I have a heat pump with gas backup. I live in Va so its pretty cold in the winter. I generally leave it on emergency heat because gas is cheaper than electric here. When the furnace turns on , the heat pump and furnace fan run for a minute then it shuts off and I can hear gas firing up and then blower comes back on. Since I use it like this could I just turn off the breaker to the heat pump so it wont keep coming on for 1 minute and shutting off all winter(it cant be good for the unit). Will this work ok if I shut off the 220v heat pump breaker?
