Heat pump /// Cambridge Ontario (normally -20oC to + 35oC)


Hi

I will be removing an older furnace (with Aircon), however i am looking at the heatpumps, i understand how they work, but with temps from -20 in winter to +35 in summer will it be worth it?

Will the extra money never get regained over the fact it will need a standard Aircon unit / gas unit for heat?

Many Thanks
Ashley

Just my $.02

Stick with a gas furnace 95% and a regular A/C.

With temps like that a heat pump is not efficient

I agree. They are not cost effective below -5C and we get lots of that. High efficiency furnace is more comfortable and costs less to run in the Great White North.
