Before we delve into the costs of heat pumps and gas furnaces, it’s important to clarify what a heat pump is, how it works, and when it makes the most sense to use it in terms of energy efficiency and cost savings. Let’s dive right in.
If you live in a mild climate where winter temperatures rarely fall below freezing, let along below zero, then your home may be a great candidate for an air source heat exchange pump which can act as a heating source during winter, while acting as a central AC in the summer.
