I was planning on a late fall install of a complete new system including duct. The more I learned here the more I figured I better continue the education before making a $ decision.
I have a 3 ton AC with nat gas for heat for 1400 sq ft . I was planning on going straight heat pump with 10kw of strips. After a few conversations I am thinking I need to reconsider dumping the gas. The heat is the only thing I use gas for and I like the fact that it blows hot air when it runs. Are heat pumps better at blowing warm air at lower outdoor temps than say 15 or 20 years ago?
Where I am located it rarely goes to freezing(yesterday and today it was low 70s and wet/humid). I guess it freezes in our area a couple of times a year, but the dog water at my house hasn't frozen in 3 winters.
So, please render some opinions on keeping the gas heat, going straight heat pump and strips, or some combination.
Thanks in advance!
