As most of you know, we are moving. The new place has no central air/heat. It is currently heated with a gas heatilator downstairs and the fireplace upstairs which has a pretty neat blower/ductwork system. We are getting central air and heat and gonna go with electric because we both hate gas. We are planning on getting an outside wood boiler furnace later on so the electric would mainly be a backup system anyway. The heating/cooling guy told us that with the rebates that our electric company gives out for switcing over to electric, a heat pump wouldnt cost much more at all and he is going to give us a bid bothways (with a heat pump and with a regular setup) He says the heat pump really saves a lot on the heating bill but seems like I used to hear people didnt like them much. Anyone have any first hand experience with them and what did you think?
