The intelli-HEAT™ Dual Fuel System helps homeowners achieve an electrified, sustainably built environment by integrating heat pumps with gas furnace systems and reducing fossil fuel usage. This new solution is compatible with any thermostatically controlled gas furnace and works with both single-zone and multi-zone systems. Furnaces remain available to the homeowner as a heating source for extreme cold conditions. intelli-HEAT provides cost-effective, efficient, and environmentally friendly cooling and heating all year round. Its versatile design optimizes variable speed technology and smart controls, resulting in lowered utility bills, reduced GHG emissions, and a quieter outdoor environment while providing the perfect level of comfort indoors.

The intelli-HEAT heat pump significantly reduces the reliance on the existing gas furnace. Many studies about gas-burning appliances report that prolonged exposure to pollutants from burning fossil fuels can negatively impact health, including decreased lung function, headaches, dementia, increased blood pressure, respiratory, eye, and skin irritation. Switching to an electric heat pump can help reduce these health risks.
