I am building a new house in the Raleigh NC area. I am building out to far to get Natrual gas so I am looking at LP.
The builder uses a lot of heat pumps, I am interested in possibly using a gas unit. I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts as the best way to go. A heat pump does not always seem to be very efficient when temps get real low out side. I am wondering if the gas unit will be more efficient and cheaper to run than a heat pump even using LP.
The units that are used are I believe to be 15 seer split heat pump, the house is also a energy star home. I am also looking at a gas hot water heater over electric if anyone has any thoughts on that also.
