Experience the Comfort of a Dual Fuel System. Many of the fuel systems we offer at Mitchell Heating in Colorado Springs increase your home’s efficiency more when they work in partnership with another Lennox® system than they by themselves. The same is true for for our dual fuel capacity gas furnaces and heat pumps, which can work together to deliver higher efficiency and greater comfort for you. Both systems work well alone, but when you marry the gas furnace and the heat pump, you’re taking advantage of both gas and electric fuel. The two systems will change between electric or gas heat depending on your desired indoor air temperature and the operating efficiency of each unit. This works the same way as a hybrid car, alternating between electric power at low speed and gas power when there’s a higher demand for maximum MPG. You’ll be able to hone your energy use, and you could decrease your heating budget. Usually the electric heat is used until the outdoor temperatures fall to about 32 degrees Fahrenheit before switching to gas. Not only will you feel comfortable, but you can feel good about the efficiency of your dual fuel systems, too.

Mitchell Heating is located in Colorado Springs, so you can easily schedule an appointment to have us do an in-home consultation and show you how a dual fuel system could work for your home.
