    heat pumps and air

    thinking of a couple heat pumps, but noticed some systems are air conditioning too. News to me we dont have central air or heat around here really.


    so i got a question. what is cheaper to run? a few window air conditioners from a big box store that are energy star rated, or a hvac system?
    what is cheaper to buy and run (rephrase)_

    heat pump better without the air conditioning with it?

    And how come the ones i am looking at says not for cold areas, when they are heat pumps. im thinking electric, i dont know if i like gas.
    im in maine.

    What type of heat pumps are you looking at? I assume you're talking about central air/heat pump units added to your existing ductwork? Or are you talking about the mini-split or thru the wall HP units? Lots of difference between both, and prices also.
