heat pump


This is my first winter with a heat pump. Has no problem keeping the house at 70*F when its 13* outside without backup. Question is, will it cool in the summer heat, as well as it heats in the winter ??

Being that he said 70 degrees inside temp, common sense dictates he is using fahrenheit. Unless he is heating his house to over 150 degrees F inside.

If you have a 13 seer heat pump with 410a gas ,you'll be happy.

Check the COP of a heat pump at 13*f and then tell me that.

Newer cold weather heat pumps can handle it without backup coming on. Or do you really think he is heating his house to over 150 degrees F.

I will add, the cost seems a little higher than gas. We have had very few days below 20* F this winter, so its not been a big deal. Next winter I expect to program the thermostat to switch to gas a bit sooner. I intentionally let the heat pump run at cooler temps just to see if it would keep up.
