Define your Thermal Balance Point and Economic Balance Point
NO, however ...
The use of Aux Heat should be minimal with a properly sized heat pump system in some environments
depending on the Thermal Building Envelope.
Is that a filter size?
Yes, the sheets provide energy costs per floor for various fuels with the fuel unit cost noted.
___$560 for Natural Gas at $1.00/ therm
___$594 for Heat Pump at $0.115 / kW-hr
It hard to believe How low the load is

You can probably save the most electric $$ by
NOT Selecting the TIME-OF-USE Rates.
Exception: one effectively uses Very Large heat storage equipment.
Set upstairs __to 67'F + leave it.
How does the Heat Pump perform when it is
1. 26'F outside?
2. 15'F outside?
What is the Supply Air Temperature / Room Temp?
1. ____ / ___
2. _____/ ___
The real question ought to be ... Where should I set the switch-over temperature?

That seems to be:

What is the size of the house?
i.e. 40 x 28 feet single or 2-story

How much oil is used per year for heating?
Example: Pages 18 to 22 DEADBAND Adjustable 2'F to 8'F
For starters ... it sounds like a significant increase in the _deadband__ is needed.
LEAVING THE BASEMENT DOOR OPEN
would be the best alternative
you have a Duct Pressure Test
and Door Blaster Test
and have the opportunities to SEAL
the house and the ducts.
YOU CAN "REPLACE THE OWNER"
or make sure you have > THREE CARBON MONOXIDE ALARMS.
It does not matter if the unit is 1 day old or 40 years old,
CO Alarms are ALWAYS NECESSARY.
Total of 160,000 BTU/Hr might be able to heat about 8,000 sq feet
