      Continuous indoor fan operation can degrade heat pump performance unless your system uses a high-efficiency, variable-speed fan motor. Operate the system on the "auto" fan setting on the thermostat. Consider installing (or have a professional install) a programmable thermostat with multistage functions suitable for a heat pump.   In many homes, we recommend a dual-fuel or hybrid system - retrofitting an air source heat pump with a gas furnace. this provides the best of both worlds: High efficiency electric heating with the heat pump when temperatures are mild, AND fast recovery with high efficiency gas heating when temperatures are colder.

      I installed this pump plus four of the valves. Since we have copper pipe, I ended up using a Sharkbite fitting which made the installation much easier. The valves are fairly easy to install other than having the flexible pipes getting in their own way. The system works well but I . An air source heat pump (ASHP) takes heat from the outside air and moves it indoors. Even at a low temperature there's enough ambient heat in the outside air to allow the heat pump to work efficiently. However, at lower temperatures, the backup heating system may be used, making the heat pump significantly less efficient.

        A central air source heat pump (ASHP) works most efficiently in temperatures above 0° Celsius. If the winter temperature in your region is consistently below 0° Celsius, your backup heating system, whether electric or gas, will kick in to keep your home warm. This could mean increased heating costs as the backup system won't be as efficient. For less moderate climates, installing a dual-fuel air source heat pump that works with a natural gas or propane furnace under a single control system can cost $2,$5, to install just the heat pump, or $5,$25, or more for a complete system that includes both the electric heat pump and a .

Cost of owning and operating a residential heat pump system in Canada by R. L. D. Cane Download PDF EPUB FB2

This paper outlines the operational characteristics of various residential heat pumps and compares the costs of owning and operating such equipment with conventional furnaces. The comparison is made for nine Canadian cities and for a range of heating energy demands.

Major Benefits of Earth-Energy Systems; Maintenance; Operating Costs; Life Expectancy and Warranties; Section 6 - Heating Energy Cost Comparison: Heat Pump and Electric Heating Systems. Factors Affecting Heating Cost Comparisons; Comparison Results; Section 7 - Related Equipment.

Upgrading the Electrical Service; Supplementary Heating Systems. Every home has the potential to save on heating costs by installing a mini split heat pump. However, not every home can save enough to justify the cost.

In order for a heat pump purchase to pay for itself over 5 – 7 years, a homeowner needs to be spending a certain amount of money on electric or oil heating per year.

Alarie says there's no question a heat pump is more efficient. It is the cost of the system he is questioning. He does not believe NB Power should be offering subsidies for heat-pump conversions.

HVAC System Cost. The average cost to replace an HVAC system is $4, to $9, which includes the combination of a new central air conditioner unit and a new gas lation of a new HVAC system with ductwork costs between $6, and $12, in total.

The average cost to install a heat pump is $5, typically ranging from $4, and $7, depending on the size of and type you need.

Mini-split systems run up to $14, Geothermal and solar tend to cost the most at $6, to $40, Annual operating costs for highly-efficient models are around $ for both heating and cooling. Expect the costs to go up or down depending on the size of your home and the quality of your heat pump system.

According to the information in the published the more efficient heat pump is the preferred unit to purchase.

I do not understand why you would say it depends. In each case, regardless of cost of electricity or geographic region it is cheaper to run a higher SEER unit 10 vs 14 for the examples shared.
