There are many different types of systems you can use to heat and cool your home – the trick is finding one that will be the most cost-efficient in both the summer and winter.
That’s why a gas furnace with air conditioning combo is an excellent choice for both cooling and heating your home. Also known as gas electric systems, these HVAC units use natural or propane gas to heat your home in the winter while relying on electricity to cool it during the summer.
How does a gas furnace with air conditioning component work?
It starts with the thermostat. Most modern homes have thermostats that control both the heating and cooling of the house. If a thermostat is set at a certain temperature – 72 degrees, for example – the HVAC unit will kick in as necessary to maintain that set temperature. If the temp rises above 72 degrees, the electricity-powered AC portion of the unit will activate until the optimal temperature is reached. If the temp in a room dips below 72 degrees, the gas-powered furnace will activate and stay on until the temperature rises back to 72 degrees.
