I have a source 1 gas furnace and a heat pump. Currently, where i live, electricity is significantly more expensive than gas. The controller can be set so that I can choose electric heat only, but there is no option for gas heat only. The temperature in the winter time here is often between 0 and 5 degree celcius so often the heat pump will run for heating, but it will run for a long time and it is not that hot. then when it gets a little colder, the gas kicks in and it heats the place in a few minutes.
So, in the current set up, the heat pump is running for a long time and the electrical bill is going through the roof.
Is there a controller change that I can have done or is it a software change?
