I'm trying to decide between a heat pump vs straight electric.. I'm comparing the 14hpx vs the Xc13 and XC14 all 5 ton systems.. The 14hpx seems nice but does it have a loss of charge switches? Any recommendations?
Thanks Doc.. Winters are kinda cold but not bad.
The 5 ton sizing came from the fact that this unit was here when we moved in.. The house is 2700 sq ft and 120 miles south of Houston were it gets hot in the summer..
Doc, our area, the electric is pretty cheap, so actually it is comparative. Now if you have Ameren in my area, or live in one of the communities south of our town, the costs are cheaper to run gas heat, or a Heat pump, because the cost to deliver electric in those areas is higher.
You have to really sit down and compare costs, and if you have enough land space, then geo comes out even better if down south, or living out in the plains for heating & cooling.
