Pair Your Furnace with a Heat Pump| Naperville, Olympia Fields

One of the biggest complaints among homeowners is high energy bills. Unfortunately for homeowners in Chicago, it is very difficult to sacrifice using the furnace or the air conditioner in order to save a few bucks every month. Our unpredictable summers are one thing, but our winters can be especially brutal. From Chicago all the way to Naperville, we are covered in a blanket of frigid snow. So, how are we going to save money?

What is a Heat Pump?

If you currently have a gas furnace heating your home, you may want to consider adding an electronic heat pump. A heat pump is combination heating and cooling system that uses electricity to move heat rather than to generate heat.  In the summer, the heat pump will act as your air conditioning by removing the hot air from inside your home and moving it outside. In the winter, the heat pump will pull hot air out of the outdoors and bring it indoors. Even if the outside feels cold, there is still heat present in the air for the heat pump to extract for use inside your home. This is a very efficient system because it generates two to three times more heat than the electricity it uses.

Why do I need both units?

However, a heat pump alone could not handle the extreme temperatures that our great city has to dish out. That is why you have the gas furnace as a backup system. Whenever the heat pump is unable to reach the temperature that is set on the thermostat, the furnace will kick in. Your gas furnace is sized to meet the needs of your home on the coldest days of the season, and with the help of a heat pump, that will be the only times when the gas furnace is used.

It’s all about energy efficiency

Four Seasons Heating and Air Conditioning offers gas fired furnaces like the Lennox G71P model. This is a high efficiency furnace that is compatible with a heat pump. It may seem like a bit of an investment, but with a furnace like this in your home, you will see a return on your investment in no time at all. That is because of the energy efficient features that this furnace is equipped with.

Besides being compatible with an electric heat pump, this furnace also carries an AFUE rating of 95%! What that means is that 95% of the gas that the G71P needs to operate is used to create heat for your home. The higher the AFUE rating the lower your gas bill will be because this furnace is able to generate more heat with less gas than your average gas furnace. It is because of this excellent AFUE rating that this furnace also carries the Energy Star label.

Even if you choose not to hook your gas furnace up to an electronic heat pump, you can still see huge savings by upgrading your old gas furnace to a new high efficiency model like the G71P from Lennox. Four Seasons carries a whole line of energy efficient Lennox Home Comfort Systems. Our knowledgeable salesmen are experts in furnace sales and will help you choose the right furnace for your home.
