Are the heat strips more efficent than the pump or less efficient?
Also are they a necessity or luxury?
I am finishing my attic which is 2/3s the size of the downstairs. I will be installing an extra hvac unit. We live in a mild climate, sacramento CA, I am guessing the upstairs will have a very small heat demand since the heat will go up. It would be difficult but not impossible to run an extra wire for the heat strips. So I was kind of hopeing to avoid them.
