He said if you were going for solar panels, it would be smart to have all electric to enjoy huge energy savings that way
When I requested to have a free consultation through our local contractor, the HVAC guy was highly spirited. He seemed genuinely excited when it came to talking about all the different types of HVAC equipment in the modern age. He said he worked with his uncle on HVAC systems since he was a youngster and always dreamed about becoming an official HVAC expert, and he was finally living the dream. Everything he spoke about sounded so inspirational, I halfway wanted to go to an HVAC trade school after talking to this guy. Of course, we were only looking for the best type of HVAC system to have installed in our home. What really caught my attention was the hybrid heating systems. They sound like they only provide heating when in reality, they are a heat pump in combination with a furnace of sorts. The heat pump has both heating and cooling capability and I love that! Not to mention, these modern heat pumps are extremely energy efficient, and I expected to see a huge decrease in our energy costs. I asked about which furnace to go for, the oil, electric, or gas. The guy was saying it depends on your situation. He said if you were going for solar panels, it would be smart to have all electric to enjoy huge energy savings that way. He said some people prefer oil furnaces because they are safest, but they can be costlier to operate. He said personally, he would go for the gas furnace because you’d enjoy the most savings. So we went for a gas hybrid heating system and so far, we have been enjoying it immensely!
