What is Carrier’s HYBRID HEAT dual fuel system?
Carrier specializes in creating customized home comfort systems tailored to your needs with a broad selection of residential heating and cooling products. Your Carrier HVAC dealer can help you choose the best system for your home, including a HYBRID HEAT™ system designed to deliver maximum comfort and economy.
HYBRID HEAT dual fuel systems deliver exceptional performance by using a heating source that provides its most energy-efficient comfort during moderate heating conditions. As the temperature drops outside, the system automatically switches to your second heating source when that becomes the most economical way to keep your family comfortable. View an interactive demo:
Heating & Cooling Comfort
Carrier’s ultimate HYBRID HEAT system includes an Infinity™ 96 gas furnace with our Infinity™ 19 heat pump to provide soothing, superior comfort during both heat pump and furnace operation. This powerful combination can deliver heated air temperatures that are warmer than most traditional heat pumps so air from your vents feels warmer to the touch.
Because a Carrier HYBRID HEAT system also provides cool, indoor comfort when it’s hot outside, this system becomes your total, year-round indoor comfort solution. And with the recent increase in the SEER rating (SEER = Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) of air conditioners and heat pumps, a HYBRID HEAT system could also save you money during the cooling season.
No matter which control best fits your needs, you can count on automatic control of your HYBRID HEAT system. Your dealer will select a balance point that tells your control when it’s best to select electric heat and when it’s time to switch to furnace operation. As utility rates in your area change, this balance point can be easily adjusted by your installing dealer. To get the best efficiency from your system, we recommend taking advantage of the seven day program-mability to select a comfort schedule custom-fit to your lifestyle.
