, one of the most efficient and technologically advanced options is a hybrid heating system.

What Is Hybrid Heating?

Hybrid heat systems combine typical fossil fuel heating with an electric heat pump. A hybrid heating unit switches from gas to electric heat, depending on the temperatures outside and inside your home. Either way, this type of system makes the most of your energy use.

Benefits of Hybrid Heating

Since winters in Quincy aren’t usually harsh, a hybrid heat system is a wise choice. Heat pumps become inefficient during frigid weather, since they have to work extra hard. Freezing weather in this area would spur a hybrid system to switch to fossil fuel heat, which is more efficient and economical for substantial warming needs. 

Hybrid systems are flexible, allowing you to switch fuel sources or let the system choose. Heat pumps can also act like air conditioners when you reverse them. This changes the direction of the air flow, moving warm air out instead of in. Many hybrid heat pumps feature humidity controls and filtration options to help improve indoor air quality.

You’ll save money with a hybrid heating system when you choose natural gas or propane as your fuel. Hybrid systems use either, and you can select the less expensive option for your home. You can also select the switching point — the point at which the system switches to fossil fuel — based on weather conditions and utility rates.
