4Are you interested in the advantages of a Hybrid Heat
Maximum Comfort & Efficiency for Maximum Savings
Calendar: Heating Cooling Efficiency

Save throughout the year with a Hybrid Heat® Dual Fuel system

With a traditional heating and cooling system, if you wanted to save more, you had to use less. But a Hybrid Heat® Dual Fuel system combines the benefits of intelligent control for both gas and electric heating to create an intuitive system that can actually react to changing conditions. No matter what the temperature is outside, a Hybrid Heat® Dual Fuel system will automatically select the fuel source most efficient for your home, which means you'll stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

Hybrid Heat Systems

Hybrid Heat System

Split Systems are the most typical type of heating and cooling system. The Hybrid Heat system differs from a traditional split system by replacing the air conditioner with a heat pump. Heat pumps cool your home on hot days and provide efficient heating in moderate temperatures

5Would you be interested in the benefits of a Geothermal System?

The Natural Way

The Earth absorbs almost 50% of all solar energy and remains a constant temperature of 50oF to 70oF depending on geographical location. A geothermal unit utilizes this constant temperature as needed for heating and cooling. Rated best heating & cooling technology by the EPA. No greenhouse gasses are emitted.

Homeowner Advantages:

  • Low Utility Bills
    Up to 60% energy savings vs. traditional systems.
  • Safe and Clean
    No flame, no flue, no odors.
  • Noise Free
    No loud outdoor equipment.
  • Flexibility
    Heating, air conditioning, and hot water from a single compact unit.

6Are you interested in a variable speed system?
Advantages

Systems with variable speed blower motors have significant advantages over single speed systems.

Greater Comfort
  • Reduced room temperature fluctuation
  • Better humidity control
  • Quieter operation due to motor ramping up and down slowly vs on/off

Improved Indoor Air Quality

  • Air cleaners only filter the air when the blower is on -  variable speed can run continuously for just pennies a day
Save Money
  • Lower energy billsBag of Money
  • Improves system heating & cooling performance

*This chart is intended to provide information on particle size only, not air cleaner performance.

99% of the particles in the air are not visible to the naked eye. These are the particles that are most dangerous to your health:

  • Aggravating allergies and asthma
  • Contributing to colds and flu

A standard one-inch filter captures less than 5% of the particles in the air. This leaves the other 95% to:

  • Pollute indoor air
