Do I Need a Heat Pump Backup?

Installing a heat pump is one of the most efficient decisions you can make for you home because it works as both a heating and cooling system. It can do double duty because it simply transfers heat energy from one source to another. In the winter, it draws heat energy from the outdoor air and then transfers it into the indoor air—in the summer it simply works in reverse! However, this means that when the temperature nears freezing, your heat pump’s efficiency can start to diminish—but don’t worry because there’s an easy solution to this problem!

Installing a heat pump backup, such as a gas or oil furnace, is the most economical solution to heating your home! How this works is that the heat pump backup will only switch on when the temperature drops to a specific level (usually somewhere around freezing) to supply supplemental heat—and it will switch back to your heat pump as soon as the outdoor temperature rises again. That means you will always be using the most efficient method of heating for your home, depending on the outdoor temperature. Whether you already own a heat pump or you’re selecting a new heating system for your home, the experts at Arctic Air Conditioning can install this setup (known as a dual fuel heat pump) for you!

The Benefits of a Heat Pump Backup

All heat pumps come with an emergency electric resistance heater—unfortunately, these are typically inefficient and unable to heat your home effectively when faced with our cold New Jersey winters. That’s why you would want to install a dual fuel heat pump system. Installing a heat pump backup has many benefits, including:

Efficient heating – As we previously mentioned, having a heat pump backup, such as a furnace, provides the most efficient heating possible because you’re using the heat pump’s energy transfer when the temperature is high enough and switching to the backup fuel source only when necessary. You will always be using the most efficient heating option available based on the temperature.

Consistent heat – When you have a heat pump backup, your home will always have consistent, even heat. No matter what the outdoor temperature is, you and your family will be comfortable and cozy because your backup fuel source will kick in whenever it is needed, meaning you should never experience a dip in the indoor temperature.

Environmentally friendly – Since your heat pump backup will only burn fuel when absolutely necessary, it is very environmentally friendly. Your dual fuel heat pump will not generate nearly as much pollution as running a furnace alone or an electrical resistance heater.
