What is a Hybrid Heating System?
A hybrid heating system (also referred to as a dual-fuel system) is an HVAC system that combines two or more heating sources. Typically, the system consists of a gas furnace or boiler and a heat pump. This is likely the most efficient and cost saving heat pump configuration for your home. When temperatures drop significantly the furnace may be needed to generate more heat quickly and effectively.
Reasons to Get a Heat Pump Instead of an AC
Heat pumps are dynamic 2-in-1 systems that both heat and cool a space.
Heat pumps might even take up less space than an air conditioner, depending on the model.
When you use a heat pump, you don’t emit exhaust. Heat pumps are powered by electricity and only transfer heat from one place to another.
Heat pumps can be used as a supplemental heat source in your cottage, basement, attic, or home.
When sized and installed properly, a heat pump can do most, if not all, of the heating your home may require.
Heat pump technology isn’t new. It’s been around and in use for many decades. Therefore, the tech is only getting better and better.
You can get a ducted heat pump or ductless heat pump. That means, even without ductwork, you have options.
Since heat pumps are so efficient and effective, the government and Enbridge Gas have rebates and grants to help Canadians make the switch.

Ducted vs Ductless Heat Pump Systems
Heat pumps are available in ducted and ductless models.
Ducted Heat Pumps
If your home already has ductwork in place, a ducted ASHP (air source heat pump) can be installed to replace a forced air furnace system. An outside unit is connected to an indoor unit where warm (or cool) air is distributed throughout your home via ducts.
Ductless Heat Pumps
Also known as a ductless mini-split heat pump, this system doesn’t require ductwork to deliver warm or cool air. Instead, a mounted air handler is installed within your home. Multiple interior air handler units can be installed to provide zoned heating and cooling throughout the home. Ductless heat pumps are the best option for homes without existing ductwork.
