I used to live in a house that had a heat pump.

All you feel is cold air blowing even during heating season.

With gas, when you want heat, you get heat.

I'd recommend getting a heat pump system that has gas as backup.

Or, if you live in a cold region, I'd recommend radiant heating via a gas boiler.

Hello, I was searching and found this post and I had a couple questions to go along with it. I currently have an insert fireplace, it produces heat, a lot more then a common fireplace but I know its not that efficient. From what I found on the internet, inserts produced before 1991 are a lot LESS efficient then later models, and far less then current models (mine was installed in 87). I am looking at updating my insert or switching to a pellet insert. I have a 2700 sq ft home but am only really interested in heating the living room and kitchen downstairs. I am burning though a lot of wood and just not getting the heat that I was expecting after reading all the hype about insert fireplaces. I use a space heater for our upstairs master bed and bath. no kids so the other 3 bedrooms stay closed. I got the info about the insert from this site so it might be BS but it makes sense to me.
