Couple talking to HVAC rep - Dual Fuel Heat Pumps in Canada: What You Need to Know

With climate change concerns on the rise, homeowners are looking for energy-efficient heating options that can help them save money on their energy bills. One option that’s gaining popularity is the dual-fuel heat pump. In this article, we’ll discuss what a dual-fuel heat pump is and whether it’s worth the investment in Canada.  

What is a Dual Fuel Heat Pump? 

A dual-fuel heat pump combines two sources of energy to provide efficient heating. One part of this system, the heat pump, uses electricity to heat your home during milder weather. When temperatures drop below a certain point, a secondary heating system, such as a natural gas furnace, kicks in to provide additional warmth. This hybrid system can be an excellent option for Canadian homeowners who want to maximize energy efficiency while ensuring reliable heating during extremely cold weather. 

Is a Dual Fuel Heat Pump Worth It? 

The cost of a dual-fuel heat pump may be higher than average upfront costs, but it can offer significant savings on your energy bills in the long run. Dual fuel heat pumps are highly efficient and more environmentally friendly than traditional furnace heating alone. If you live in an area that regularly sees temperatures below -15°C, a dual-fuel heat pump may be worth the investment.
