An electric heat pump avoids the combustion process. There’s no burning of fossil fuels, no greenhouse gases, hot surfaces, fumes, or fear of carbon monoxide. The system provides wonderfully quiet, clean, and safe heating without overly drying the indoor air. And if you partner the heat pump with a gas furnace to create a dual fuel system, you enjoy year round rewards. The lower energy bills recover the investment, and you can expect your furnace to operate more reliably and last longer.
