A Hybrid Heating system is a fuel-saving alternative to traditional heating and cooling systems that combines a furnace with a state of the art heat pump, rather than an air conditioner.
The secret behind a Hybrid Heating system is a state-of-the-art heat pump and user interface. A heat pump works as an air conditioner in hot weather, but can also reverse the process and heat the home when cold weather arrives.
Rather than burning fuel to generate heat, the heat pump moves heat without a flame, making it a more efficient method of heating a home.

There are two types of heating systems used in garage heaters:
Radiant tube heating systems consists of “radiant energy” being emitted from a heat source. The heat energy is emitted from a warm element and warms people and objects in rooms rather than directly heating the air. This type of system can substantially lower your fuel bills while increasing your level of comfort. With high radiant heat efficiency, durability and reliability, a low maintenance heating system steadily warms your space.
A forced-air heating system is one which uses air as its heat transfer medium. These systems use ductwork and vents as a means of air distribution. Forced air systems are available in natural gas or propane models. They are typically low profile which makes for easy installation and service. Forced air heating is probably the most commonly installed in North America.

Heat pumps provide both heating and cooling for your home. A heat pump is essentially a central air conditioning system that can warm your home during times of cooler temperatures.
During the winter months, a heat pump extracts the heat that’s present in the air outside of your home and brings it into your home to keep you comfortable and warm. Heat pumps reverse this process in summer by pulling the heat out of your home’s air and releasing it outside to keep you cool and dry inside.
A typical heat pump installation will involve two parts: an outdoor component and an indoor component. The outdoor unit is very similar to a central air conditioner (in looks and size). The indoor unit is called an air handler and looks exactly like a standard gas furnace.
A heat pump is an efficient way to both heat and cool your home. They are so economical because they only have to move heat rather than make it. Unlike a furnace that requires fuel or electricity to generate heat, a heat pump simply gathers heat that already exists and pumps it into your home.
