Upgrading to a dual fuel system

My hubby plus I moved our family to South Bend, Indiana, because of an advantageous job opportunity! The significant increase in income allowed us to purchase a big piece of property plus a property big enough to provide our four kids their own home offices. However, relocating from the deep south was quite an adjustment, while the summers are quite warm plus somewhat humid, the temperature rarely climbs above eighty-five. The winters are extremely brutal. They are long, freezing cold, snowy plus windy. The average snow accumulation is upwards of sixty inches, plus the wind chill is downright dangerous; I don’t guess I will ever get accustomed to the winter weather, then my buddy and I bought a home that was outfitted with a forced air boiler to heat the entire home but only window cooling systems. I was not cheerful with having a window unit blocking the view plus destroying curb appeal! Plus, I didn’t like having certain rooms cool plus others tepid plus sticky. When I began researching central cooling systems, I spoke with a local Heating and Air Conditioning corporation from South Bend. She advised that I invest in an electric heat pump. The combination of a heat pump plus boiler is called a dual fuel system plus provides some major advantages. While the heat pump was a larger investment than an cooling system, it supplies both heating plus cooling. The heat pump acts like an cooling system during the Summer but reverses operation when the temperature cools off to transfer heat energy indoors. The process is especially energy efficient, making it less fancy to operate than the boiler. When the temperature drops below freezing, the boiler automatically starts up plus handles demand for as long as necessary.
